Square Enix Release Tomb Raider For Android

Square Enix releases Tomb Raider for Android for only 99 cents.

You would think it being April 1st that this type of news would be a joke, but it most definitely is not. Today Square Enix brings the 1996 classic Tomb Raider to the Google Play store. In its own right, you would think that this was a joke as it seems like such an obscure game with the type of graphics that mobile phones bring to the table. However, the most unrealistic part about this is that the game is only 99¢. Why is this shocking? Well, most games that Square Enix brings to the Android table usually launch with an outrageous price such as $15-$20.

The game features everything that was available in the original and two additional chapters in the 1998 re-release, but with touch controls this time around. The game also says that it supports controllers, but the store description says that it supports the MOGA Ace Power and the Logitech PowerShell. The issue is that these are both controllers built for iPhones not Android. As to whether or not the game really has controller support for Android is uncertain, but for 99¢ it could still be a playable game with only on-screen controls.
