This is the Android port of id Software's id Tech 3 engine. It will let you play Quake 3 Arena and various mods on your phone.

You can now press Menu key in game and configure the controls. The default control is to use one joystick for both movement and shooting. Press the inner ring to move and strafe, and press outer ring to shoot. The phone will vibrate once you touch the outer ring so you know you are shooting.

If you are more comfortable to move with joystick and shoot with trigger, press menu key in game to switch to traditional control.


1)The game will download Quake 3 Arena Free Demo when you launch it for first time. This is a one time only download. Make sure you have turned WiFi on before you start the game, so you will not be billed any wireless data rates by your carrier.

2)To play the full game on phone, you need to own a retail copy of Quake 3. Otherwise you can continue playing the free demo or download mods;

3)To install the full retail game, copy all pk3 files from your Quake 3 Arena CD to /quake3/baseq3 on your phone's sd card;

3)Download the Quake3 1.32 point release and copy pak1-pak8.pk3 to quake3/baseq3 on your sd card.

    This should not have been released to the public just yet it is clearly a work in progress, but I hope the developer keeps up the great work..

    Looks great, but on my galaxy note 2 it is extremely laggy and aim and run will not work at the same time. Cod zombies is a better buy for this phone. If customer service happens upon this, a refund or credit for another game would be great

    Doesn't even work. Start screen crashes. Don't waste your money. I would give it zero stars if possible
