DS rip off

I bought assasin's creed for DS the other day and it's the EXACT SAME THING on iPod touch, I could have saved $20! The only 2 games I know of on DS are assasin's Creed and bomberman 2, what other games are there and who else has made the same mistake?

None and almost nobody. Well, Chinawars is apparently coming to the iPhone, but that's about it. EA should place a disclaimer on the AppStore description, but didn't you recognize the screenshots?

Sorry, I just wanted to see if anyone shared my pain, and no, I didn't, but they should write in the description if it's on another console or handheld

Chinatown Wars, wait for it on the itouch and then decide. Same with the rest.

Edit: I did the same thing as you, except in reverse, so i had already beaten the DS version by the time i played the iphone version. Iphone version pretty much butchered it with the control problems.

When they brought Assassins Creed to the iphone, they said very clearly that it was a direct port from the DS. Follow the reviews.

I feel your pain. The other way around at least.

I was hoping Gameloft wouldn't port the DS one =P

I love my DS. Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Scribblenauts. Quality games like that are wayyy better than iDevice games.

Pokemon would be the only one I'd actually like out of those. In my opinion, Chronicles of Inotia 2 will be better than any Final Fantasy game in terms of play. Scribblenauts is really cool though. I think it would be awesome if it were on the iDevice though. Not saying that it's not awesome now. The iPhone would just be a good device for it.

Recent purchases: Pac man CE, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, Mecho Wars, and Chaos Rings.
Upcoming Games I plan to get: Splinter Cell, GoF2
