Coinciding with an iOS Chinese New Year promotion, Gameloft now has a bunch of their excellent BlackBerry PlayBook games on sale for $0.99 a pop. These include Asphalt 6, UNOStar Front: Collision, Modern Combat 2, and Eternal Legacy

Gameloft started pumping out a bunch of PlayBook titles this fall, and the quality is second only to EA's titles. Even then, sometimes Gameloft is much more open about doing "homages" to other popular games than EA. Asphalt 6 is a good pick if you've already played the preloaded Need for Speed to death. The familiarity of UNO will be a welcome sight for those looking for something a little more casual. I've put some time into Star Front: Collision, and as a guy who had spent a healthy chunk of high school playing StarCraft, it was a great addition to my PlayBook.

Modern Combat 2 is a clear spiritual descendent of the Modern Warfare series on consoles, and it manages to do pretty well, especially with the multiplayer support. I'm still not sold on the control scheme, but I'd be willing to give it another serious shot once the iOS version of Modern Combat 3 gets ported over to the BlackBerry PlayBook Finally, Eternal Legacy is a classic Final Fantasy-style role-playing game, I haven't had the itch to play those kind of games in awhile, but it's great to have the option there. 

Gameloft has also slashed prices on a few other games to $2.99, including Spider-man: Total Mayhem, N.O.V.A. 2, and Let's Golf 2. Normally most of Gameloft's PlayBook games go for $6.99, so this is quite the deal - get 'em while they're hot!

    dang it. i want the uno and modern combat. stupid appworld error 11400 and everything in my account is correct too.

    Awwe heck, no fair, i paid full price for these games. i do like them though and fun to play! graphics are awesome!!

    Maybe I'll buy Asphalt 6. The rest I either already have or don't have any interest in (like shooter games, not my style). Loved Eternal Legacy, though, and I paid the full $7 for it, so I definitely recommend that to anybody who likes RPG's.

    Let me know when lets golf is 99cents, with all these gameloft titles they always eventually drop to 99cents, which I have no complaints about :)

    Sigh; having bought each of these games at full price, I'm sad. Oh well - still its good to see. My only question would be when are we going to finally see new Gameloft games coming to the Playbook?

    Then again, it might be nice for Gameloft to actually acknowledge they publish games for the Playbook seeing how their website indicates that they do not.

    Just bought Lets Golf 2, it crashes on the dev build OS 2.0.0.7111. Hope they fix it for the full OS 2 release :-( Reading the reviews the Spiderman game also crashes it seems.

    FYi,

    Star Front: Collision has crappy sound/music on OS 2.0. It sounds like the audio is skipping. If you can play without sound, this is a non-issue I suppose.

    Eternal Legacy Won't even load with OS 2.0. After clicking the icon, it goes to a white screen for about 5 seconds, then closes.

    Asphalt 6, Modern Combat, NOVA2 all work fine.

    32gb PlayBook, 2.0.0.7111

    Thanks a lot Gameloft!
    I bought Modern Combat, Uno and N.O.V.A 2 for half price of one!
    Go made the same application an other game editors!
