Holy cow, 2K does a crappy job promoting their games. This was completely out of the blue. I was hoping for this for a long time now. Glad to see it finally come to the phone, but man, 2K...

Will be interesting to see how well this one's supported.

I read complaints that the entire land party / invasion aspect was removed for the ipad version. Which amounts to about 1/2 of the fun. I presume this is the same for the iphone version, but .... /bought anyway. I always loved this game.

Once I saw this, I thought "oh well, a lite version for iPad." When I saw it was for iPod Touch and iPhone, the next word in my head was "INSTABUY!!!" This and Tilt to Live finished off my iTunes card. Thank you 2K Games for finally releasing this for "the handhelds"! ^^

I really did not see this coming, and I really don't mind the surprise! I can think of few games better suited for pick up and play, but of the slightly more invested, time-consuming (think a few minutes rather than one) and immersive kind. I had fun with this on my Mac LC twenty years ago, just as fun 7-8 years back on the Mac/PC when the enhanced remake hit, and I'll probably have just as fun on my iPhone.

The classics are really starting to fill up the App Store. Before too long, we might be creeping ourselves out with thoughts of mobile-sized zombies in Alone in the Dark, harvesting yet another few thousand crystals in Star Craft, but this time in Retina, and perhaps even let our eyes be fooled by the smaller screen and proudly proclaiming "Oblivion for iOS looks just like the Windows counterpart!" (and for those who fancy such activities, jumping through hoops and performing near-identical versions of the same task over and over in World of Warcraft ), all on our iOS devices. If we can just get Overhaul Games to port the enhanced Baldur's Gate to iPhone as well as iPad, we need never again look at a new and innovative title

This is a shame, and a durned loss. I wouldn't say "1/2 of the fun", though. More like 1/5 Let's make some noise about it, though, and perhaps 2K will add it eventually. (They did add custom scenarios to the iPhone version of Civ Rev, for example, after much requesting.)
