Four new titles have just been added to the Nvidia SHIELD Android TV games roster. Nvidia made the announcement last week.

First up is "Half-Life 2: Episode 2," a followup to fan favorite "Half Life 2." Just like other games in the series, the port is exclusive to SHIELD devices. "Despite the game being released originally released in 2007, it is still very fun to play for those that already have done so and a worthy pick-up for those that have not yet tried playing the game," Tech Times wrote.

Next is physics-based platform game "QUBE: Director's Cut." Players who enjoyed "Portal" should check out Trendy Entertainment's puzzle game. Special gloves allow players to manipulate the cube-filled environment to solve a host of puzzles.

If exploration is your cup of tea, don't miss out on "Never Alone." Before coming to life as an Nvidia SHIELD Android TV port, the game first came out for the PC where it received critical acclaim. Made in collaboration with the Iñupiaq people of Alaska whose stories form the basis of the game, the platformer has players control a child and a fox as they make their way across the frozen landscape. It can be played via solo or local co-op using two controllers.

Lastly, "Funk of Titans" is a platformer that puts a twist to Greek mythology. "You are playing as Perseus, although that's just the window dressing for a pretty standard platformer," Android Community wrote.

Nvidia said there are more titles to come including "Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!" set for a summer release date. As of now, there are more than 100 games available via the SHIELD Hub app and more than 200 games via Google Play.

The Nvidia SHIELD Android TV is now available with the 16GB standard model selling for $199 and the 500GB Pro model selling for $299.99. Both models get a SHIELD controller for the price.
