Yes, this is the official release.

ah, i got the demo, seems nice, though has a few quite annoying things (smartphone android S3) which make the game rather annoying to play:

1. the controls arent smooth, moving has a slight delay which makes it annoying to play, its probably the player gliding, which is nice in PC, but annoying with touch control since the movement is more precise.

2. the yellow drag button in menus. cant we simply click the buttons by our selves?

3. end game button does not quit the game properly, freezes ingame and needs you to abort mission.

Well, that's Darkplaces engine on mobile platform for you :) It can't get any better, and since programmer who ported it to Android is gone, there will be no patches coming. Plus Android is such a crappy platform business wise (unless the game is f2p) that I don't think porting SSBR to Android was worth the effort :/

Btw, touch controls don't provide more precise movement because there is huge hardware lag. he only precise controls are keyboard + mouse, on PC.

dont buy...there is no mutiplayer and it is a very limited campaign.. ps.. I run Bluestacks pc andriod emulater... would that help ya's with the hardware poblem?

it killed a lot of lag for .. my galaxy s5 I guess wasn't good enough hardware wise.

but me i7 with 16gigs o ram... bit of overkill never hurts ?

Android is another platform. Of course playing on PC via emulator would give you impression that it's unworthy purchase, comparing to SS:BR. However, it was made for Android and to be played on Android. Not a fair comparison.

Like I mentioned before, the engine is no good for mobile platforms. Hopefully one day it can be ported to Unreal Engine 4 to run well on everything :)
