3D Realms' Shadow Warrior coming to iOS this week

The iOS version of Shadow Warrior is hitting the App Store tomorrow, according to developer General Arcade.

Shadow Warrior, a classic FPS from 3D Realms, is coming to iOS tomorrow. The game was originally released in 1997, and was considered controversial due to its over-the-top violence and cheeky stereotypes.

Touch Arcade reports that developer General Arcade has stressed the work it put into perfecting the controls, which were lackluster in the iOS Duke Nukem 3D from MachineWorks. Pricing for the title hasn't been announced.

      Hopefully the control scheme is better than the Duke3D iOS port.

        It was bad even after they "fixed" it. FPS's are incredibly hard to control on a tablet, though - no matter how much they configure it.

      are these ports actually financially viable?

        Considering Duke 3D was free, that's a good question.

      I wonder if Apple made them clean up some of the non-PC content.

        Sure hope not. Also, GTA Chinatown Wars has plenty of politically incorrect content to tell me it wouldn't be forced on them.

      Do you want to wash Wang, or watch Wang wash Wang?
      Ugh.
      I loved this at the time way more than I care to admit.
