How about Tomb Raider?

Would a tomb raider game be possible for iphone? I mean tomb raider 1 was ported succesfully to the 1st gen n-gage so i think it's possible to make an iDevice tomb raider. They should make one. Any eidos or crystal dynamics people here?

Yes true. Comparing the hardware of both devices, games like tomb raider would run faster. Not to mention prettier too.

I played tomb raider on my Sony Ericsson w580i, which only has a fraction of the capabilities of the iPhone. It's definitely possible for iPhone after titles like Assassin's Creed came out, I think one is in the making already.

Who cares, to be honest... Tomb Raider is a pretty old 3d platformer. Maybe for nostalgia, but it would probably serve the same purpose as Pandemonium.

Eidos had some financial problems not so far ago (and it was tied with last Tomb Rider release) so I wouldn't bet if iPhone port is right now in production. But nevertheless I think it would be a nice addition to iPhone gaming experience.

Cheers,

not really nostalgia, ie the old games. i was thinking of the newer tomb raider games or prince of persia games like TR: Legend and stuff.

Tomb Raider port would be awesome!!! Why don't developers read these forums? People really have some good ideas! And if they do read them, they must be ignorant or something.

Yeah but its now part of Square Enix, so I assume those money problems are solved. Hmm, I can't imagine some sort of RPG Tomb Raider though.
