Action and Arcade Games Action and arcade games usually unleash the full potential of the Android platform. Many of them feature stunning 3D visuals, demonstrating what is possible on the current generation of hardware. The genre has many subgenres, including racing games, shoot’em-ups, first- and third-person shooters, and platformers. This segment of the Android Market is still a little underdeveloped, as big companies that have the resources to produce such titles are hesitant to jump on the Android wagon. Some indie developers have taken it upon themselves to fill that niche, though. Replica Island (Figure 3–5) is probably the most successful platformer on Android to date. It was developed by Google engineer and game development advocate Chris Pruett in an attempt to show that one can write high-performance games in pure Java on Android. The game tries to accommodate all potential device configurations by offering a huge variety of input schemes. Special care was taken that the game performs well even on low-end devices. The game itself involves a robot that is instructed to retrieve a mysterious artifact.
