The lights are on
Fulfilling its promise to bring Shadowrun to mobile devices, Harebrained Schemes has announced the title's availability on iOS and Android tablets. The features are slightly slimmed from the Steam release, but that's to be expected.
The tablet iteration of the title does not include the editor, and it will not have access to the pool of content created by users. Instead, Harebrained Schemes plans to release the best of the community's efforts for iOS and Android.
Shadowrun Returns will set you back $9.99, and on iOS, it only takes up a slim 351 MB. You can read our review of the PC version.
Our TakeI was afraid that Shadowrun Returns would be a gargantuan app and it would cost in the neighborhood of $20. Not only is this a great experience, but it should fit within your budget (and your potentially limited storage space).

This was a fun throwback, but not sure how it'll translate to Tablets. It's still an enjoyable experience on PC!
i would think of hopping on this ( eventually) since i haven't gotten the pc version yet but .....i dropped my poor ipad on a driveway screen first .....my poor ipad
This is a good reason to have a tablet. If they keep releasing games like this for the mobile phones,mobile gaming would cement itself as a legitimate gaming competitor.
Has anyone played this on a tablet yet? Really excited about this release
I guess that means the extra $10 we spend on PC is for the editor, because that's half off the PC price. Still admittedly surprised this came out on PC first though -- it's built from the ground up for iOS, after having spent 16+ hours playing it.
Yes, this is what I have been waiting for!!! Day 1 baby!
If only my phone could play this game without lag.
