Currently Tinkering: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 Gaming

20121012-sgpga-01

Yup, I’m not done talking about the Samsung Galaxy 4.2, but we won’t delve into the gadget but more of the games this time around. I’ve been installing a ton of games recently to see how it fares, although I have mentioned that the player is not really designed for pure gaming since the 1Ghz processor is not up to par these days. Here I’ll be listing the games I have already installed and my initial thoughts about them regarding performance (not game reviews… those come later).

  • Air Control Lite – performance was very good and pretty fast.
  • Angry Birds – this is the only game that’s preinstalled with the Galaxy Player 4.2. So, it works great out of the box.
  • Angry Birds Rio – works great.
  • Angry Birds Seasons – good too.
  • Angry Birds Space – same as before… works great.
  • Bad Piggies – loaded up a little slow. some lag in between loading, but it works fine overall.
  • Blood and Gore – this is an Infinity Blade clone, and it works great and smooth.
  • ChuChu Rocket – works perfectly.
  • Cut the Rope: Experiments – another game that works great, but I did experience a hang up once.
  • Devil Ninja 2 – simple running side scroller, so performance is pretty good.
  • Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave – not playable on the device. Too much lag that playing is too hard. I suggest not to install it on the Galaxy Player.
  • Dungeon Village – it’ a pretty light game, and it works great.
  • Eternity Warriors 2 – the game lags a bit, but still playable. Graphics is pretty good too.
  • FIFA 12 – this comes as a standard game, but you have to download it first. It’s a pretty big game on it’s own. Performs pretty good, but you can’t uninstall it once it’s there.
  • Frontline Commando – from the makers of Eternity Warriors 2, the graphics is amazing for a small device and it works perfectly. Loading can be a tad too long though. I actually thought the system hanged up on me again.
  • Flow Free – this game has barebones graphics which makes it fast and fluid.
  • Fruit Ninja Free – works great, no lags
  • Minecraft Pocket Edition – works perfectly, no lags.
  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit – this comes with the device. You need to download a bit to get it running, but it does show that it’s an EA game. Performance is very good too.
  • PewPew 2 – game is pure line art, so the games runs pretty fast.
  • Puzzle Quest 2 – other than the main download, it will download more once you get it running. The game is a tad sluggish but playable.
  • Slice It – another puzzle game, you wouldn’t notice immediately but it does use 3D. Works wonderful.
  • Starstruck – a Pinoy made slapping/fighting game, works great. Graphics seem a little stretched.
  • Temple Run – It’s a little choppy at the start, but once the game is running, it’s pretty good and smooth.
  • Zenonia 4 – wonderful RPG game, good graphics too. No lags here.
