The free Epic Citadel app is the Unreal Engine 3-powered way to determine how game-capable your mobile hardware is, so Intel decided to use it to demonstrate the power of the Clover Trail+ Atom Z2580, its first dual-core smartphone system-on-a-chip.
Back in 2010, Epic Games released an Unreal Engine 3 tech demo for the iPhone and iPad that opened gamers' eyes to the potential for console-quality gaming on Apple's portable devices. Now it's out for Android, and it's prettier (and more useful) than ever.

The creators of the Unreal Engine and the games that run on it have brought their tech to the iPhone. Epic Games is now letting iPhone owners see how well their engine works with a free demo, Epic Citadel.
