In the age of remasters and remakes, donations, loot boxes and online battles, ports from personal computers to a mobile platform look like aliens. Pure, untainted enthusiasm of the creators. Masters. Game building legends. We will only mention that we tried to find games that millions liked. No taste. Exceptionally fit for hundreds of hours of gameplay. Well, as a remark – in almost all games under the asterisk it is mentioned: “a device with a screen diagonal of 7 inches or more is recommended.”
So here are the 7 best games of PC ported to android.
A legendary game with the most unusual fate. Today there are about a dozen ports of this game on the mobile platform, but they are all amateur. There are projects for porting the Source engine to mobile platforms and all games based on it. But in this context, we are talking about an official port, carried out for the money of the company NVidia. The game has become an exclusive SHIELD Console, more precisely NVIDIA Tegra 4. But, since the devices on this chip had a cry, and the only one more or less famous was the SHIELDs console, the exclusivity became special.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
On the one hand, the classic port of the 2012 game. On the other hand, the game has been radically redesigned. Many elements have been changed. The main goal of the changes was to maximize the adaptation of the game to the touch screen. Aliens do not sleep. We are managing the development of a secret international organization to combat aliens. You know, in the mid-90s there was such a fun “Tamagotchi” – a virtual pet. So, XCOM is very reminiscent of him: walk the soldiers on a mission, treat them, dress them, distribute skills. And when someone is killed – sadness and tears for long hours.
Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear
A notable project that is a direct sequel to the original Baldur’s Gate. But the remarkable thing in this case is different. While the upper internet was discussing the failure of Mass Effect: Andromeda and the subsequent fall of BioWare, its subsidiary Beamdog ported a bunch of PC games to the mobile platform. But not only ported, but also finalized the original versions of the games, and also released a sequel. The fans are thrilled. Society is in the dark.

Heroes of Might & Magic III
Unreasonably humiliated and forgotten legendary project. Users of personal computers reacted extremely negatively to the re-release of the legendary game and pelted him with feces. But … there is one small point that was reflected even in the assessments of Metacritic. The PC version has a score of 4.7 points, while the score for the mobile platform has increased to 7.5 points. Huge difference for the same project on different platforms. And the essence is very simple – players have long forgotten what Hero 3 is. They have been living in modifications from fans for 10 years. At the same time, tablet users previously could not even dream of such a masterpiece with excellent hand-drawn drawing. The game is required to be installed on all devices by default.

Shadow Warrior Classic Redux
Classic 3D shooters. No donations. No loot boxes. True blood and level design. The dynamics and control inherent in PC shooters. A very interesting touch screen game experience. You can also connect a gamepad, which will completely transform the game into “The same taste, the same elephant.” But with a touchscreen, it somehow feels different. In a special way .
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
And again a game from BioWare. Best Star Wars Game. The best game from a well-known company. Best Game of 2003. HK-47. Bone bags. 10 out of 10 at your fingertips from most gaming titles in the world. Well-developed characters with their own backgrounds. The mobile version received optimized controls for the touch screen, updated graphics, and a taste of the very republic.
