    Thought id say that i have been able to play Half Life 2 - Gary's Mod 10 through my iphone over WiFi. Bit harder than i thought although i did play.

    I used the VNC on the front. Did get bored after a while. Also the images are screen shots of the phone - whether you believe me or not is up to you:p

    are you able to use the accelerometer for controlling the character?

    He's using VNC, which means he's remotely playing it on his PC.

    I doubt the game is playable as the frame lag would drive you insane.

    I am running some IP cameras through my PC and accessing it using VNC, which is similar to what you are doing. The lag is quite significant, either it's the phone having too weak of graphic engine to render the images fast enough, or perhaps it's the program running it too slow. Either way, I get very choppy images when the same connection I use on PC is getting perfect streams.

    Yeah. You can use the motion sensors in the phone. You move the charecter with the mouse though. As the previous posted said, it was a bit laggy but you could still play - sort off - phone got dam hot as well
