Somewhere On Your iPad... We Are Waiting

The first salvos in Bungie's anniversary news assault have been fired, and one round has a decidedly Pfhorlike flavor.

Bungie is announcing that Daniel Blezek has ported Marathon 1 to iOS; efforts started in 2010 and apparently the app is ready now-- I don't see it in the iOS App Store just yet, but I'm going to keep looking.

UPDATE: MacRumors, MacCentral and TouchArcade (earlier this year) also have stories on Marathon coming to the iPad, as well as screenshots and more details. Unlike the XBLA port of Marathon 2 made previously, the iPad version of Marathon apparently is based on the code open sourced and developed by the community as the Aleph One project, and reportedly will be a free release.

I'd be excited if I had an iPad. ;) Still pretty awesome though!

I'm skeptical about how practical a touch interface is for games like this designed for mouse and keyboard, but as a free game and a novelty, I'm definitely in.

Other kinds of games work far better on the iPad, and for video, audio, pictures, web browsing, navigation, and ebook reading, the iPad is aces.


Rampant for over se7en years.
