Wagic is now compatible with the OUYA! Here’s how to install it
A few days ago, developer ezraanderson posted an OUYA compatible version of Wagic 0.19 on the ouyaforum site. I finally had the time to give this port a try today, and I can confirm it works well!
Wagic has been compatible with Android for a while, unfortunately it had a few issues on OUYA that prevented it from running properly. The main issue was that the OUYA controls weren’t recognized. Ezra Anderson fixed that and a few other things, in particular providing a patch that replaces the PSP icons with OUYA icons.
There are a few bugs, but those are mostly not due to the OUYA port. They are bugs I have experienced on the Android version as well. Sound effects do not always play, and, maybe more annoying, the game controls stop working once in a while. In particular, I have found that every time a “tutorial” screen comes on the battlefield, it is fairly frequent that you’ll have to cancel the game and start a battle again. Those “hint” screens appear a lot the first few times you play, but eventually they go away, so please give the game a chance. (Below’s a fanmade video of Wagic running on Windows)
If you’re an OUYA owner, this is a great opportunity to give a try to what I still proudly consider to be one of the best PSP homebrews ever made. If you’re a trading card game fan, I believe this game is a must have.
I explain in details how to download and install the game on a page I created specifically for this port. I tried to name it simply so that people on the OUYA browser can access it directly: http://wololo.net/wagic-ouya
Many thanks again to Ezra anderson for this port 🙂
