  • Call to Power 2 migrating to smartphones?

    So I've been waiting for smartphones to evolve enough so that I can actually start playing older games that I never really had the time to play on my mobile phone. We're seeing decent RAM, decent graphics chips and decent screen resolutions to wonder how far away are from actually porting full Windows games to the iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile.
    Especially now that the iPhone 4 has a very good screen resolution compared to the competition, I think we're headed in a good direction.

    Am I the only one who believes that a proper CtP2 bug-free migration would actually be worthy of money, and users paying for it? And even Play By Email (PBEM) on your mobile phone?

    So, tell me, why not have CtP2 on our Smartphones?

    Well, having already ported it to Linux I guess getting it working on an Android would be plausible. iPhone would be much harder. Of course, only Activision could get people to pay for it - they still own the rights to the game.

    If you want it to happen, feel free to go ahead and start porting!

      Sorry J, my programming knowledge is for an almost-forgotten Visual Basic 6.

      I just think a lot more could be done to get great old games on people's smartphones. CtP2 came to mind.

        Great minds think alike

        It would be awesome to see this ported to a Tegra 2 Android based tablet.

          Did this ever get ported? If so can someone provide a link?

          Thanks
