Gameloft needs to "make" Dota

And by make, I mean clone. Straight up clone.

Anything else would ruin the balance. They've shown 10 player multiplayer is possible, so why not make a game that defines 5v5?

Also, Super Smash Bros.

They need to clone or make Kirbys epic yarn and donkey kong country. 2d platformers work well if doe right on iOS and the iOS systems like iPad can handle any wii game graphically as well. So make an epic yarn game game loft.

Also, they need to make Darwinian and defcom. There is no reason these two ames still haven't hit the app store but only steam.

I can see Dota really working. It's a third person "shooter" (one that casts spells and stuff), and they've got an engine for that. Resolution might be a problem, but it shouldn't be that bad. They'll have experience after Starnotcraft.

well in dota are less units as in starcraft so that should be no problem
but dota kinda lives from the updates and that´s a problem because gameloft normally doesnt improve games and adds new content

I don't think Dota would work too well. But there's an upcoming game Dungeon Defenders meant to be loosely based on Dota.
