Here’s how to play Counter Strike on your Android Wear watch

Written by Jaivik Shah

If you’ve been desperately wanting to play Counter Strike on the tiny screen of your watch for a while, you’ll be glad to hear it’s now possible.

Thanks to the skills of one man, you can now blast some bots into next week directly from your wrist playing Counter Strike 1.6.

To get started, you’ll need to download the Xash3D app that will let you run old Windows versions on your Android Wear watch.

As well as Xash3D, you’ll also need to have a copy of the original game handy and this Counter Strike client app.

Once you’ve got those, all you need to do is make a folder called Xash on your device, copy the Valve and Counter Strike folders from the game installation into that and then launch the client app to enjoy endless hours of madness on your wrist. Luckily for Counter Strike fans, there are still a few servers running for the original version of the game from the 90s so you can also play multiplayer as well.

So, if you’re a fan of the original Counter Strike and happen to have an Android Wear watch then it’s definitely worth firing this up because there’s really no good reason not to.
