    GamingCast (for Chromecast)'s review

    Published: 2014-05-12, by .

    Play retro games on your TV using your Android device as a gamepad

    • Original app concept
    • Six classic titles
    • Neat, polished and smooth
    • Catalog should keep growing
    • Only Pong has multiplayer support

    "Retro-gaming on a cutting-edge device"

    Eli Sherer's GamingCast turns your Chromecast into a videogame console and your Android device into a gamepad to control it. Doesn't it sound awesome?

    Download the app, pair it with your Chromecast dongle (must be connected to the same WiFi network) and be ready to have a blast. A selection of 6 classic games (at the time this review was written) including Snake, Pong, Xonix, Tetrominoes (tetris-like), Flapper (Angry Bird-like) and Breakout. Gamepad controls feel comfortable and responsive. Game's graphics are simple yet neat and polished. Transition from one game to the next is smooth. The experience of playing these classics from the couch is unbeatable.

    Only two catches worth to mention. First, despite the catalog keeps growing, it still falls short of games. Secondly, only one out of the six games has multiplayer support (Pong). That should be extended to the rest of titles.

    Regardless, GamingCast is a groundbreaking app that any Chromecast owner should consider installing on their Android devices.
