Who says Android can’t do quality games? That was true in the early days but today many high-end smartphones match, and some exceed, the graphical prowess of Apple’s iPhone 4. Look no further than Gameloft’s BackStab HD, a premium hack’n’slash action game that puts you in the shoes of Henry Blake, “a man whose life was stripped away and help in his quest for revenge”. Due to complex graphics and the inclusion of four big cities scattered around an 18th century Caribbean island, this Assassin’s Creed lookalike works only on supported Android smartphones listed on the game’s Android Market page:

HTC’s Desire HD (Ace), Desire S, Desire Z (G2, Vision), Evo Shift 4G, Incredible 2, Incredible S, Inspire 4G, MyTouch 4G, Thunderbolt 4G; LG’s P990 Optimus 2X (Star) and P999 (Star, G2x); Motorola’s Droid X; Samsung’s Nexus S, Nexus S 4G, GT-i9000 (Galaxy S, i9000M, i9000B, i9000T), SC-02B (Galaxy S), SCH-i400 (Continuum), SCH-i500 (Fascinate, Galaxy S), SCH-i500 (Fascinate, Galaxy S), SGH-T959 (Vibrant), SPH-D700 (Epic 4G) and Galaxy Tab models GT-P1000, SCH-i800, SGH-T849 and SPH-P100.
