    I would like to see a port of the ijji game gunbound to the iphone...I think the controls and gameplay could be very intuitive. Everything about this could be ported to the iphone. For those of you who do not know, gunbound is a "worms" style game where you choose a bot and try to hit the other one by adjusting power and angle. Share ideas, or responses below.

    gunbound.ijji.com <----you guys should go check it out and see what you think about how cool a port of this would be

    Although I imagine the processing power required to run something like Gunbound will not be mild at all.

    If it could run something like monkeyball i can guarantee you it can run a 2d game with a small map. My friend ran gunbound on a windows 98 computer like 2 years ago...I dont know the ram and processing specs, but I am 99% sure that it will be able to run it. Think about it touch power and angles...pinch zoom the map...I think the port would work quite nicely while giving ijji some due attention

    Well said. This would be an app I would definitely pay for, although best of luck getting the GB publishers to let you port.

    I mentioned it to them, but I am not sure the idea fell on the right ears. If i knew anything about code I would definitely work on it myself, but as I do not know too much all I can do is hope. I posted back on the gunbound forums a couple months ago and came with huge feedback. It would be nice if the folks at ijji would realize the potential of something like this. I too would pay for a port of gunbound to the iphone. It would be even better to be able to play online with the desktop users.

    I was a serious gunbound player many years ago all the way back with the international version. But the real gunbound is solely made for multi-player.

    I actually do not prefer to play games over wifi on my phone, for battery and connectivity reasons.

    Having that said however, it would be interesting to see an offline, single player version of the game. And no, shooting at aimbots will not work.

    Eenies At War v1.0 Nearly Released.

    Well Eenies at war is kind of an Gunbound adaptation for the iOS. We've been working on this game for about a year. It's powered by iOS 4.2 GameCenter enabling multiplayer. Also there are hundreds of avatar and weapon upgrades. Free to download.

    check http://www.savysoda.com for details on release. We expect the game to be on App Store next week.
