    Britain? Or some ancient land before the Roman invasion in c. 40AD?

    Desire does not have a hardware keyboard...I don't think you can actually move in the game:


    • Movement: a/s/w/d, up/down arrows
    • Look: touch screen, trackball and left/right arrows

    That could be a noticeable issue.

    I've not installed it yet, but looks like they later got it working on non-keyboard devices.
    Article here: Quake 3 Finally Ported To The Nexus One | Android Phone Fans inc youtube vid of it working on a Nexus one (using the volume rocker for forward and jump)

    They say it's quite hard to play using trackball and volume rocker. Even so...we don't have a trackball and our optical trackpad it's a pain to use even for less demanding situations....
