Among a mostly bullshit press release from Apple this morning about 100,000 copies of the iPhone SDK having made their way to developers’ computers, perhaps the most important announcement in mobile gaming since Dope Wars was ported to my old Treo:
“Apple’s become an important mobile game platform with the iPhone SDK,” said Jason Kapalka, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, PopCap. “The new SDK gives us the tools to innovate and reinvent games like Bejeweled, Zuma and Peggle. With the new App Store we can reach every iPhone and iPod touch user on the planet.” [emphasis added]
Okay, maybe the most important mobile gaming announcement to me.
I’m actually curious to see if they change the Peggle playfields to the widescreen format of the iPhone or leave it 4:3 like all the previous versions. That will actually have some gameplay repercussions.
