Default Castle crashers on iPhone. Is it possible?



This is only some Microsoft paint edit I made in like 10 seconds. I want to know if it's possible for a game like Castle Crashers to work on the iPhone. It was one of my favorite games of all times and would be awesome to see a port or a new castle crashers game exclusively for the iPhone.

Castle Crashers + iPhone = EPIC WIN

Is it possible? Yes. The game was created by an independent company. Their first game was on the DS, PSP, PS2, and stuff like that.

Is it likely? Probably not. The game would have to be very limited. This means not multiplayer, not as many levels, etc. Personally, I'd love to seethis on WiiWare (yeah, I said it) before anything else.

I wouldn't mind a more limited Castle Crashers. As long as it's at least - as long as Castle Crashers on XBLA and multiplayer should be possible if it doesn't go higher than 2 players. It would be badass. A look alike of Castle Crashers is Zombieville USA, showing that the graphics are possible. Maybe a sidescrolling Castle Crashers. Or an Alien Hominid. I love the Great Behemoth's games. They own so much.

Just an FYI, but Alien Hominid was a flash game first.

I have CC on the 360 and after having it there I would be dissapointed in an iDevice version.

It'd take some work -- I think getting the control right would be the main challenge.

As it is for most iPhone games nowadays.

How would that work? The game relies on a series of buttons and joysticks to control. The only way I can imagine it working (without essentially making a different game and skinning it with Castle Crashers graphics) is to load the screen with on-screen controls which, in my opinion, suck.

I love me some Castle Crashers, but I think this would be terrible on the iPhone. I don't think every game can or should be ported to the iPhone and this is one of them.

Wasn't great for the XBox, and it probably wouldn't be great for the iphone. One of the great features of the games was the art. And it would be sub par to the XBox version. So, I wouldn't really care if it came on.
