Saqqarah available on the IPhone

Tag: Casual Games,SaqqarahMaciek @ 2:58 pm

I’m happy to announce that our latest game Ancient Quest of Saqqarah is now available on the IPhone from the itunes appstore. The game has been ported to Iphone by Virtual Programming. What is interesting is that the conversion is a near direct 1-1 code port from the Mac version of the game. It means that whether you are playing Saqqarah on a Mac or Iphone you are running the same code. Of course the game had to be squeezed from 1024×768 to 480×320 resolution, but it still features almost all of the eye-candy effects and all gameplay features from the original.
The game has been broken into 7 parts, so each temple can be purchased separately. Below are the links to the 4 versions that are already available in the appstore. Other temples will quickly follow, along with free evaluation versions.

The Temple of Isis

The Temple of Thot

The Temple of Anubis

The Temple of Bast

    I was a little disappointed when I saw a couple of the temples available on the app store a week or so ago. How come the need for 7 different apps? I’d much rather pay $7 for a single app with all the bells and whistles of the Mac version.

    I’m sorry to hear that. I do understand that players that already own the PC/MAC version can feel a little disappointed. I believe the decision was made mostly due to differences of the itunes market, as apps over $5 tend to get very bad results. Having said that I still hope that Virtual Programming agrees to make a single bundled version – nothing stands in the way, at least from technical perspective it should be fairly straightforward.

    I hope you can convince them to do so 😉 I’d love to get one icon on my phone for the great game that is Saqqarah instead of 7. Looking forward to StoneLoops, I’ll be picking that up as soon as it hits. Thanks!
