Someone should port Box Head to the iDevice!

In case you do not know what Box Head is, it's a very cool game where you try and stay alive as long as possible, and get as many points as possible by shooting zombies. There's usually eight maps to choose from in this flash game (in 3.0 OS, the developer can always make more maps and sell em' maybe?) and they're all great. Making the controls can be easy to make. Just look at the screen below that I made:



How to Play...
[Arrow Keys]: Move
[FIRE]: Shoot
[Slide finger on top-right]: Select different weapons (8 in total)
[tap button on top-left]: Pause menu

I would definitely buy something like this if someone decides to make it! Any thoughts would be welcome. Oh and in case you want to play this game on your PC (it's a flash game after all), just Google in "Box Head" and click one of the top searches (i.e gamefudge, etc).

Looks Good! Boy, I'd buy it instantly if it had DLC for new weapons! I'm a sucker for awesome weapons! Sure! I'd take a port!

Just because someone should doesn't mean someone will. In other words, another useless thread.

Maybe I came off forceful -- but I was only "suggesting" to anyone who would like to create such a great game to the iDevice. I don't see why you feel this is pointless. Ideas are always welcome to developers searching these forums ya' know. At least, that's what I thought.

Boxhead has resemblance to Minigore. I would love to see a port though (wasted too many hours on the flash game).

Yeah, I'm looking forward to minigore because it looks like boxhead to me. I remember logging lots of hours on boxhead in the computer lab at school. I would love to see a port.

This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Yeah, I have it as well. The controls aren't as smooth and the game overall isn't as fun as the computer version, but it's still a decent buy for .99!

Yeah, I have gotten 99 cents of joy out of it; however, it did crash on me today after playing 8 levels...anyone else experience crashing?
