As Android gaming, as well as the mobile gaming industry as a whole, is currently slowly (but surely) moving away from casual games and on to a more hardcore and complete gaming experience, we’re bound to witness the appearance of more and more mobile games that simulate PC gaming. In this context I’m here to introduce you to Critical Strike Portable, a recently launched Android/iOS game that basically emulates one of the most popular games ever launched, Counter Strike.
The only major difference between Counter Strike and Critical Strike Portable is that the latter doesn’t use the Half-Life engine, being based on the Unity engine instead. This obviously translates into some changes to the graphics, although as a personal note, I find Critical Strike to be better looking than its PC counterpart. The touch controls are touted as “smooth and responsive” by the developers, something that resonates with a lot of the user feedback.
If you’re interested, why not head on the official Google Play store link and give it a go for yourself. It literally won’t cost you anything, as Critical Strike Portable is completely free.
P.S. Since we’re on the topic of hardcore mobile gaming, fans of Blizzard’s highly addictive World of Warcraft MMORPG might be interested to learn an iOS version of the game is being considered by the developer, although the possibility of it reaching Android devices was not no yet acknowledged officially. We’re keeping our hopes up and our eyes open, so we’ll let you know as soon as more info surfaces.
