Ignition Entertainment should bring Archer Maclean's Mercury to iPhone

With the recent release of Hydro Tilt [App Store], my immediate association was with Archer Maclean's Mercury for PSP.
I bought Hydro Tilt [App Store], and although it is good, for me, it doesn't have the visual 'polish' that Mercury boasts.

I'm a secret lover of Archer Maclean's Mercury, and would really like to see Ignition Entertainment bring the title to iPhone,
as I think it would suit the accelerometer control system really well.

Would anyone else like to see the official Archer Maclean's Mercury arrive on iPhone and iPod touch?
I personally think it'd be a sellout.

I second every word of your post, OP. I LOVED Mercury to death, and I bought HydroTilt solely because it reminded me of it. It's a nice game, but the presentation is a little too simple... Still worth the money, though.

That looks cool, much nicer style and graphics than Hydro Tilt, lets hope they port it to the iPhone/iPod Touch! With some well done accelerometer control, it could be great.

I hated Mercury and thought it was the worst game I ever bought for the PSP. What a POS that game was - and the controls were terrible. WORST. PSP. GAME. EVER.

With the iPhone and iPod touch carrying built-in accelerometer controls for tilt based navigation, the platform is seeing a wide variety of tilt based puzzle games released onto it.

The most recent being Hydro Tilt.
(http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=299770095&mt=8).

Now this title works on the same principle as your licensed product Mercury. Taking this as a sort of technical demo, Would you be able to, or do you have any future plans to port or develop a touch based version of Archer Maclean's Mercury?

I'm a huge fan of the franchise and being the owner of an iPhone 3G,
would love to see the title ported sometime in the future.

Cheers,
Arron
If you'd like to see the title on the iPhone and iPod touch sometime in the future yourself,

If you really think Mercury was the WORST PSP GAME EVER, you must not have played many PSP games.
