Starcraft On Your iPad

December 1, 2010, By Nicholas Davis

StarCraft for mobile devices have been a dream for any RTS fan. Weve seen it on PC’s, Mac’s, and even the N64. Now it’s finally on the iPad. Unofficially of course.

iSwifter is an Apple app that brings simple flash games to mobile hand-held devices. These developers have gotten their hands on a custom StarCraft. Its not a bootleg version. Its the real deal. Some of the actions are done with the buttons on the side of the screen and others are done with iPad gestures such as pinch, drag, swipe, and other simple controls. There is some control lag but that is understandable. It’s still amazing to know that it can be played on mobile devices.

I don’t expect iSwifter to be on the Apple marketplace for long after this. Hopefully Blizzard will finally see that people still love StarCraft and will release it on mobile devices. You can watch the video HERE.
