Glu Mobile's (GLUU) Deer Hunter 2014 and Eternity Warrior 2 are already available on Google's new Android TV platform. Each title supports 1080p gameplay on TV sets.

Android TV, revealed yesterday at Google I/O, supports controller-based gaming to go with a variety of media options. Sony, Philips, and Sharp have promised to offer Android TV sets in 2015, and Razer and Asus promise to offer set-tops. Initial volumes could be limited, particularly compared with smartphone shipments.

Amazon included gaming support within its recently-launched Fire TV set-top, and Apple is expected to do so in its next-gen Apple TV. Each platform is hoping to appeal casual gamers by offering cheap hardware that can leverage giant mobile gaming ecosystems.

Glu is at its highest levels since early April.

Update: A strong reception for the recently-launched Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is helping Glu rally.
