The JXD S601 is essentially, a sub $75 Android hand held manufactured by JXD of China. What you get under the hood is an ARM A9 CPU, a Mali400 3D chip and 4 gigs of memory total powered by 512 megs of RAM on a 4:3 resistive touch screen (for dual touch check out the S602 but be warned, it has a different 3D chip so games may look different on it).
Bang for the buck, the JXD S601 is hard to beat, that is why we are featuring some of the best games available for it that we have discovered so far.
Beach Buggy Blitz by Vector Unit is quite possibly the best looking Android game I have encountered so far. It is certainly the most polished, it quite literally could be a 1st party Nintendo game, it is that good. It takes everything people hate about Android and iOS games and makes them alright- In App Purchases are available but everything is obtainable with a few hours of playing. Updates are well thought out and don’t break the game they are updating and it is just plain fun.
Raiden Legacy by DotEmu, what can be said about having four great, retro, overhead scrolling shooters in your pocket? Playing on the S601 is easy and the games run great, what more could you ask for other than nail biting intensity and kick butt challenge?
Blood and Glory by Glu Mobile is what I thought fighting games would be like on touch screen devices. Just awesome and outside of some hiccups here and there, B&G runs great on the S601. Get in the arena and show the emporer your gladiatorial skills.
Running Fred by Dedalord is how running games should be done. There, I said it. Running Fred is just plain fun to play, entertaining and challenging. Much like Beach Buggy Blitz, the polish here is phenomenal, Dedalord know their stuff, now how about a Fred Kart or something?
Wild Blood is the last title for this round up (we have more coming up that are more focused lists). Running on Unreal Technology, probably, technically this game shouldn’t run on the S601 (Batman The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spiderman either don’t load or are graphically crap on the S601 for instance). Take up the slack King Arthur has left as you play Sir Lancelot trying to fix the world. Long load times, some graphical bugs and quick deaths don’t demean this games fun and polish.
There you go, five great titles to show off your S601 Android hand held to naysayers that don’t believe it is cool or powerful. These games cover a wide range of genres, that was the point, so in the future, we will do coverage of more focuses lists of games for gamers of a certain persuation (not everyone is a fan of EVERY genre and we understand that).
Now go enjoy your hand held, no matter what you have, who made it or how much it cost- just enjoy it.
