Anders Hejdenberg, the lead designer of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, released a trailer for his upcoming iPhone game today.
Dark Nebula is described as a "skill-based action game" which appears to be a much enhanced take on the ball-rolling games we've already seen for the iPhone. Anders writes:
βThe iPhone has always intrigued me as a gaming platform, both in terms of how you can interact with it as well as what it is capable of technically. So I felt quite compelled to try it out and see what we could do with it. It was a lot of fun to come up with a new game concept with a control mechanic that feels great on the device.β
Like many of you, we thought we were pretty much over tilt/ball rollers for the iPhone, but the gameplay video definitely got us interested:
The game will be released as a series of episodes with the first being 10 levels for $0.99. The first episode is expected in September.
