ScummVM has also been ported to the Android platform.

Quick Start

You can install the latest stable version from the Android Market. You need both the main 'ScummVM' app and the plugins for the engines corresponding to the games you want to use.

The default input controls are touch-pad style (relative mouse movement). At the moment there is no configuration for this, sorry. As a temporary workaround, you can switch to direct touch mode by opening the Options dialog from the main menu, selecting the MIDI tab, toggling the "Mixed AdLib/MIDI mode" checkbox and restarting the application. See the 'Controls' section below for more details.

You might also want to disable the Fullscreen setting (if you don't want your games stretched to cover your whole screen), and to change the Graphics Mode to 'Linear filtering' if you want higher-quality (but slower) scaling.

Savegames are stored in the ScummVM directory on your SD card if possible.


5-Way navigation control / DPAD

   DPAD up/down/left/right: Mouse movement
   DPAD center: Left mouse button


   Movement: Mouse movement
   Click: Left mouse button


   The touchscreen can be used in two modes
   1) Direct mode
   2) Touchpad mode
   When in direct mode, the mouse cursor moves to the touched point on screen.
   In touchpad mode, the mouse cursor is independent of the touched point, it
   is moved relative to its current position - like on a touchpad.
   The port currently misses its own configuration dialog, the mode can
   be toggled with the "Mixed AdLib/MIDI mode" on the MIDI tab in ScummVM's
   own option dialog.
   Tap + movement: Mouse movement
   Tap without movement: Left mouse button click
