It is always great to see classic strategy games make their way to iPad. When Feral Interactive brought Rome: Total War [$ 9.99 (HD)] to iOS, many questioned how it would control and look. Those fears were mostly put to rest and we even saw the release of the expansion, Barbarian Invasion [$ 4.99 (HD)], as a standalone release. The iPad is a fantastic way to play Rome: Total War and I was quite showcked when it was announced for iPhone. A lot of PC games make their way just to iPad and not iPhone like FTL and Papers, Please due to the larger real estate available. Rome: Total War was scheduled to release on iPhone for $ 9.99 but it was delayed. We finally have a video showcasing how the port looks and how the interface is on the iPhone screen.

The gameplay video above looks lovely and I can’t wait to get it just because it is still pretty mindblowing for me having games like this and Planescape Torment Enhanced Edition on a device that (used to) fits in the palm of your hand.
All the factions from the desktop and iPad version will be indeed be in the iPhone version.
Rome: Total War’s interface looks very nice in the video although there are still various details we don’t have.

Check out our forum thread for the iPad version here for more discussion on it.

Square Enix surprised fans today by releasing Chrono Trigger on Steam, making it the first time the cult classic has been ported to PC. Fans should be cheering. Instead, they’re groaning over the game’s terrible quality. The Steam release appears to be a port of the seven-year-old mobile version of the game. Let’s just say this particular version doesn’t look good on Windows. It has the tile-based interface, intended to go hand-in-hand with touch controls, an ugly font, and buttons which stay in the corner of your screen the whole game. This looks like someone’s first attempt at an RPG Maker…
