Stargate Command App Now on Android

Sunday - January 13, 2013
Category: PRODUCTS | Tags: , ,

Android users, rejoice! Arkalis Interactive has heard your cries.

The new Stargate mobile app Stargate Command is now available on the Android platform, after launching exclusively on iOS earlier this year.

The base app allows users to explore the halls of Stargate Command, look at art, and knock golf balls through the Stargate (a la “Window of Opportunity”). But more importantly, it’s a baseline for future content expansions — which is keeping the Andorra-based studio busy.

The first big add-on is the hands-on combat game “Teal’c’s Revenge” (review), which is available now as an in-app purchase for $1.99. (Watch the trailer below.)

Download Stargate Command for free for your Android device now from Google Play. The app will also be available on the Amazon Appstore in the next week or two.

UPDATE: If you’ve had trouble installing the app on your Android device, give it another try. Based on your feedback in the comments thread the publisher has updated the app to make sure it is fully compatible with more devices.

Darren created GateWorld in 1999, and today is the owner and managing editor. He lives in the Seattle area with his wife and three children.

  • Awesome… with the project complete, now he can turn his attention to Windows Phone! :)

  • Darren, I can’t find Stargate Command or Arkalis-Interactive from either my Galaxy S or my ASUS TF101 when I search for them. The link here takes me to the app store page but tells me “Your device isn’t compatable with this version”. What kind of device do I need???

  • Darren

    Sorry, all — we don’t have any details on specific device compatibility or incompatibility. Please do post your device here if you get it working, or if you can’t get it working.

    I’ll try it out on my Kindle Fire HD when it turns up in the Amazon store …

  • Says not compatible with my Galaxy SII(T-mobile USA version) and my ASUS TF-201.

    Has anyone actually gotten it to work? I think I have a hack that will make it download on any device that’s been rooted… I just need to know a phone model that it definitely works on.

  • Got my hacked Play Store to work, tried to download it, says it couldn’t be found. I’m gonna assume that they took it down for a tweak or something given that I have never run into that error on anything else.

  • Not compatible with Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. Some people shouldn’t bother developing for Android if they have no clue on device compatibility.

    This game is showing 5-10 installs and has only one review. What does that tell you?

  • It wasn’t compatible with my tablet (Galaxy Tab 2) :( But I dropped them an email asking nicely for them to see if they could do it.

  • I have a Galaxy S2 T989 (T-Mobile) with AOKP 10.1.2. It isn’t compatible. Either Google Play is not detecting the phone correctly or this app requires major horse power.

  • You need a Snapdragon S4 or equivalent processor. Which mean a GS3 or equivalent phone or tablet. The program uses A LOT of graphics power.

  • @Jim Hutto
    Too bad that even phones with Snapdragon S4 aren’t compatibile. For example the HTC One S.
    There is one review with the HTC One X and even though the Nexus 7 has the same processor it’s not compatibile…

    It’s clearly their fault

  • I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and this app won’t play on mine either. I’ve been waiting quite a while for them to finally get the app on android and then it only works on a couple phone models? That is ridiculous.

  • It makes sense that it only supports the S4 and forward. That means any device that came out before 2012 is not supported.

    What doesn’t make sense is it not supporting the Tegra 3 (which is why those of you with tablets are having a problem not seeing it). The T3 performs better than last year’s S4, so the only reason I can think of is that the developer is lazy and/or released this app before it should have been.

  • My LG Spectrum 2 has the Snapdragon S4. I still get the incompatible device.

  • Since it’s a free app maybe someone at some point will just put the APK on a forum or some such and we can see if it’s a Play Store problem or an actual app problem.

  • I want to thank the peeps that posted about it not working on the Galaxy S3. You saved me from major Nerd rage over a failed app install.

  • It also says for me that it isn’t compatible with all my devices =(

    I would have installed on my Asus TF101.

  • I have been playing form my iPad and I have to say that the Teal’c game is awesome; great graphics and the Kara Kesh (hand device) makes an appearance. If your phone isn’t compatible yet, give it time. It’ll be worth the wait.

  • Might save time for them to just post what mythical phone it does work on..

  • how long do you plan to keep this site running? i bet you hope devlin makes those movies so you can generate news here about them.

  • Doesn’t show up on Google Play App but web site says not compatible with Samsung Galaxy S3. I believe the web site was not constructed correctly. Will try again in a week but this does not bode well for Arkalis.

  • I can’t find it on the market for my Galaxy 1. Looks like I will wait to see when Amazon has it for my Kindle Fire HD.

  • It is now compatible with my Optimus 4X HD, seems that they have made some adjustments. Yay!!!

  • Yup, they did. It’s now compatible with my TF101. Nothing for my RAZR i yet though.

  • Also listed as compatible for my TF201… gonna try to install the APK on my phone once I download it. I’ll let everyone know if that somehow works.

  • Shows compatible with My Samsung tab 2 now! I’ll get it installed tonight and get a review up over the weekend :)

  • Hey all, the app showed up in google play today. It showed the message about not being compatible with my device (ASUS TF101) but there was an Install button and it worked. Stargate Golf is pretty neat/cute. :D Also the SGC walk around is somewhat limited. One area looks to be under construction (boxes in your way). You can BUY access in app to another area of the base (the elevator). I hate that. >:( Teal’c’s Revenge can be purchased from within the app, don’t know how much. Finally, exiting the app requires that you use the HOME button and then use a task manager to force close the app. Have fun. :)

  • I dislike that when you buy the SGC museum area with Daniel on one device you don’t have it if you install the app elsewhere… which makes me assume that if I were to uninstall the app I’d lose my purchase.

    As an aside, just as soon as I had time to port the APK over to my phone(Galaxy S2 t989 version) I was also able to just download the app from the PlayStore.

  • Oh, and to the person who asked about BlueStacks, it’s not installing right now… I’m assuming because it’s not an “compatible” device as far as the APK is concerned.

  • actually i just tried installing on bluestacks again, and it works. golf works perfectly, but the virtual sgc part is pretty slow and hard to control. could just be my pc though, its pretty old. haven’t tried teal’c’s revenge yet, need to set up my payment info.

  • Downloaded and worked fine on my HTC One X. Also seems to work on Xperia Arc and Galaxy SII and III (version 1.2.1). Think it might struggle if you don’t have the QuadCore processor though…

  • I downloaded this morning. Thanks to Darren and Arkalis for quickly tweaking it.

  • Works fine on Myaudio 808DCC tablet,minor graphics bugs( main menu not always displayed correctly,somewhere blank texture)

  • I have a galaxy s3 and it works, but it is very glitchy. Otherwise nice app for Stargate fans. Needs more content. I like how you get into Hammond’s office you have to answer Stargate questions to enter. Teal’c’s Revenge game was the glitchiest. Look forward to updates.

  • I seem to remember all you Android fanboys going mental because you didn’t get the app on your half-baked smartphones to begin with. Now that the developer actually bothers to port this for you (lets admit, at their expense), you find that it doesn’t work on the inferior hardware, the buggy software…. what does make you happy?

  • You seem to be mistaken. Android users are not fanboys, Apple users however are most definitely fanboys. Also, bear in mind that while there is only one company making iOS devices, there are quite a few making Android devices. Furthermore, I’ve tried the app on both an iPad mini and a Nexus 7, and it runs much faster on the Nexus 7. The only advantage of the iPad mini is the larger screen, albeit at a lower resolution.

  • Works great, and is pretty cool. The golf game is fun. For what it is, it’s a pretty cool app for free. I bought the Teal’c’s revenge add on but Haven’t played yet. So far so good. :)

  • i think the initial anger that people were expressing was due the fear/assumption that the program was only going to be available on apple. now that it’s on android, everyone has access to it, either through an android device or through bluestacks. but i still want to play it on the go, so hopefully a version for windows devices is on the way.

  • Dam i hope they put it on windows phone will download on my dads gs2
