Of course!
There were some Tomb Raider games released on the PSP, and the iPhone 3GS/3rd Gen Touch are just as capable (if not even more capable) at running such games.

Hi,

I had Tomb Raider on my Dell Axim ppc a few years back so it would definitely work on the Idevices.

Been one of the games I have been hoping to see.

Let's not forget that the original was a launch game for the Nokia Ngage. I suppose it depends which one you'd like to see, but the older ones would definately work (performance wise... I imagine the controls being a bit iffy).

Tomb Raider Anniversary would run fine with controls like Avatar.

While I'd love to see Tomb Raider on the iPhone, I can't even imagine how they'd do the controls. :X

This is a link to a screenshot of Tomb Raider for ppc.

I think the controls would be quite easy to do on the idevices.

Keep in mind, the game that screenshot is from was done four or five years back, so quality would be quite a bit better.

Yeah I was thinking of later games that required use of all kinds of shoulder buttons.

It'd take some thinking up to get a new control scheme working. While it won't be perfect, it'll satisfy most people. They're be too excited with the novelty aspect of it to really care if they can't make a precise jump.

Is that a single stick and four buttons?

I'd like to see Halo myself. I bet that'll happen after the ipad.
