How To Play Counter Strike 1.6 Game On Android

Counter Strike 1.6 is a First Person Shooter (FPS) multiplayer video game that was released for the Microsoft Windows in the year 2000. Counter Strike from Valve corporation has a 16 year old legacy which is the base for today's many FPS games. Counter Strike 1.6 was the last major update to this game. Due to compatibility issues this game may not run on newer PCs with advanced hardware. But you should be thankful to Alibek Omarev who ported this game to android phones and tablets.

You should know that this is not an official port and Valve corporation has no role in porting the game to android except developing the game 16 years ago. The developer has developed a client app that can be installed on your android phone. This app emulates the original Counter Strike 1.6 game on your phone with many on screen touch controls. The gameplay is exactly the same but currently there would be no real multiplayers. You will only be competing with AI bots.
