With all these Zombie games...

Where is Typing of the Dead? It seems like that would be a no-brainer on the iPhone.

Haha, I briefly considered converting an older FPS in my back catalog into a "Typing of the Robots" for ipod/iphone. This type of game would seem a no brainer aside from the obvious downside: the onscreen keyboard would have to be big enough to use, leaving almost no room for the tasty graphics of advancing monsters. Maybe with the right mix of translucency it could be pulled off.

If you can make it, go for it. I'd pay $5 for it at least.

Ha! I didn't think anyone would catch that. I will never underestimate the TA forums again.

If you can could do it right, with all the same type of goofy sentences. I would buy it. TotD was pretty hectic. I think a game for the iPhone would have to be a little slower. BTW, I still have TotD on my pc.
