'Minecraft Dungeons' on XCloud has been Optimized for Touchscreens

Microsoft's long-awaited xCloud game-streaming service officially launches on the 15th of April with more than 150 games. One of those games is Minecraft Dungeons, and Microsoft has just announced that developers Mojang Studios and Double Eleven have made it easier to play the game on the move by optimizing it for touch controls. This means you can play the game on your Android smartphone or tablet without having to hook up an external controller.

The majority of Xbox games included in xCloud were created with the Xbox controller as the primary focus. Microsoft assumes that most gamers will be using their controllers by connecting them to their smartphones. Microsoft wanted the game's interface to feel native to mobile devices. This means it will feature touch controls and a redesigned user interface that is better suited to smaller screens. This will make it easier for players to navigate inventories or menus, and any texts that could be associated with them.

For optimizing the game for touch, Microsoft notes that moves players make the most (move melee, move attack and dodge) are in the most "intuitive" places on the screen. MC NAME The concept is that the experience will feel as if the game was designed with mobile in mind, rather than being an afterthought. Of course, we'll have to play the game ourselves to judge the success of these games however it's a great indication to be able to see Microsoft looking at ways to make games perform the best as they can be when played away from your console and TV.
