Games :: How Come Emulator Games Look Better Than Android Games?
Jul 10, 2010
Seriously, emulation is not good for performance, but most roms running on gensoid look and play better that games developed for Android. Sonic 3 looks lovely, runs at 60fps and never stutters. It even seems to look higher rez than most Android apps.Android platformer games are nowhere near as good looking or smooth.So what the hell is going on? The hardware on top end Android phones (Desire, galaxy etc) is clearly capable.
Alright so lets say i have a game on the wii that i downloaded to my SD micro Card and I downloaded the Nes Emulator on my HTC Hero. (yes ik you have to have and adapter for the wii and then the smaller memory card for the phone) But would I be able to play that game for NES (that i downloaded from the wii) on my HTC Hero?
Browsing around the net at work today for Bluetooth Game Controllers, I came across a Mini Bluetooth Keyboard HERE - it's also selling on Ebay. It claims to be compatible with Android, but as we're all learning Android on one phone isn't the same as Android on another.
I'm wondering two things really: 1) Anyone know if it is actually compatible with Android and moreso if it's compatible with HTC Incredible and 2) If it is compatible, once connected, can you use it in conjunction with Game Emulators (I have the popular one for GBA) so that I could use the buttons on there to play the games.
It's the perfect size for a game controller (too bad they don't also make one for that purpose) and would be much better than the touch screen controls which impede on the game.
I am VERY new to the whole ANDROID scene but none the less stoked! I am not that tech savvy so I had a question about the PSX (sp) Emulator. If you download it how do you go about getting games on it. I would like to play the old FF and Resident Evil but I just don't know how to get the games on the Emulator. Where do I get the games from? Do you pay for them separately? Maybe a quick overview of the steps of how I would go from getting the emulator and adding games.
Apparently EA is bringing NFS to android! Engadget say it was demoed on the EVO yesterday. Are there any videos on the net of it? Also this might well mean we'll be seeing more high profile games coming to Android!
I really like the PC flash game called castle clout "http://www.maxgames.com/game/castle-clout.html" and the iphone game "angry birds" http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/angry-birds/id343200656?mt=8" basically a game that u launch objects into structures and try to destroy them.. i was hoping android would have such a game when i bought my new EVO
Is it possible to play palm pilot games on an android? I would assume it wouldn't be too difficult since they both use touch. I wouldn't care if it didn't fit my whole screen. There are some games that I really want to play again (Space Trader, Strategic Commander (does anyone know of another game like this)).
someone showed me their iphone I have to admit, my jaw dropped and I was drooling when I saw some of their games (i would that all games were freebie versions)
Question: why does the android platform not have games that are as good??
I remember seeing one games, I think it was called scooter - the whole damn screen moved as u mived the iphone left and right I only played for a minute - but it looked damn awesome why dont we have as good games! the persons phone: heck, it was only an iphone 3g - so u cant say it was better hardware or anything angry birds - I like - apart from that, I haven't seen any games I would even rate (ok, so angry birds is just worms game reinvented - but the subtle use of great graphics make it brilliant)
Important: I have an x10 mini pro which is STILL running android 1.6 - is this the reason why? are there better games on 2.1 and 2.2? or is it to do with the fact that there are better developers for the iphone?
Are there any multiplayer interactive games where someone with an Android phone can play with someone who has an iPhone? I'm looking for something like Words With Friends where two people who have iPhones can play scrabble together.
I only know 2 high quality 3D games using OpenGL ES I found on the market: - Hockey Nations Shoutout - Deadly Chambers, Anybody here have any suggestion / addition to that list ?? would like to install any awesome 3D games lol
When will we start seeing decent games being developed for the Android platform?If Worms or Angry birds ported over they could make a killing on the Android Market whilst still only charging a quid or two for the download
I'm very new to the android phone's (Just got my HTC hero three days ago.) and I was wondering, are there any good resident evil games for the htc Hero? I've seen some awesome one's on iphone and I used to have some fun Resi games on my old E71.
While I'm on the subject of gaming I have also downloaded the snesoid light and find the music and gaming a little sluggish. Is this just how it is or is there anything I can do to sort that? Would the full paid version work any better?
It appears Camel Games is now giving these three games away. I'm also left wondering what happened to their other games such as Super Tumble, as only the Lite version is left. Maybe that's going free, too? Hyper Jump is also missing from my latest search (whereas the Lite version is there). I'm somewhat in shock as these are some quality games!? Hopefully we'll find out the full story soon.
Can anyone give me any input on how practical it is to play games on a phone with no hard buttons? Examples would be the HTC Eris and the potential Bravo/Passion. I kind of don't want the Droid because of the keyboard, the D-Pad seems necessary to play games with...
since i bought the droid i've been hoping for some good iphone ports like cod waw zombies, gta china wars, simpsons arcade and one day ut3. does anyone know if they are going to be ported if so please post some links.
I liked Words with Friends when I had an iPod touch. I'm looking for something like it (Scrabble), but also anything else that's fun and you can play with your friends (poker, shooting, conquering, puzzles, etc). Preferably something where they can make a move, I receive a notification, and respond back at my convenience and vice versa, not where we both have to "be online at the same time". Oh, and free.
So we all know iPhone has better games than Android. And I'm love the "Fruit Ninja" game which is like the only one I enjoy playing on my Evo because it has good graphics and above all it's fun. I was wondering if there is anyway to get iPhone games on Android phones? Or if we can request someone to make some of the iPhone games for Android.
I'm looking for any Android games that I can play on my Evo (1 more week !) online with other random players. I tried searching appbrain, but I had a hard time finding any good ones. My GF has a scrabble-like game on her iPhone that sets her up with random players and its pretty fun. Anything of the sort ? (not necessarily scrabble, any online game would be great).
