Every day, eager players turn towards us via Facebook, Reddit or our support system and ask for news on this matter.

In the meantime, we want to shed some light on the overall process and give you an idea of what it is like to bring a game as big and advanced as Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore to a platform as diverse and fragmented as Android. So I sat down with our project manager Clemens, who oversees the dedicated team working on the development of the Android version. He filled me in on the current state of affairs.

According to Clemens, the biggest challenge derives from the diversity on the Android platform with more than 15,000 Android devices, most of which have differing screen sizes, resolutions, chipsets, OS versions and capabilities. As Clemens puts it, “The sheer number of devices requires us to do quite a lot of adjustments”. Needless to say, we want Galaxy on Fire 3 - Manticore to look, play and feel as good on Android phones and tablets as it does on iPhones and iPads. And we want to offer the best-possible experience on the 2017 Android flagship devices that support the next-gen Vulkan graphics standard as well as on older devices utilizing the Open GL ES graphics standard.

Making sure GOF3 runs perfectly on as broad a range of Android devices as possible is not only a challenge for our developers and graphics programmers, but also for our QA testers. After all, they are the ones playing the game again and again on dozens of different smartphones and tablets, keeping an eye on every detail and ensuring everything runs as intended.”

If you need help with diversity of devices you can invite several Android users to test it with your team you will cover more ground and explain in the email about the criteria we need to pay attention at and then it's just the waiting game ;)

I cant even open the game in my device.

Hi ich habe schon galaxy on fire 2 sehr gerne gespielt und jetzt kann ich galaxy on fire 3 nicht spielen da mein Gerät angeblichen nocht geeignet ist allerdings habe ich Android 6.0.1 und einen 2,4 GHz Prozessor mit 3 GB RAM die so wie der aktuelle Stand eben ist Ich habe ein Sony Xperia Z3 und würde mich sehr freuen wenn es in Zukunft eine Möglichkeit gibt das ich das Spiel auch ohne neues Handy spielen kann

Das geht nicht weil das Spiel bis jetzt nur auf Handy mit so einem Vulcan Display dings läuft also bei mir gehts auch nicht. Wir beide müssen noch ein bisschen warten
