Gauging Interest in an iOS Port of Blood

Hello everyone! Being that General Arcade (@generalarcade) did such an amazing job with their port of Shadow Warrior, I asked them via Twitter if they had any plans to also port Blood and Duke Nukem as well. They said they would probably be porting Duke Nukem, but Atari (@atari) was not interested in porting Blood. That being said, I wanted to start this thread to show them that there IS interest in an iOS port!

I even created a "proof of concept" screen shot of what Blood could look like with Shadow Warrior's control scheme.



So, what do you think? If you are a fan of this classic FPS, and want to see it get an excellent port by this awesome developer, PLEASE vote accordingly and let them know via Twitter! Thanks!

Here's a video of the PC version for those of you that aren't familiar with this game.

Wow, this is surprising. There's over 90 views so far, but only two people have even bothered to vote. Does no one remember this classic, or is there really no interest in an iOS port?

I would buy the hell out of this if the controls could be done well.

Have you played Shadow Warrior yet? If you ask me, it's got the absolute BEST controls of any FPS on the AppStore. The way you are able to continuously fire your weapon AND still look/aim at the same time is executed perfectly. It feels as close to a keyboard/mouse setup as I've ever experienced on a touchscreen.

That being said, I'm sure the controls will be just as good if General Arcade does the iOS port of Blood.

Yeah, Dark Forces WOULD be an awesome port to see on iOS! Maybe we'll see it one day.

I have not, mostly because the original game never really did much for me. But since there appears to be a free trial, I may as well give it a go and see how it handles.
