While it may seem like iOS gets all the really cool mobile games, it looks like a growing number of developers are paying attention to Android. Dungeon Hunter 3D, which I wrote about recently is a visually stunning game for the platform, and popular iOS 3D MMPORPG Pocket Legends is also available for Android, not to mention the uber-popular physics-based game Angry Birds. No it looks like Android is about to gets its first mobile game based on Unreal Engine 3: Dungeon Defenders.

Unreal Engine 3 is the same platform that the ridiculously gorgeous iOS game Infinity Blade is built on. While Dungeon Defenders doesn’t come close to matching the beautiful graphics in that game, it does have the same basic 3D underpinnings, which should make for some interesting game play.

Dungeon Defenders recently launched for iOS, and the developer says it will be available for Android on December 23rd.

The game is described as a Tower Defense Action RPG… and it makes my head hurt to think about that. Because not all Android phones are created equal, not all Android devices will be able to run the game. But if you have a machine with 512MB or more of RAM, an OpenGL ES 2.0 capable GPU, an 800MHz or faster CPU, and Android 2.1 you should be all set. You’ll also need 400MB of free space on your SD card.
