Are you an iPad owner who has been patiently wondering when you can get your hands on Gameloft’s highly-inspired-by-Starcraft real-time strategy game Starfront: Collision [$2.99/Free]? There is a whole thread in our forums wondering just exactly that, and if you fall into that category there is some good news for you today. Gameloft has released 3 new videos of Starfront: Collision for the iPad depicting battles between each of the 3 available factions in the game (complete with slightly annoying play-by-play commentary). The video below shows off a battle between the Myriads and Wardens:
There are 2 more videos on their YouTube channel, one with a battle between the Consortium and Myriads and the other showing the Wardens versus the Consortium. Gameloft is usually pretty good about releasing native iPad versions of their games at the same time or not too long after their iPhone and iPod touch versions, but in the case of Starfront they’ve been taking their sweet time. Since they specifically mention the iPad 2 in their video descriptions, the extra time may have gone to enhancements tailored to the extra horsepower of that device, but we’ll have to wait to find out for sure.
There isn’t a specific release date for Starfront on iPad other than “coming soon” but generally when Gameloft starts talking about something it isn’t too far off from coming out. Until then you can check out our quick impressions of the iPhone and iPod touch version of Starfront or drop by the release thread in our forums to see what players have to say about the game, and we’ll be looking forward to checking out Starfront: Collision on the larger screen of the iPad in the near future.
