    Starcraft is probably one of the greatest games i have ever had the liberty of playing. even a primitively terrible port of the game would make me happy. If crazy taxi is .... sort of playable on the gba emulator then starcraft shouldn't be a crazy out of this world idea would it?

    Tap or tap drag - Left click action
    tap hold - Right click action
    two fingers - some adaptation for the arrow keys for maneuvering around.

    Then a thin bar on the side that would work as the shortcut keys to carry out building of stuff...
    idk ..... probably impossibly impractical but still.... its starcraft.

    I don't think anyone will develop that.. It'll be too laggy =\ ...And hard to do

    I feel you brother Starcraft needs to be ported it would take too many man hours to do so but if someone would make a Nintendo 64 emulator it would be easy considering blizzard already ported the game to the system

    this will not happen. Evrn if someone managed to make it, it would be so crappy to play and not worth it


    There is also a thread about starcraft on the ipod touch

    I actually think it is quite possible. In comparison to the pc version of Starcraft sure, you can say it's impossible because of the graphics and gameplay etc. But I saw Starcraft on cell phones and you don't need to have a smart phone to play it. Just basically any new phone would work if it has Java, which I am pretty sure it does. I also think that the iPod Touch/iPhone hardware is quite a bit more powerful than a lot of cellphones. And instead of using buttons you can use your finger. I think that it is a good idea and unlike TheRapture said I am quite sure it's possible. It's just an idea for Blizzard to consider. No one here I am almost a 100% sure can remake the game for the iPod or make an emulator that will support it. But it is definately an interesting idea and not completely impossible.
