Nvidia has released two new games for his or her Shield make of devices. This first game comes from Tripwire interactive called Killing Floor: Calamity, while the second title originates from Tasharen Entertainment and it is called Windward. Both games also support Android TV, specifically Nvidia Shield Android TV.

Killing Floor: Calamity by Tripwire Interactive

Killing Floor: Calamity is a dual-stick arcade shooter form of the original first-person shooter game Killing Floor for PC. In the original game, players went head on with hordes of undead creatures, trying to kill them all while trying to stay alive. This new arcade version takes exactly the same themed but changing it into a dual-stick top-down shooter. The sport itself takes place in the devastated cities and countryside of England following a series of cloning experiments for that military went horribly wrong. You are taking the function of the military soldier sent into the worst areas using the sole job of killing everything.

Killing Floor: Calamity Features:

? 21 of the superheroes from the PC version
? All 10 Zeds in the Clot towards the Husk are included and as dangerous as ever
? 7 Perks upgradeable to Level 20, with added new special abilities
? 9 new maps specifically designed for top down shooter mayhem
? 35 unique weapons C including 3 special weapons (Golden AK47, Leafblower, Dual Mac-10)
? Have fun with a friend! 2 player local co-op available only on the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet and NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV
? Enhanced lighting effects and resolution textures only on NVIDIA SHIELD devices.

While the 2-player local co-op is just available on the Shield tablet and Shield Android TV, Killing Floor: Calamity can be obtained for all three Shield devices. It is also on sale to celebrate its release for any limited time. You can pick this game up for $4.99 while it is for sale, then for $9.99 once the sale ends.

WindWard by Tasharen Entertainment

Windward is another PC game (on Steam) that has been brought to cellular devices. This is a pretty interesting multiplayer sandbox game that can take place on the open seas. While players will go only at that game solo, Windward was actually made to be played in a co-op multiplayer fashion. Your world is procedurally generated, so it will be different from other player’s worlds, or other world you create. From there you’ll create your own faction, sailing across the seas, completing quests (or simply exploring), trading with towns, and fighting with pirates of course.

The AI in this game actually learns as well to some degree. Accumulating your reputation will either have AI controlled characters fearing you or respecting you. Some friendly AI may even decide to follow you and help you in your own adventures. Combat is all based on the open seas, and you’ll be in a position to upgrade your ships any way you like. You can make them fast and agile, or a massive military warship, or perhaps a trading vessel, anything you feel works best for you.

Windward is not readily available for all Shield devices. It is available just for the Shield Android TV and also the Shield tablet. Downloading a copy of the game will cost you $9.99 but considering the massive replay value Windward has, it’s well worth the price.
