      Yeah, if only. This would be fun to play on the droid that I’ll be buying shortly.

    If only Motorola would hurry up and update the CLIQ (or Google/HTC would update the Ion).

      I’ll take a stab in the dark here, but gather it has more to do with screen resolution/density issues and pre-rendered asset sizes plus scene interactions with NPCs as to why it is supported only on the Droid & N1. IE since it’s a static screen with just some sprites running around. I dunno about the superb animations of enemy troops claim as it’s a bit “chunky”.

      Pretty cool to see this though and it reminds me of Cabal which was a favorite of mine in times of yore.
