The iPhone port of multiplayer first person shooter game Quake 3 Arena, is tweaked to work on iPad’s native resolution of 1024×768! Checkout the screenshot!

DIY Quake 3 Arena on iPad Proof of Concept

The high resolution Q3 Arena proof of concept, by modmyi forum user Sonikku, requires jailbreak (not in App Store). The DIY Quake 3 Arena on iPad instructions are easy:

  • Get iPhone Quake 3 port
  • SSH into the iPhone, change some text in q3config.cfg, save
  • install Full Force (Cydia), and boom, Quake 3 on iPad

The game itself looks great, but the controls are not optimized for an iPad at this time. I wonder if people figured out how to rocket jump on it yet?

For those who want a multiplayer iPad shooter that’s more than a proof of concept, there is the Halo-like Nova HD [itunes link], a very well made iPad optimized FPS, with both single player missions and multiplayer gaming.

    ID needs to bring Q3 out as an official app ASAP! I love what they did for DOOM and would think John Carmack could get Q3 to do wonders on the iPad.

    I can dream…
