    Can you believe it?

    I read an article on www.Gamespy.com about a developer that has created a port of the hugely popular 1st person shooter game Quake for Pocket devices.

    http://www.gamespy.com/articles/april01/pocket/

    Almost unbelievable. The fact that these devices are capable of playing a game that my first computer had trouble playing.

    Thought you all might get a kick out of this story. There is also something about the new Linux-driven handheld the VR3:

    The port of Quake is only for the PocketPC's like the iPaq.

    But it does go to show you what is possible.

    There has been a 3D FPS available for the Palm for a while now: http://www.dreadling.com. I haven't played it but someday I will.

    I'd love to be able to play Quake on a handheld.

    Besides Dreadling there is another 3-d fps game called Ion's Quest 3D in development over at http://questions.hyperlink.cz/preview.html#IQ3d

    You might have to scroll up.

    I wasn't at all impressed with Dreadling when I tried it on my VDx, but once I got my Prism it became playable. Try the demo of Ion's Quest 3D, it looks like it will be pretty good when it is finished.

    What really needs to be added to these games is keyboard support. I don't think it is too hard to do, PPC Quake supports it.
