DISCLAIMER: THIS TUTORIAL IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY! THE MXQ PROJECT AND IT’S AUTHORS DO NOT CONDONE PIRACY AND THIS GUIDE ASSUMES YOU HAVE ALREADY OBTAINED A LEGITIMATE COPY OF THE TITLE IN QUESTION. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE PROCEDURE BUT THE MXQ PROJECT WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAULTS, ERRORS ETC. THAT MAY OCCUR DURING THE PROCESS!

 

The video game Half-Life was originally released on November 19th 1998 to universal acclaim. It was a highly ambitious title with an engaging story, highly detailed level design, an immersive combat system and seamless gameplay throughout. It has spawned a direct sequel. Half-Life 2, an additional two-part,  episodic adventure as well as numerous unofficial spin-offs, tie-in media and ports. So it’s no wonder then, that many often consider Half-Life as one of the greatest video games of all time.

 

In today’s tutorial, I’ll be guiding you through the steps in order to get this game up and running on almost any Android device, including older hardware such as the MXQ box. It requires a small amount of set up but don’t be too worried, it’s a very simple process and you should be up and running in no time.

 

This method has been around for a few years now but recently I decided to test it on older TV box hardware and I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to install this using an MXQ S805 TV box and play seamlessly in full 1080p HD (Resolutions can actually go higher as well).

 

It also supports controller inputs and controls are easily mapped to an Xbox 360 controller or such like, it also accepts keyboard and mouse for those of you who wish to play the game as originally intended, but, on top of all that it even has fully customisable touch controls for users who wish to play on a tablet or smart phone!

 


THINGS YOU WILL NEED:

 

  • An Android device

  • A copy of Half-Life somewhere on your Computer

  • Your PC/Laptop

  • Means of copying files to your device

 

So without further ado, just hit play on the video tutorial below and you will be up and running in no time!
