Famed iPhone RPG Zenonia hits Android, for $5.99 and 1.6 phones and above

Zenonia, the mobile role-playing game which has been doing superb business on iPhone since the middle of last year, has finally made its trip to Android – a fact that will help no end in boosting the rather low profile of gaming on Google’s format.

Here are a couple of images, courtesy of developer Gamevil. We’re excited because they’re LANDSCAPE:

Sadly, Zenonia requires Android 1.6 and above in order to run – a fact that’s triggering a moderate amount of user confusion over on Twitter at the moment. So remember, the game won’t show up on your phone’s Android Market listings if you’re not running 1.6 or above.

Here’s the full press release, for completion and extra FACTS:

  1. I’ve been following this since it was announced at the beginning of the month that this was coming and the moment it came out I snagged a copy of this game and have been loving it since then. I wasn’t surprised it was for android 1.6+ at all and hopefully manufacturers will stop releasing phones with 1.5 of them at some point in our life time.

    A lot of people are also complaining it does support multitouch (lol?) or physical keyboard controls which I think should have been included in the game, the physical keyboard part that is.
