Prey Port Coming to iPhone

7
An iPhone port of Human Head Studios' first-person shooter Prey is on the way to the iPhone, according to IGN.

The port (pictured below) features a bar-based control scheme. Users control the character's movement and aiming using four on-screen bars, while buttons to the side are used for attacking and changing weapons. In development at MachineWorks Northwest--developers of the critically-acclaimed Prey Mobile 3D--Prey for the iPhone will hit the App Store within the next few weeks.

    Meh; Good PC game, but why would I want to play it on the iPhone? Doesn't make sense. It doesn't make for a good portable game.

      Why do people continously port quake to platforms that never intended users to play them? That's the magic of carmack's engines.

        People port Quake as a fun coding exercise. They generally don't release them for money.

          Yeah, Quake is kind of the gaming equivalent of, "Will it run Linux?".
