Android Wear Running Half-Life


It’s not quite “Half-Life 3 confirmed”, but one inventive tinkerer has managed to get the original Half-Life running on Android. Forget tablets and smartphones though — YouTuber Dave Bennett has managed to ‘port’ Valve’s genre-defining shooter to an Android Wear smartwatch. It’s far from feature complete, but just getting the classic game operating on such a tiny touchscreen device is a minor miracle. A tap of the finger replaces mouselook, swinging the view around unlikely hero Gordon Freeman’s initial descent into Black Mesa, and overall performance wasn’t too shabby either. Bennett reports frame rates of up to 30fps, too — though also as low as a meagre 2fps.
