Pocket God [99¢] is a game that hardly needs an introduction around here. With meager beginnings as a simple sandbox with an island full of pygmies you can toss around, Pocket God has since turned in to a seemingly unstoppable monstrosity that now includes mini-games and tie ins from all sorts of iPhone games such as Harbor Master [$1.99 / Free] and even Doodle Jump [99¢]. Other features have been added such as the ability to create little in-game movies with your islanders, turn them in to zombies, and more things than I can even list off the top of my head. What started as a game that was so basic it was hard to even describe as a "game" has turned in to an iPhone game with a surprising amount of things to do and discover.
This fall, Pocket God will be coming to the iPad. Pocket God for the iPad will be a completely new game, as creator Dave Castelnuovo told CNN, "I don't really believe in taking an existing title and cranking out an exact same clone of the game on every different console out there. If we have a really hardcore fan that has it on both iPad and iPhone, we want them to have a different experience."
This new Pocket God will have the same humor that Pocket God fans have come to expect, with the first installment being titled Journey to Uranus. The pygmies will quite literally take to the stars, and Bolt Creative sent us the following screenshots that show how this is all going to look on the iPad:
Since our forums served as one of the original infestation points for the Pocket God army, you can bet that as soon as we hear more details on either Pocket God for the iPad, or the upcoming Pocket God comic book, we'll post everything we find.
