While there is the query of whether or not FPS games are any good on mobile devices, the reality is that there are a decent amount of them available. It\’s really a query about the controls, whether touchscreen is good to use for the genre upon mobile. Some people swear by using controllers while others are just fine with touchscreen controls. Either way it looks like we may be getting a ported version of Half-Life Or Black Mesa on Android quickly.
As far as we know, this is not a part of the official Black Mesa project which is a re-creation of the Half-Life world using the Source engine from Half-Life 2. In one instance this developer is calling the game Half-Life Mobile and in the other it is Black Mesa: Mobile which is why we\’re just calling this a port of Half-Life/Black Mesa in order to mobile.
There isn\’t a good deal of details regarding this mobile version of Half-Life however from what we\’ve dug up, farmville will not be made using the Source engine. Instead, from what we\’ve read anyways, this is made using Unity3D. The whole project also raises questions regarding the legal aspects of this whole deal but since the game is being made using Unity3D as well as, as far as we know, there is none of the actual mission\’s data included, there shouldn\’t be a problem with this particular except for possibly the title itself.
While we try in order to dig up more information in regards to this project and how much along it is, you should check out a preview associated with Half-Life Mobile in the video over. No word if any sort of multiplayer will come with this game just yet.
