    A powerful and precious relic that has been at the center of occult legends for millennia, has become a real threat. Hidden in a remote temple, it is sought after by a group of dangerous mercenaries that want to acquire its power to enslave the rest of the mankind.

    There is one hope, and it's you.

    Soon on iPhone and iPad

    Gameloft, they don't copy. They clone.

    If the game is designed well - who cares? ;) :D

    But I have to admit - it looks quite familiar...

    Wow, even the character's clothes are the same as Nathan's, except the top's blue.

    But then again, in Uncharted, you're the one trying to find the treasure.

    Anyway, I hope they don't mess this up. As long as it's good, I might pick this up unless there is some element of the undead, as that's going TOO far.

    Nice. I don't think we'll ever get an official Uncharted game, so this is the next best thing.

    Im excited...

    Uncharted 1 and 2 were quite awesome and I'm happy to see them (in clone form) coming to the iDevices. It's either a clone, or nothing, and frankly we [iDevice gamers] would take a clone over nothing anyday.

    Gameloft is like the chinese economy, of course standard products are just well made and good, but for special elite products, if you go over a chinese market or in a shop, you see lot's of strangely familiar things and start to recognize which elite brand got covered there. You'll see iPhone clones with almost the exact form factor and be happy oh it's in the color blue I like it so much and then in the end it's a meizu clone with windows CE or something similar. This goes on with cars, machineries, movies etc.

    Sure those things function in a way, but nonetheless they are ripoffs in always lower quality. Often companies with licenses/brands/properties THEY original invented are looking helpless at the chinese market and are standing in tears because their original material got raped by the chinese economy. Gameloft represents exactly that chinese economic mentality. "Applause" to you sir for honoring such discusting behaviour from gameloft with every cent you spend on their big games.

    That doesn't mean that there are minor good games with original feeling and uniquness, there are some few from gameloft: the Bridge Builder game, block breaker, Castle of magic (Love it!) and even Dungeon Hunter (There where several action RPGs before Diablo)

    But still all the other big games from gameloft feel like chinese rip off, they atract you with "Whait a minute... Is this God of War/Gran Turismo/Uncharted/Resident Evil for the iPhone? WOOAAHHHH" and in the end you discover the equivalent under the hood choppy Windows CE system with iPhone skin situation of an hardware manufacture.

    Or theyre a company trying to bring the console experience to the iPhone because those large companies don't want to put their games in the app store. I love Gameloft for doing that...they're trying to bring all those popular titles to the iPhone just so that we can have the experience. I don't care if it is not the exact thing. The game is on a phone...of course it's not gonna be the up to par with the console game. But they do such an amazing job bringing it closer and closer.

    Nice reply - a point for you. :D

    In the most cases, you can't invent the wheel completely new.
    Sure - this looks, smells and feels like Uncharted with a bit Tomb Raider in it, but most games in most genres are already clones. I would even dare to call Uncharted a Tob Raider clone. It was the first of its kind, after that, many clones came. Same with match-3, FPS, Even Aralon reminds me a bit of Gothic or Two Words.

    But this, yes, this is a holycrap-howblatant clone.

    And if it is well made, fun to play and thrilling, I don't care. I always liked to have an Uncharted clone for mobile gaming.
