    Go to gameloft dot com and you will now be able to choose between the current games available for the evo like nova, hero os sparta, west coast hustle, lets golf etc. but what does this mean? Are they still the laggy ones we have seen, or have they somehow optimized it for snapdragon for better performance? Im really curious to try this out but fear for crap framerate

    Nova runs great on my evo. Can't give you any specifics, but I've had no noticeable framerate drops.

    No, but they should release into market ... and only let them be downloaded by certain phones.

    I wish they'd do that.

    I knew to not get my hopes up... thats Qualcomm for ya, making crippled cpu's since the htc tilt days... how hard is it to implement a good gpu on it? Thats why omap is pwning in gfx even at lower mhz...

    Oh well, back to my snesoid!! Still love my evo

    So the Asphalt I bought on the Market is not the right version I should of bought? It is too late for a refund. It seems fine. What is the difference?

    Well? Does it run right?

    I don't think Qualcomm is to blame for this. Aren't these games optimized for the omap processors? They first made them for the iphone...
    ... then ported to Pre, which worked out well.

    However, I wish people would make Android, snapdragon efficient games and mark them in the market as "playable on Evo, Incredible, N1"... etc.

    What game did you buy?

    It's not just about the clock frequency of the phone, there's more to it.

    Gameloft started developing initially on the iPhone which is using a PowerVR GPU. The next phone blessed with their games was the Pre, which is using, you guessed it, a PowerVR GPU. The reason Gameloft ported to the Pre first was because it was an easy straight port from the iPhone version to the Pre, after all, same GPU, same resolution.

    Now they are porting to the Snapdragon Android phones. Higher resolution, and a different GPU, the AMD Z430, which while capable, isn't quite as good as the PowerVR. Also, since it's a different GPU and because Gameloft does quick ports, it's also not optimized for the Evo's GPU. So combine the higher resolution (could be that they just stretch the screen out and not actually render in 480 x 800), with a less capable GPU, with non optimized code for that GPU, and you're gonna see performance issues, and a whole lot of people that don't know what's going on screaming "Why won't my super phone play this game as good as my last phone!!!?"

    But yeah, I wish the Snapdragon was accompanied by the next version of the PowerVR, it would have been an even bigger beast!

    then again you would THINK that gameloft is aware of the performance issues with their android hd games, and possibly OPTIMIZE them, instead of leaving them as is.

    You would hope so. I actually did see differences in Dungeon Hunter between the Pre and Evo version. Not only is the character selection menu different, but so are the textures and lighting. The Pre version, hate to say it, has nicer lighting and textures (more detailed), so I guess maybe that was their way of optimizing it, by reducing image quality?

    Bought nova for evo even though i already owned it for pre. Not saying it has a consistently low frame rate but it definitely has fits of choppyness every ten seconds or so. I think if the pre had a bigger screen id have returned the evo already

    Edit: just tried nova again for arguments sake and its even worse than I remembered. I get it when you say its not optimized for our phones but all that means is we are paying a premium to get sh!tty ports

    Because the Market allows refunds within 24 hours of purchase. Gameloft's policy is no refunds, period. The Market also allows you to access your purchases from new devices, and Gameloft's policy is one purchase, one installation.
