  • Hedgewars - Coming soon to iPhone/iTouch
    Hi all,



    As some of you may or may not know, the Hedgewars team is working in collaboration with Zodttd to bring their game Hedgewars to the iphone platform. What I wanted to do is give you some information on Hedgewars, and hopefully get you a little excited about its eventual release.



    So What is Hedgewars?

    Hedgewars is a turn based, multiplayer, strategy game based on the ever so wonderful Worms Armageddon. In Hedgewars players take it in turns to control their team of hedgehogs, wielding a variety of wacky weaponry in order to annihilate the other team(s)! You can try the windows/linux versions over at Hedgewars (although we have progressed greatly from the current official release.)

    Hedgewars on the iphone will hopefully implement a fun and innovative control scheme. Utilizing all the features of the iphone, finger movements will control your hedgehog, taps and swipes will control your weaponry, want to alter the angle of your parachute drop? Just tilt the phone!


    So what's a thread without media, well I have some pictures for you here:

      I find it amusing how everyone instantly thought of Gunbound, Worms would
      have been a better choice to reference it to, but even that's the wrong answer in my opinion.

      I believe it was in 1983 when I first played the Atari Game know as "Scorched Earth" which is the base model for both worms and Gunbound.

      I couldn't find an original screen shot of it worthy of posting but here is one
      emulated on the PSP.



      Anyways, I can't wait to see this on the iPhone, it looks great!
      Thanks for the Hard Work porting this over everyone!
