‘Anno: Dawn of Discovery’ Coming to iPhone

Ubisoft has sent word of Anno: Dawn of Discovery coming to iPhone, along with some tantilizing screenshots to drool over.  Anno: Dawn of Discovery was released on the PC along with the Nintendo DS in 2007, and it has sold fairly well on both devices.

The gameplay can be described as follows:

The player starts as leader of an unnamed country which must colonize and expand in the game world. While the player expands their in-game territory, other computer controlled rivals are also expanding and strengthening their countries. As the player progresses through the game, they gain access to naval vessels and troops which allow them to invade and ultimately to defeat other players. Anno 1404 features an updated interface, bigger islands and worlds to explore, a sandbox mode, and other features new to the Anno series.

Ubisoft has rebuilt the game to more adapt to the average iPhone gamer, making it more simple and built for single game sessions.  The complexity of the PC version will not be as prevalent, and while more hardcore gamers may feel left out, we’ll have to see what they exactly mean by this.

The final price for Anno: Dawn of Discovery will be $4.99, and from the sounds of it, it will be a port of the PC version and not the DS.  For more information on the title, check out the Wikipedia article.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.

  1. Well, it definitely losses much of the graphic appeal the pc version has, and it’s one of the main reasons i might not enjoy it as much. The pc version is simply beautiful and relaxing 🙂

    Love the ANNO series, hope it translates well to the iPhone.
