Gameloft are putting out the popular mobile version of Assassin’s Creed on the iPhone. IGN got the scoop on the game with three screenshots, and a bit of information on the gameplay. Here’s what they had to say:
Altair’s acrobatics are controlled with on-screen virtual controls that look quite a bit like the successful set-up from Gameloft’s Hero of Sparta. While moving along the rooftops and beams, you collect blue orbs that are later cashed in for personal and gear upgrades.
The minigames from the DS version also make the jump to the iDevices. When Altair needs to pick a pocket, you must physically drag the desired item (a key, for example) out of the target’s purses without touching any other object. When Altair interrogates a suspect, you tap pressure points on the target to elicit information. You must tap the spots with the rhythm to get the job done.
Watch out for the full review here when the game launches.
