It is always great to see classic strategy games make their way to iPad. When Feral Interactive brought Rome: Total War ($9.99) 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), 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.
Today, Feral Interactive have announced a slight delay in the iPhone port. They needed a bit more time to bring the full Rome: Total War experience to smaller screens. 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.
