iPhone Physics Games Launch in July

Monday, June 9th, 2008 by Matthew in News

Apple announced details for its new 3G iPhone at their WWDC event, as well as pricing and details for some initial game slated to launch on the new iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch owners. Given that both devices feature a tilt sensor, and the hardware specs are pretty beefy, it’s likely that we’ll see some great physics games emerge.

My own company, Flashbang Studios–creator of Raptor Safari and Jetpack Brontosaurus–is a registered iPhone developer. The engine we use, Unity, has also announced intentions to bring their technology to the iPhone.

Games shown at WWDC today included an iPhone version of Sega’s Super Monkey Ball, as well as a mobile version of Pangea’s Mac OS physics-based puzzle game Enigmo (Mac footage shown here):

    Oh wow! I’ve never been much of a fan of Apple, but I might consider getting an iPod touch for physics games on the go!

    Will these games be available for download without modifications, or do you have to jailbreak the iPod/Phone?

    I have played the Enigmo demo. It’s pretty fun! You have to bounce the droplets of liquid into the jars. Enigmo 2 is similar but has lasers and plasma balls.

    Wow, I have got an iPod Touch and I can’t wait for some new physics games. New ones? Yes: Jailbreak your iPhone/iTouch and download iPhyisics via installer. Great fun :D

    So, I looked at the website and as far as I can see, you can’t play a windows demo of Enigmo (and I didn’t see anything about an Enigmo 2)

    Little help please? ;p

    Apparently, there IS a Windows version but there is no demo to play before purchasing a CD.
