starcraft-remastered

StarCraft: Remastered had been released to the public earlier today and it costs $14.99 on Battle.net. As a reminder, the legacy StarCraft: Brood War had become free for everybody since patch 1.18 came out in April this year. So if you don’t feel like buying SC:R, you can still play the original SC — which by the way, are multiplayer compatible with each other!

An app for Android, called Winulator by Dan Aloni software, is being developed that lets users run Windows EXE/DLL files on ARM devices. So far, this app supports one game: Caesar III. StarCraft: Brood War patch v1.16.1 is currently in working progress and will be the next game to be supported. You can watch a short preview of the developer testing StarCraft on a tablet with full touch controls in the video below.

Winulator beta is available free in the Google Play Store, but note that StarCraft isn’t compatible yet. To support the developer, you can buy the paid version of Winulator.
