NOTE: This does require that you purchase the game on the market first

1. Install Chrome and get the extension APK Downloader found here
http://codekiem.com/2012/02/24/apk-downloader/

2. Transfer APK to phone

3. Install and open app and it should recognize the device and download required files

Will add more games to the list as tested

Tested on:
Asphalt 6 Adrenaline HD

Not Working:
Backstab HD

The method mentioned above works for some is because those apps actually do work for the Vivid, just that the developer may have not updated the compatibility list. But if the app is actually not compatible, then there really isn't any way to make it happen besides sending a request to app developer for adding support.

Its asphalt 6 which I thought this extension worked for. If not I shall wait for it to become compatible.

Yeah I tried it on Asphalt and it did work. This is the only work around I know of that can get you the official working game legitimately.

Hey guys, just a little input. I haven't tried any of my gameloft games on the Vivid, I did notice they didn't show up in the market. I had the same issue with my HTC flyer tablet. All you have to do is e-mail Gameloft and tell them the issue and they'll e-mail you a direct download link to the game.

I got Gameloft to email me a "working" version of asphalt 6. It plays fine and runs fluid. Problem is, there is some horrible graphic glitches. Instead of rendering smoke, light beams or pretty much anything translucent, it renders the bounding box. On a few tracks where there is fog or sun burst, the game is nearly unplayable.
