Finished my DIY android gamepad, reccomend me some gamepad-supported games?
So I finally finished DIY building my very own GameHanger (trademarked, by me
) for my Samsung Galaxy S3. It consists of:
- An original Xbox controller, with xbox cable replaced with a very short USB connector
- A rubber/plastic-coated coat hanger
- A USB-OTG cable
- Two nuts and bolts to hold the two together
It works great! Super easy to get my phone in and out, yet it can hold my phone while held upside down. And man, it's a blast playing on this thing. It's so much more fun playing shooters with a proper analog stick controller (even if it is the crappy old original Xbox controller that makes my right hand cramp up). I swear it feels like cheating when I play online shooters like SG: Deadzone. I feel like I have the graphics power of an Xbox 360 in my pocket. Some of these games look just as good, if not better, than games on the 360 on an HDTV. And they're both at 720p!
So far, the gamepad-supported games I'm loving on my S3 are Dead Trigger, Dead Trigger 2, SG: Deadzone, and the SuperGNES snes emulator.
These games support gamepads out of the box, with a dialog to map each individual axis and button.
I've also tried NOVA 3
, but the framerate was pretty crappy on my S3. Seems like a bleeding edge 2012 phone just isn't up to the task to play a 2012 game. (and if anyone knows how to measure framerate in game like FRAPS, let me know!)
So please recommend me some more gamepad-supported games!
Whether they are first person shooters or platformers or whatever, I just want to get the most out of my new GameHanger! But I'm not going to try and use a touch screen emulator IME on a non-gamepad-supported game.
DISCLAIMER: My post may be a repeat of a previously asked question. Please donít dismiss my question and tell me to "use the search". Sure, I may be able to find the answer by searching for it, digging thru dozens of locked threads, digging through pages of posts to find the one single answer I need...
But I have faith that there will be one decent human who is willing to save me the time of searching, and answer my repeat question.
