Gameloft has lifted the lid on BackStab - a slick looking Prince of Persia-style action adventure which will be exclusive to the Sony Ericsson (SE) Xperia Play.
Backstab, which will be available solely to Play owners for a month, features an open 3D environment for free roaming and looks to have a lot more going for it than the PS One-standard games we tried on the handset a few weeks back.
Steve Walker, head of marketing at SE, said: "BackStab sets a high benchmark graphically and technically for gaming on a smart phone and it is a fantastic addition to the fast growing portfolio of quality releases for Xperia Play.”
News of additions to the line-up of titles for the Play comes ahead of its official UK launch next month. Almost every UK carrier is on board with the phone, which packs the latest Gingerbread version of Android, plus dedicated gaming controls and a 1GHz processor.
