  • Assassin's Creed Coming to the iPhone

    IGN managed to grab a sneak peak of the soon to be released Assassin's Creed iPhone game. Expected to hit the App Store some time soon (maybe as early as next week) the iPhone version of the game is based strongly on Ubisoft's Altair's Chronicles, which is the DS prequel to the very first Assassin's Creed game. In the game you play as master assassin Altair and you are on a mission to explore the Holy Land to find "The Chalice" with the goal of ending the crusades. The iPhone version combines stealth, action, combat, and problem solving to create a (hopefully) awesome game. The iPhone version has the addition of "mini-games" within the main game, touchscreen controls (that hopefully will work well), the ability to upgrade Alitar with six different weapons, and what looks like some awesome 3D graphics.

    It is exciting to see more console titles make it to the iPhone and if it comes anywhere close to the original which poetic_folly calls "freakin awesome -- best game i've played on ps3, with possible exception of call of duty and i've played over 4 games on ps3" it should be a great addition to the lineup of games available on the iPhone.

      I'll also join in on wanting a release date. I loved assassins creed from the moment I tried it at my friends house, next day I bought it for my ps3.

      I noticed last night GMT that it was released. Got it and played with it for an hour or so.

      Initial response.... Polished looking but is a bit buggy. Nice game but not as good as i was hoping for. Nonetheless, great adventure/action 3D game with the potential to be great after a few software revisions.

      IMHO 7/10

      Played some more and have to correct my initial impressions....Fanatastic. Great gameplay, graphics and story line (incl voice overs etc). Very varied gameplay and a vast improvement over the HoS offering, which incidentally was my fav adventure/action game on the iPhone till now.

      Very Pleased indeed. Kudos to Gameloft. 9.5/10

OTOH, Mario edutainment titles, Pokemon print studios, and other such things have made it to the PC and there are a few Tamagotchi-style Pokemon dedicated LCD hand-held games (Nintendo would argue that they are "Nintendo Game & Watch-style handheld LCD games ).

      If Nintendo truly does not see Apple as a competitor, I don't see why they can't make some apps like an official Pokedex. Of course, they'd rather you buy a Nintendo DSi and get it on their new app store.
