Playing PC games on an iPad
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2013, 3:08 am
I've been playing Cardhunter a lot this weekend. With its turn-based gameplay and not too demanding graphics I couldn't help but think that this would be a great game to play on an iPad. Only that Cardhunter runs in Flash, and the iPad doesn't run Flash natively. There are Flash browser apps, but all that I ever tried either worked not at all with newer games, or were extremely slow and buggy.

But then I stumbled upon a different suggestion on the Cardhunter forums: Splashtop, a program that you install on both your PC and your iPad and which then enables you to control your computer with your tablet. the $5 price tag appeared reasonable, and so I tried it out. And it works like a charm! It lowers the resolution of your screen to that of the iPad, and then you can play PC games on your mobile device. Of course that only works really well with games that are controlled mostly with a mouse, unless you use a Bluetooth keyboard for your iPad. But for things like Flash games it is a very good solution.
