Do you think Rovio should create a new version of Darkest Fear for iPhone?

At Rovio Mobile we're debating whether or not to make a new version of our hit j2me game called "Darkest Fear" for the iPhone?

If you've played the old versions we'd love to hear your thoughts?

They're is a straight forward yes and no poll attached. Thanks for voting

Enh, how about another deep puzzler in the vein of Totomi!?

Totally! I've played the first one and it was really well made - one of the best games there is on the platform. The Iphone and Touch community would definitively benefit from having this series ported.

I just spotted a game on wiiware called Lit and it's a complete rip off of Darkest Fear. Not happy.

Thought the triology was the end of it? Are you going to remake it?
What about War Diary? That series can be expanded.

Remake the game and be done with it. Aim for at least iDracula's graphics and animation. Puzzles and pathfinding need an update too. Story seems really good.

We've been receiving alot of feedback asking for more Darkest Fear. It would most likely be in 3d and it would use some features of the old games but a new story line. The war Diary series was not as successful as Darkest Fear so new titles for it haven't been discussed as of yet, but you never know. We're currently working on a game for the Nokia N-Gage after that projects complete we'll start developing some new titles for the iPhone.

Whoops, I clicked on the wrong button for the poll. It should be a yes not a no.

I haven't played Darkest Fear before but I am interested in it! The idea and storyline does look interesting.

I realize it would take quite a lot of resources though to rework the engine and graphics. The problem is that gamers for the iPhone/touch have an expectation for the experience to be optimized for the device and not a straight port.

A straight port of Darkest fear to iphone would probably look like S*#t aswell. Old java graphics can't be compared to the possible iPhones graphics.

I enjoyed the Darkest Fear trilogy on my old Razr and would love to see an iPhone version for sure!
