We heard of Gameloft bringing James Cameron’s Avatar to the iPhone around 2 months ago, but other than that, there has been no new screenshots or gameplay videos. Well today, the first trailer for the game has surfaced via Gameloft’s Youtube, and my oh my this looks beautiful.
I’m actually quite surprised with how Gameloft produced the graphics on this game, and while it’s nowhere near the console versions, it’s definitely a lot more than I expected. Avatar for the iPhone seems to be one of the most graphically impressive games being developed, and we can only hope Gameloft’s alien FPS Nova looks even better.
The control scheme seems to use the same joystick control method along with action buttons on the right. While this method did not work in the earlier days of the App Store, we’ve seen it work recently on games like Earthworm Jim and Modern Combat Sandstorm. While the controls aren’t really a worry for me, it’s somewhat interesting to see just how creative developers can get.
The video trailer is embedded below for your convenience.
