I remember playing it many years ago. Good game but they would have to create the art from scratch to fit the idevice. If done well it could be an excellent game.

Loved Syndicate as a kid. Last I remember, EA was planning a remake for current gen consoles. I don't think anything ever came out, and I don't know if it's still in the works. But if EA still holds the license to Syndicate, and they indeed make a new version, I'd say it's very possible they'd release an iPhone version as well. Although it would also probably be a remake, which may or may not be good. I'd kill for the original though.

Interestingly, Glenn Corpes (Ground Effect) and Sean Cooper (Boxhead) both worked on the original Syndicate game & Glenn also worked on the later Syndicate Wars. I'm sure that they'd both be really happy to see it ported to the iDevice.

If a thread on a forum were enough to get an old game ported, and we were looking for something from Electronic Arts, I'd prefer to get some Wing Commander love on the iPhone. It would work really well with tilty touchscreen controls.

If you want to play Syndicate, you can do so on the PSP -- they have the Genesis version of the game on the EA Replay disc, and you can download the UK version of the PS1 game Syndicate Wars. We'll probably get Syndicate Wars in the USA soon since we've received WC4, Magic Carpet, Hi Octane, and Populous recently.

Maybe if the freeware homage is ever finished, someone could port that to iPhone.
