Elite.

Someone please get with Ian Bell or David Braben, I really really want to play Elite on my iPod touch. Tilt controls, a few onscreen buttons, a slider for speed, man.

Lots of Elite-like games out there, and I probably have most all of them, and thanks to all the authors of the games....but I want Elite!

Here is a list of some that I know, post other games here too that fall in the Elite-like category:
Dark Nova
The Void
Flatspace
Outer Empires
Galaxy on Fire
Star Pagga

ya might be waiting a while on this one. ian bell and braben fell out over E2 and AFAIK no longer speak to each other.

am sure i read on this forum to that braben doesnt like the iphone as a portable gaming device either ....

You might want to check out game emulators. Prolly the 1.0 (that is, the hackable) version of c64 is also able to run the c64 version of Elite.
