Side-Scrolling Game

Don't you think that we need some more good 2D side-scrollers like Toy Bot Diaries? I would do it but my programming experience isn't good enough. However, if there is another developer out there interested in doing one (me involved with graphic design) I'd be glad to help PM me if your interested.


Just imagine if Nintendo got crazy and made a good Super mario Bros port!? That would be incredible, but very, very unlikely.

Yeah, it makes sense. They already released it for iPod so I bet we'll see it pretty soon

Really? Why is that?

Anyway, I was thinking the other day about how much fun side-scrollers are on the iPhone. I'm glad to see devs have interest in this.

I'd start experimenting with making iPhone games myself, but unfortunately the SDK requires 10.5. I'm stuck back in 10.4.
