I tried it years ago on my Galaxy 5. A rather small phone. I could even see it with my native eyesight back then.
I found a Kickstart somewhere in my backups and copied some games like Desert Strike, Swooper and Battle Chess.
Because all the controls were on screen it made it hard to use a virtual joy stick with. Even though my Galaxy had real buttons and a four directional cursor it just ignored them. Funny I thought, perfect to simulate a real joy stick, why isn't it used?
So I tried a few games. It's okay but extra "sprites" on screen just obfuscate the display. In my experience. Games may differ. I didn't dare try Workbench.
My conclusion? I will describe with a session of Desert Strike:
- Help! Help! Over here!
- Over here!
- What? Where!?
- Over here! Over here!
- Over where? Over where? I can't see a damn thing here!
You really need to try UAE4ARM. Supports AGA, CD32, Picasso and bsdsocket. I use it on my tiny SmartWatch Phablet (Neptune Pine) without issue, ;).
You can reconfigure size etc of onscreen buttons in SDL settings. You can also tell it to use your hardware keys. On my Nexus 7, I use Ipega game controller, so you can hide all onscreen stuff via emu menu.
