I was able to install the game to my Nexus 5X and was able to play it without too many problems. The game ran smoothly and if I had a better controller solution it would have been a lot more enjoyable. The game was made for a computer with a mouse and a keyboard so the controls naturally weren’t the same as they were for the original platform. It took some getting used to but once I got the hang of it I was able to manage. Even though I “managed” it was still pretty rough and I died more often than not.
It was a fun proof of concept that shows that our mobile devices have a lot more potential than just Angry Birds and Temple Run style games that the Play Store is now flooded with. I am excited to see what other games can be ported over and can’t wait to see more work like this! My fingers are crossed for the days when I can play Warcraft on my Android devices!
