Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Kwaak3

Apps Description
Kwaak3 (Port of a famous 3d shooter to Android) is an open source Android project which is a port of Quake3 to Android. Kwaak3 includes the following features:
* Audio
* Hardware floating-point on Neon-capable devices
* Input: keyboard, touchscreen and trackball
* OpenGL 3D rendering
* Game uses ARM optimized libcgamearm.so / libqaarm.so / libuiarm.so
* Networking

Normally when you compile C/C++ code using the Android NDK, the compiler targets a generic ARMv5 CPU which uses software floating-point. Without any optimizations and audio Quake3 runs at 22fps. Since Quake3 uses a lot of floating-point calculations. I tried a better C-compiler (GCC 4.4.0 from Android GIT) which supports modern CPUs and Neon SIMD instructions. Quake3 optimized for Cortex-A8 with Neon is about 15% faster without audio and 35% with audio compared to the generic ARMv5 build. Most likely the performance improvement compared to the ARMv5 build is not that big because the system libraries of the Milestone have been compiled with FPU support, so sin/cos/log/.. take advantage of the FPU.
