Pixel Junk Shooters

Would this not make a perfect iPhone game? It combines puzzle and shooters all in one and I think this would for a hell of a game. And yes this does sound familiar but this game would be a top seller and maintain that position for an extremely long time. And yes there are tons of games that would be great for the iPhone but this one would be the best overall. It is (in my opinion) the best indie game ever.

Wait THIS is a ps3 game?
I'm not sure how you would do the controls on an ipod though. Tilt could work for the movement and then a little wheel for shooting (like dual stick shooters). or I guess you could go completely dual stick shooter controls

its on the PS3 network much like Xbox live. but I have played it before and you use the two joysticks to control the ships. I see it much like minigore....1 stick for movement and 1 stick for aiming and shooting.

Pixel Junk always comes through with great titles. Monsters and Eden were both simple, yet fantastic games. I haven't downloaded this on PSN yet, I have too many other games to play at the moment.

Going back to your question - yes, I think this would work great on the iPhone. Email Pixel Junk maybe and let them know your thoughts?

I just recently beat PJS, quite a good game. Not very challenging but definitely a great start. What matters most to me is that it was original and innovative. It would make a good game on the iPhone, but as an alternative, PJS can be played via RemotePlay on your PSP (assuming you have one).

I picture it with accelerometer for movement, tap to shoot. Wifi multiplayer would be awesome too.
