THIS GAME ON IPAD!!

Postby kashmir » Sun Sep 16, 2012 1:37 pm

Or other tablet device...
I was just thinking how this game doesn't require scrolling or mouse movements, just clicking/tapping, and with the retro graphics, small ram usage and low processor requirements...this could work on a tablet no?
It would be a rather easy port, probably no changes needed...
I know I'd like to play this game while on the train, and it would probably sell really well on app stores
Only problem is the high price.

It will require changes to how you interact with the energy bar system. and selecting crew members and moving them.

I was responding to the no changes needed part of OPs post.
However I've come to be under the impression that porting to android is particularly difficult, if you don't develop for that platform to start with. and that mac tablets pose an issue (but not as big as android) as well.
