Tomb Raider the series responsible for bringing the original girl video game star Lara Croft is making its way to Android as a SHIELD TV exclusive from NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios doing the porting work. Now if you’re a GeForce Now member you may have noticed it’s also been on that service too making it the first if not one of the first to be on both GeForce Now and Android.
For those unfamiliar with the plot of this game it’s a 2013 reboot of the series which explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold.
The game runs at 720p but still looks very beautiful and runs very smooth, similar to the Xbox/PS4 versions and requires 5.5 gigs of storage to be installed. This version supports Google Play Achievements and cloud saves with Google Play Games sign-in. As of now Co-op and Multiplayer aren’t supported.
Available via Google Play for $14.99, gamers can see how this fantastic action game has improved on the already stellar franchise formula. Better still, the SHIELD TV version bundles in the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer DLC, which includes extra outfits, skills, and weapon upgrades!
