    Don't know if anyone else ever played Jagged Alliance on the PC but I think this game would translate absolutely beautifully on the iPhone/Touch...

    Yeah, THAT ONE!
    Man, just seeing that again makes me realize that it's really not my imagination and would actually be a great port!
    I'm salivating just thinking of what could be....

    I'm a little stuck, hehe. The game doesn't do a very good job of walking you through.

    I got to the part where you've set up a team and then you are moving them about the screen. How do you attack the enemies?

    I'm totally doing this off memory so take everything with a grain of salt. I havne't played this game since it was released what, 10 years ago? Probably more..anyways, you're not interested in that, you want to kill some baddies.... :)

    I think you have to have your dude selected (click the character icon), make sure one of the weapons is highlited, and then the mouse arrow should change to a targeting reticule. When it's red, the bad guys in range, when in white, not in range. I think you just move the reticule over the guy you want to kill and based on your characters stats/weapon, it'll be a hit or miss.

    Does that help at all?

    I figured out you have to right click to select the targeting cursor, then left click to shoot.

    Yeah, this style of game could easily work on iPhone, providing it gave a tutorial level or something to get you started. :)
