    I find something interesting by mistake :p



    Official website: www.ascensionwar.com

    First think: "Eve Online clone?", but nuh... the video don't show anything about the gameplay and offical website too. Game will be on PC and Mac... it will be on unity engine, and since is ported the developers decided to make iPhone version too ^^ this maybe biggest iPhone project yet

    I think back in July there wasn't really any big apps, so Super Monkey Ball was a big deal. The world has changed, hasn't it ;)

    the vid did absoultly nothing for me, what is the point of the game, to scroll around objects in the sky?

    as a fan of Elite games myself, i just keep my finger crossed it's not a rts title!

    This look insanely good for an iPhone !! (if this is a real iPhone version of course, from the look of the video it looks like an higher res version)

    That video is so old...who knows where the "game" is now? No recent info or news about anything on the site either...seems abandoned

    I agree with Mek and dannys95: what was the point of that video? Based on that alone, I'd have no desire to buy the game. The video felt like "Final Fantsy Lite" to me, and a little something about the gameplay at the end would have been nice.

    This title is coming out on multiple platforms, made with Unity. The artwork and graphics are impressive and I remember hearing something about this game a while back....i don't even know if its in production anymore...

    But yes, for all of you people who just picked up iphone and ipods recently (after 2.0), SMB was HUGE.

    I know a guy working on this project. They have a studio and everything. First I've heard of an iPhone version, but it's a Unity3D game, so in theory it would come over to the iPhone.

    However, there are a lot of shader effects in that trailer. OpenGL-ES does not support shaders (which is what the iPhone uses).

    I saw this on youtube about a year ago. You'd think it would have been out by now...

    Yeah, nice graphics, but if that's in-game footage...wow. Snoozeville.
