Counter-Strike 1.6 Now Playable on Android
There is no gamer on this planet that has not been introduced to that staple of first-person shooters (FPS), Counter-Strike. It's considered as a game that defined an era of FPS titles, competitive multiplayer, and endless hours being spent in cybercafés.
Of the many mods, updates and tweaks, the version that is best remembered by its fans is the Counter-Strike 1.6 build. To that end, one happy coder (and a Counter-Strike enthusiasts, obviously) and app developer took it upon himself to make Counter-Strike 1.6 playable on the Android.
Just to be clear, the port of the game isn't a mobile-friendly version made and released by Valve, the game's publisher and developer. It is a full PC version of the game, and it's simply ported over to run on Android OS. Due to that, all the controls are on screen, which frankly, would make for a rather awkward experience.
As it stands, the port still has a few issues that need to be ironed out, and reports at the time of writing suggest that the game still suffers from the occasional stutter, as well as some intermittent lag.
Also, the game isn't officially available on Google Play, so in order to play it, you'll have to download the game via a thirdparty app called Xash 3D Android. It's easily found on GitHub, and can be found through a simple Google search, if you're not quite sure about it. Also, just to play safe, you're going to want to try this on a fairly powerful Android device.
