Wield the SHIELD: ‘The Conduit’ Breaks Away From the Console and on to Tegra 4

by Will Park

At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this week, we’re surrounded by high-quality games of all flavors. One of these games has broken out of the console gaming mold and is ready to take on Project SHIELD and the Tegra 4 mobile processor. Meet The Conduit HD.

You may remember this award-winning, fast-paced first person shooter from its original launch on the Nintendo Wii. Today, we’re demonstrating the Tegra 4-enhanced version of the game on Project SHIELD, with visual effects that go above and beyond what was possible on the console just a few short years ago.

Set in a near-future America, the game has you battling 14 unique enemies – each with their own tactics, strengths and weaknesses – using 18 different weapons. You play the role of Michael Adams, a Secret Service agent in Washington D.C. who’s been recruited by the shadow organization Trust. Your mission is to fight alien and human baddies to discover the nature of a mysterious attack on America’s capital city.

The game has been optimized to take full advantage of game controllers. With nearly endless customization options, you can tailor the game play to fit your style. In the video below, we highlight the intuitive controls and un-compromised portability of Project SHIELD.

The Conduit HD is available on Google Play today. It’s free to play, and with Project SHIELD, it’s free to play the way you want.
