HL2 on Nvidia shield today!
Blown away by this, I was expecting portal, but they released both ported!

So... where's all the hype? HL2 is out for Android! Aside from Shield, you can also play it on any device with Android 4.3+ and Tegra 4.

Also, I have question - does anybody here have rooted Shield or Tegra 4 device? HL2 stores configs and saves in /data which is tricky to modify without root access. If we can edit the configs we can probably open the console.

No you can't.

The game is strictly for the Shield.

Do research yo.

I'd have to agree with this just from playing it on the shield, it has no touch controls, and it only works with the shield's own gamepad, even plugging a moga or w/e into a shield and I'd guess also tegra 4 phone wont work. Kinda sucks you cant run hl2 projected to a tv in the shield's closed lid console mode (covers the joysticks and face buttons), but w/e it's still a really solid port.

You can't buy it in Google Play for other Tegra 4-devices, that's all. HL2 can run on any device with Tegra 4, only requires gamepad(like Xbox 360 controller).

I did research yo. Just because you can't buy it for non-Shield devices doesn't mean it doesn't work on them. This game works on devices with Android 4.3+ and Tegra 4, although it requires XInput controller.

Does it work with blutooth keyboards?

Playing this game on anything less than a 24" monitor would be like swimming in an inflatable kiddie pool...

5 inches of 720p held 4-8 inches from the face doesnt look that bad. But I agree it's best on pc.
now for ios

... maybe if the next iphone has a tegra 4... otherwise this port is probably exclusive. pretty sure it was done to promote the shield and tegra 4's power. A6 (iphone 5) cpu is way underpowered compared to the tegra 4. keep in mind, valve didn't port it, nvidia/nvidia tegra services did it by liscensing it from valve. and i get 10-20fps on average so anything lower than a tegra4/snapdragon would be out of the question in my mind.
