Let's Play Starcraft On The iPad!

Illustration for article titled Lets Play Starcraft On The iPad!

Starcraft is on the PC. It's also on the Mac. And Nintendo 64. And that's it. So how is somebody playing the strategy hit on a touch-screen Apple iPad?

It's not through magic, nor is this a bootleg copy of the game. It's actually a program made by a company called iSwifter, who normally stream simple Flash games to handheld devices through the "cloud", but who in this case have made an exception and got a custom version of Starcraft running instead.

Some controls are accessed via the "buttons" along the side of the screen, while others are done by using more iPad-like gestures like pinching and dragging on the game screen itself.
