E3 just kicked off a few minutes ago and our friends at NVIDIA are showcasing 5 big time TegraZone games at their booth. All five are Tegra 3-optimized, which make them console-like quality. The first is Dead Trigger (pictured above), which we told you about last week. It’s a First Person Shooter and it’s your job to take down all the zombies. The Tegra 3-optimized version provides effects like enhanced water, specular lighting, volumetric fog and ragdoll physics. It should be available by the end of this month.
Next up is Puddle THD (pictured below). This game is already on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network, but for the first time is being shown off utilizing the power of the Tegra 3. It has simple mechanics in that you guide the water to a target through tilt controls. With Tegra 3 you get higher resolution textures, advanced fluid effects, better shadows and advanced physics effects.
Demons’ Score THD (pictured below) also utilizes the Tegra 3 and is a break-beat action game that integrates music with battles. It features high-quality 3D graphics thanks to Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3. Tegra 3 optimization brings higher resolution textures, advanced bloom effects, rim lighting, dynamic shadows and depth-of-field effects.
Bounty Arms (pictured below) is a 3D side-scrolling action game created by Open-Reset and Luma Arcade. Tegra 3 enhancements include visual and performance upgrades and exclusive content like co-op play and advanced particle effects.
Last but not least is Heroes Call (pictured below), which is an RPG with “lush” graphics, many quests, and multiple characters with varied abilities. With Tegra 3 optimization you get higher resolution light maps, spectacular maps on character weapons and armor and additional physics interaction on objects and particles.
