I recently purchased a cube tablet (U30GT2) and would love to put Grim Fandango on it..problem is, I have zero idea on how to do it, which download I need etc.

My cube has an RK3188 Quad Core, runs android 4.1.1...

Will Grim run on my tablet? Which download do I choose? Is there a dummies guide available ( yes, I do need it :-)..).

Thanks to all who read this and great thanks to those who respond.

Residualvm currently does not support Android.
However, we have an experimental version that works, but hasn't been tested yet.
If you look at this thread you'll find a link to an .apk file, which is the format used for packaging Android applications.

Next, you'll need to transfer your grim fandango installation to your tablet's internal storage.
You can use the standard usb storage or android file transfer tool for that.

Finally, you can start up residualvm, add the game from your internal storage (it's probably /sdcard or /mnt/sdcard), and launch the game.
The thread I linked above also contains some experimental controls, so please leave a message there whether they're awful or usable.
