A translucent spot that operates as a thumbstick along with buttons for spells allow the game to be playable while it streams from an Adrenalin Host Server from approximately 80 kilometers away. The HTC Desire used is connected to a home network with speeds of 2Mbps down / 2Mbps up. While this Alpha version does show some stuttering in intense spots, it's still a step in pushing mobile gaming to another level. Check out the video demo after the break.
