Video: Starcraft on the Nokia N900

| January 10, 2010 | 9 Replies

I actually intended on uploading and posting a similar game related N900 video but I just saw Starcraft on the N900 and thought I’d post this first.

Look how well it seems to run on the N900 (we’ll have to see how it handles larger unit base/fighting off enemies), especially now being touch operated. I’m not sure if the keyboard has any additional functions in the gameplay (via N900)

I never got into the game myself. The word Zerg oddly comes to mind (ha, I know nothing else of Starcraft [1] ) but I know this still has a very loyal fanbase despite being 12 years old. (I remember my cousins back in the Philippines were absolute addicts to this). I wonder if this will work with multiplayer?

The game seems to use the full 800×480 resolution of the screen, looking mighty sharp. (You’ll definitely be needing a stylus for this).

Imagine playing this via TV out too 🙂

I wonder if the N900 would be able to handle another classic PC RTS, say, Total Annihilation?
