Frag to Your Heart’s Content with Kwaak3 – Quake 3 Arena for Android
Any self respectable gamer out there knows (or should know) every FPS game ever made. If that is the case, then the name Quake 3 Arena probably rings a bell or two. XDA member andershizzle brings the port of this wonderful game to our Android devices. The ports are truly well done and the game play is fast and smooth. Multi-touch is enabled in the latest revision of the game. But more importantly, the weapons are all out there for us to use: trusty shotgun, lightning gun, rail gun, and the adorable rocket launcher… and more, are all available for use, so that we don’t miss a thing from the computer version.
There is a demo version and a paid version, which unlocks the full game. One last thing, the apk alone is around 89 MB, so we recommend you to have plenty of space (and a fast device) to run this game.
I am currently working on a new project for touch-only devices like the Samsung Vibrant / Galaxy S / Nexus One: Quake 3 – Touch Arena.
My goal is to have an extremely playable copy of Quake 3 on our wonderful devices.

Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
