From the maker of DoomGLES comes Heretic GLES. Originally Heretic was created by Raven Software and eventually published by id Software back in 1994, this game was recently made available once again on Steam in 2007. Now it is 2012 and Kokak has brought his porting skills to the table once more to bring Heretic GLES to Android.
This is a direct port of the old school Heretic FPS game from back in the day. Just like Kokak's Doom port, Heretic GLES is probably the best looking port of the Heretic game on Android, not that there is a whole lot of ports of this game so far.
Heretic GLES Features:
- High resolutions (on tablets or highend phones) - Realtime dynamic lighting - Particles effects - 3D Monsters and objects (MD2) - Blood projections - Realistic water effect - Xperia Play gamepad buttons (touchpads not supported yet, probably later) - Keyboard support (USB, bluetooth, embedded) - Gamepads support (analog sticks support on Android >= 3.1) - Buttons mapping (Xperia Play / USB GamePads / Keyboard) - and much more
Just like DoomGLES, Heretic GLES comes with full support for not only the Xperia Play physical game controls but also keyboard support as well as gamepad support. So if you really wanted to fire up the old school gaming, you can hook up a keyboard or gamepad and enjoying like you used to back in the day. Some of the visuals even look better than the original game.
All you old school FPS gaming fans out there who have been enjoying the DoomGLES game now have another title to enjoy. You can nab Heretic GLES off of the Google Play store for $2.14 and get to shooting demons and other nasties. Stay tuned for our interview with Kokak who is quickly making a name for themselves with these ports for Android.
