    works fine on my droid, around 20-30 fps only though. I'm not sure if this is fpu optimized, I got a higher framerate on my old N95 with fpu.

    trying out quake 3 now Downloads - kwaak3 - Project Hosting on Google Code
    you need to find a .pak file from somewhere for it though.

    Q2 is pretty hard to control IMO. Q3 is nearly impossible. I can't even beat Crash. They both seem to run well though.

    Why isn't this thread in Driod Games?

    Thanks to dtrb for the info on installing kwaak3, I had no issues loading that bad boy up.

    LOL, and I thought I sucked at first-person shooters before...

    But seriously, the rendering of the game is super nice and looks amazing. So glad we have developers out there helping us make the best use of our phones.
