An online RPG, looks interesting...http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=303937743&mt=8

Adventure in the Canadian Yukon in the days before the gold rush.

You can follow several paths (combat, crafting, healing, hunting, collecting resources or trading goods) that will allow you to earn a living. Your actions will also indicate how strongly you place the needs of the village above your own desire for wealth and power.

It looks interesting but having used it I can't imagine a game that could benefit from a horizontal position more. Man, I thought it was hard hitting links in Mafia Live before the changes but that had nothing on this. It supports pinch zooming but the horizontal orientation just seems like a more natural fit. I also question if their servers are prepared for the potential onslaught of iPhone and Touch users.

Aside from that, I can't seem to make much sense of it. There's a bulletin mentioning tutorials will be put up so I'm withholding judgment until then. It is an interesting premise, I guess I'll wait and see.

Really hard without a tutorial because you dont know how things function.
And I hate that it looks like a website, poor ui.
