Back in November of this year we mentioned that GREE was partnering up with various companies to bring a rather interesting selection of titles to Android. While these releases would be Japan-only at first, chances are they will be coming to the rest of the world soon as seen with previous games released onto Android. One of these titles is now here, or in Japan rather, and it is Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops.

As you may be guessing from the name, this game is a bit more of a social game and follows the mechanics of card battle RPG titles. You’ll be playing as Snake and organizing troops to take on big enemies. Once you are organized, you’ll be infiltrating whatever base you are tasked to sneak into and taking out whatever your target may be for that particular mission. Unlike a lot of games of this nature, battle scenes and infiltration is completely rendered in 3D and battles are fully animated in said 3D graphics.

There are also all of the familiar characters from the entire Metal Gear series of games in this new title which you can also collect. Since this is a card battle social game, you can download Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops for free off of Google Play if you live in Japan or happen to use an app like Market Enabler. You’ll also need a Japanese GREE social gaming platform account to play.

Important Note: Please be advised that once you download this game and go to run it the first time, it will ask for root access. We have no idea why it would do that but selecting no will move everything forward and the game will still run. This could be some messed up bug that the developers need to fix or it could be on purpose. If you don’t feel like this is safe, don’t download it until the official English version is released.

24 Dec 12 Dragon’s Lair’s futuristic cousin Space Ace flies onto Google Play

If you happen to be old enough to remember the hay days of the arcade generation, most people from that generation will remember Dragon’s Lair which happens to be available for Android for awhile now. Well Dragon’s Lair has a futuristic cousin called Space Ace and he’s also now available on Google Play.

We call Space Ace the cousin of Dragon’s Lair because the game came out roughly a few months after Dragon’s Lair hit the arcades and it features a similar style of gameplay and cinematic cut-scenes like Dragon’s Lair came with. However, the gameplay wasn’t totally the same because in Space Ace the action is a bit more variety and at times you have a choice as to whether you want to stay in ‘boy form’ or change into an adult.

For those of you who have played Dragon’s Lair, you’ll have no problem jumping into this game. For the uninitiated, basically you need to touch the virtual d-pad in the right direction when you are prompted to. You’ll only have about a second or two to do so and if you don’t, you end up dead. Digital Leisure has also gone ahead and remastered all the footage of the original game to fit every screen’s resolution so it should look pretty stellar on both phones and tablets.

If you’re up for a little adventure reflex gaming this holiday week, you might want to grab a copy of Space Ace. Doing so will cost you $4.99.
