Platinum Apps has just lowered the price on their awesome Air Hockey game made just for Android Honeycomb tablets. What we have is Platinum Air Hockey bringing amazing graphics and life-like physics to Honeycomb. I’ve played a few air hockey games in the past — but with stunning HD graphics on my 10″ tablet this sure beats anything else I’ve tried so far. More details and pictures after the break.
Like I said above air hockey games are nothing new. Platinum Apps have thrown a little spin on the game and not only does it look stunning on Honeycomb, but they’ve also allowed us to theme the ice ring (aka background) and entire game to look nothing like hockey. For Basketball fans you can change it to a court with a basketball, or we can make the entire field of play look old school in the stone age. It’s actually really neat and I think I enjoy the prehistoric stone the most.
Available now in the Android Market they offer both a free version with limited functionality, as well as a paid version that is now discounted to just $1.02 for the time being. The paid version you have access to all the themes and more. With lightning fast accuracy and response, life-like physics, a slick design with multiple themes and the option to play multiplayer wirelessly they’ve covered everything you’d want in a hockey game app. At first I scored a quick 4 goals and though medium was too easy, but I soon learned I was just lucky and found myself behind real quick. Feel free to check out the images below in our full size gallery and then head to the market and give this a try on your Android Honeycomb tablet.
