Maplestory on Iphone/Itouch?

Would it be possible to do it? The graphics aren't that great, the device should be able to handle it with some lowered graphics.

Maybe i am just dreaming, but it sure would be awesome. Play your favorite mmo on your phone or ipod :P.

It is possible, but sadly I don't think the iPhone can hold a huge online for maplestory, maybe up to about 5 players?

Well, I never played MapleStory but I have seen it's graphics, it shouldn't be hard to pull off. RuneScape and WoW, on the other hand, are impossible.

Currently playing: TouchKO, Castle of Magic, and Resident Evil 4.

Perhaps, perhaps not. Maybe it should be some restricted small, ipod/iphone server

The iPhone probably couldn't handle a game of it's scale

Isn't the iPhone more powerful than my old pentium 1 PC I used to play quake 1 and diablo 1 online with dozens of players? Or wait, was it pentium 2? I would think that maple story with dozens of players on screen would be a breeze if thats the case.

Nintendo owns Nexon so the answer is simply no. Can a game LIKE Maple Story be released? Sure but not Maple Story.

Well.. My thoughts are...

Lag with large servers.
Battery problems
Touch screen for your hotkeys...
There are too many buttons to add into a small screen like that.
