Amnesia: The Dark Descent for iOS?

I think that Amnesia would take iOS gaming (iPad in particular) through the stratosphere! I would love the game to be ported to iOS. I have a question though, to people who are less of a novice than I am when it to processing power, is the A4 and / or A5 powerful enough to run a game like this (and at a smooth frame rate)?

Sadly no, while the graphics are not super advanced (still more than any of the current iDevices can handle, though the could be down-scaled possibly), Amnesia relies on a lot of physics for puzzle solving. This uses a lot of processing power on its own.

I do agree though, movement aside, a lot of Amnesia would have played well with a touch screen. Not sure it would have packed the same punch in terms of terror though.
