Friday, May 30th, 2008

iPong for the iPod Touch/iPhone.

It’s a quick proof-of-concept game, apparently made in less than an hour, but these guys seem really amused…

“Pong! *laughs*”

Quake 3 Arena running on the iPhone and iPod touch.

A coder known only as Scott has managed to compile Quake 3 Arena for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Movement is achieved via the in-built accelerometer, with aiming and shooting performed with the touch screen.

Unfortunately, no public release has been made available.

Pole Position: Remix for the iPod

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008


Namco have dusted off the source code to Pole Position II, and brought the classic racer to the iPod. Dubbed Pole Position: Remix, the game features a new track, and the ability to listen to your own music while playing.

Pole Position: Remix is available for USD$5 / AUD$7.49 from iTunes, for users of iPod Nano (3rd gen), iPod classic, and 5th gen iPods. That’s more than twice as much as I’d pay for it, but those without a DS or PSP may have other ideas.

Hudson develops for iPone and iPod Touch

Bomberman developer, Hudson Entertainment are moving heavily into Apple iPhone and iPod Touch game development. Their games will be web-based, and made available on Hudson’s “Do the Hudson” website. The website opens tomorrow, and iPhone and iPod Touch players will be be able to access it with their Safari web browser.

The games on feature will be ‘Megutte Pon!’ - a Bomberman themed tile-flipping game, ‘Meijin wo Sagase!” - a Where’s Wally-style game, and ‘Dokka Kawatta? (e, mittsumo)’ - a spot the difference game. I’ll be very surprised if many people “Do the Hudson” based on those games - where’s iBomb?

Harmonix and MTV announce Phase for the iPod

Harmonix releases Phase for the iPod

Harmonics and MTV have just announced the release of their new game for the iPod, Phase. Being the first large developer to use the iPod, Lead Producer Kasson Crooker is naturally very excited about the project; here is what he had to say about it:

“Our goal with Phase was to create a fundamentally accessible, casual music experience for iPod users where we implemented our years of work with rhythmic gameplay elements and present them in ways that any music fan can easily understand and have fun with. We wanted to create something that took users beyond the standard game format, tap into the unique design of the iPod, and give players a fresh, new way to deepen their relationship with their own music — the music they love.”

To play the game you only need an iPod nano with video, iPod classic or fifth generation iPod, an iTunes account and Phase. The game is available on the iTunes store for US$4.95. The game is controlled by clicking or sliding around the scroll wheel in one of the two game modes.

From the video we can see the game is looking amazing considering the iPod isn’t a dedicated gaming device. Check after the jump for a couple more screens.
