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.

Google released an entertaining StarCraft-related easter egg today, for reasons unknown yet. To see it, just go to google.com and search “zerg rush”. Your search results will be attacked by a bunch of “zerglings” which will group up at the end to spell out GG.
Update: There are several sites now saying that a Google spokesperson gave out this quote:
“For n00bs who aren’t as familiar with real-time strategy games, there’s been a zerg rush on your search results page. Because there should always be time to practice your gaming skills, click on the zerg units to defend the results page and try not to get pwned. Then you can share you APM score on Google+. GLHF!”
So apparently you can kill those “zerglings” by clicking on them to get a high score and post on Google+. I read somewhere that this whole thing might have been created to be a promotion for Google+. Anyway, I think it’s pretty cool that Google made something for us StarCraft fans.

Apparently, icyHell and a whole bunch of other customers’ websites from DreamHost (my web hosting company) were hacked. The hack injected every PHP file with a base 64-encoded code that redirected all visitors to a different website. I have just finished re-uploading a brand new copy of this website to the server. If there is anything that isn’t working, please post about it in the comments! Thank you.

HuskyStarcraft has posted a video up showing that it is possible to stack Siege Tanks, as well as other units like Thors, by dropping them in tight spaces with Medivacs. This was originally discovered by DerNalia, who was a victim of this attack in a game, and had posted a screenshot of it on the reddit StarCraft forums. Blizzard will likely fix this bug in an upcoming patch, as they have done so with these types of exploits in Brood War.
HuskyStarcraft has also made a 2nd video showing tank-stacking with buildings here.
Big update: HuskyStarcraft has posted a 3rd video of the same bug, but this time some people have figured out how to get the tanks to fall off the edge of the cliff and move around at the bottom of the map! Check out the exploit in the video below:

I just realized that I haven’t uploaded Monikon’s Mini StarCraft to icyHell yet. In the previous posts about this, I just linked to the creator’s webpage. However, that website is gone now, thus I will host the file here for everyone to download.
For those who don’t know about this yet, this is a very small version of StarCraft Brood War that can be put in your USB drive so you can take StarCraft wherever you go! You can even play on Battle.net if you use a valid CD-key.
