Quake 3 Being Played With A Zeemote Bluetooth Controller [Video]

That didn’t take long. It wasn’t long ago that many of you were clamoring to play games on your phones using a bluetooth controller. It also wasn’t long ago that we learned the Zeemote would be getting an Android SDK. The usual daydreaming sessions commenced after that, and now the first fruits have emerged from that much appreciated labor.

Thanks to the SDK adding functionality of the Zeemote with Android, you can now play several games using the wireless remote. This is a dream come true for some of you who longed to play Kwaak3 on their devices without the added cumbersome that comes with trying to use the phone’s hardware (especially QWERTY-less phones such as the Nexus One). Do you want one of these yet? Be sure to check out more videos of the Zeemote in action on Android here.

    where can I get quake 3 at?!

    Always nice to see new input devices working with android, but coming from someone who used to play quake3 competitively, this control setup blows for most any first person shooter. The trackball control demonstrated in this posting is 100x better:

    Personally, I’d rather use a wii controller for just about everything else:

    WOW SO WORTH IT!

    NOT

    why is this retarted game so popular! i really don’t get it, just because it is a first for some serious 3d FPS, doesn’t make it good…

    @Covert …..what is wrong with you?!?!

  • jason

    @watermonkey

    “retarted”

  • Legion

    You should really credit the Developer of the app that made that possible. The name of the app is gamepro. This has actually been around for a while before the sdk was released.

    I am really impressed with this. Hopefully we’ll see some great harware add ons down the track. (no offence Zeemote). Anyone seen a bluetooth Tekken game pad ?

    Ill try zeemote later sounds interesting. as for the trackball : its nice for FPS but for other games it isnt. and the nexus doesnt have enaugh keys for good playing.

    – jump
    – change weapon
    – crouch
    – activate
    – fire
    – move forward
    – move backward
    – strafe left
    – strafe right

    and so on. just not enaugh hardware keys for real playing. a mix of qwertz and trackball that would be genius in a device.
