Mirrors Edge on iPhone

I didnt put a "?" because i wanted to attract ALL OF YOU. Now that your in my trap, read on, no its not a chain letter.

Ok check it out. And I think theres a few ways it could work.

Option A - 3G-S ONLY + Compass:

Now that there is a compass in the 3G-S this bring out a whole new control method in games, hopefully. The control scheme would work like this. The camera would be set to where you are always looking center, you can use the accelerometer to look a tiny bit around the axis. With the compass you would turn your body to turn and stuff. The screem would only need a few buttons on it for combat, jumping, slide, etc. Not hard. perfect Game.

Option B - All

Basically, just like any other 3D game would play.... on-screen joysticks.

Hope you enjoyed my lecture =D

Yeah ever since that "other" site promoted getting this game ported over I was wondering what would be a good control scheme. Seeing what you mean about the compass does sound good but it just wouldn't reach the bigger audience. Myself will own a 3GS but I just think that it would be too soon to think about isolating the market.

I don't get it.

But still, what it -seems- like to me is more complicated. I like the games with all touch control... But then again, I don't play any of the FPS' or other games that require virtual joysticks.

I agree with this. A lot of the people I've talked with who already own iphone 3Gs are not going to upgrade to the new 3GS. There just aren't enough changes to be made to warrant another purchase, especially if the contract isn't up. I would stick with a control scheme that works with all versions of the hardware

i agree wholeheartedly. all my friends and myself are not upgrading as its not a big of change. i think a lot of the current market will be that way for quite some time...

Porting the 2d flash version would be awesome enough
