The hugely impressive-looking Dungeon Defenders, which uses the powerful Unreal Engine to throw about its whizzy 3D effects, is set to take a bow on Android on December 23rd.

That’s just a week after its iPhone debut – an impressive turn-around time for such a technically ambitious game.

Dungeon Defenders mixes strategic play with RPG elements, all wrapped up in a bright fantasy world. Developer Trendy Entertainment is calling it a “tower defense online action-RPG,” which about sums it up.

After initial worries that only next year’s dual-core handsets would be supported, the developer has provided a full compatibility guideline that should set many fears at rest.

While some will no doubt be disappointed, I thing it’s a pretty reasonable list of stipulations given the nature of the game, which is only the second smartphone game to use the Unreal Engine after the astonishing Infinity Blade on iOS.

Here’s the compatibility list in full:

512 MB RAM
