I hope they do better with this one.
There is no info on their homepage yet.

I loved the PC version!

yeah the Duke Nukem 3D for iOS was a terrible port!
but this looks pretty good.

Hope they've learned how to design decent touchscreen controls. This does look cool, and I like the idea of new levels coming in as free updates.

Hell yes! After the near-insult of Evil Dead, this is good news. Loved Painkiller on the PC, so it'll be awesome to see how it translates to the little screen. I'd hope they could make it universal, or make an iPad version at least.

Damn, that really is Painkiller. I don't recognize most of the first video except at the end (big boss fight happens there) but I recognize the Atrium level; it's definitely the same layout as the original Painkiller, but it looks scaled down to iPhone-capable levels, so I'm betting those are the real deal. Awesome.

I'll say this: If the coming iPhone version is the same as the iPad version, save your money. The iPad version is crap.
