    Okay, first off. Think of the controls. What would they look like and how much of the screen would they take up? Of course as in almost every game you can change the size of the controls, but the controls could still block something you are trying to shoot. If you want, post your opinions here :up:

    I don't know a whole lot about processors, so what I'm saying should be taken with a whole salt lick, but I don't think an iPhone 7 would be able to run Starbound.

    I can't even fathom this game on mobile. Not even taking system requirements into account, zoom-level-to-screen-size issues alone would seem insurmountable, given the level of precision you'd need for controls. It'd be AWFUL for builders.

    I agree, it would also run horribly on phones and stuff like that.

    the performanc of the game is so bad, I doubt it can run properly on any mobile.

    I kind of agree with everyone else in that this doesn't sound especially doable. But then, I think Minecraft and Terraria are unplayable on mobile, so perhaps listen not to me.

    Why not just have bluetooth controller support?

    Starbound in mobile? I think the only thing doable is shooting and slashing enemies. Building seems to be a horrible things to do. Maybe Starbound in mobile will become a 2D shooting game.

    First.,to play Starbound on mobile, you need a good mobile. Wery good mobile.
    Second, you need a 4-5 GB of free space, to download SB.
    Three, Chucklefish need a delete mass of the SB's content, to port his.

    Yeah, for sure. Starbound is laggy in PC. I can't imagine if it is in mobile.

    Bluetooth controllers get pretty expensive.
