Video game developer Square-Enix has released Tomb Raider I on iOS, bringing the popular 1996 action-adventure game to mobile devices for the first time. The latest adaptation of the title features touch-optimized controls with all of the levels from the original, along with gameplay that mixes gunfights and puzzle-solving adventure elements. Tomb Raider I on iOS also supports game controllers such as the MOGA Ace Power and the Logitech PowerShell.

Adventurer Lara Croft has been hired to recover the pieces of an ancient artefact known as the Scion. With her fearless acrobatic style she runs, jumps, swims and climbs her way towards the truth of its origin and powers - leaving only a trail of empty tombs and gun-cartridges in her wake. On this trail are breath-taking 3D worlds where exploration, puzzle and platform elements blend in a seamless real-time environment. A perfect chance for newcomers and diehards alike to jump back into the series' seminal single-player action.

Classic title. I'm surprised Apple allowed such controversial pixels onto the App Store.

This game is hard enough to play with a KB+M I don't hold hope for the touchscreen players

I'm sorry but, what loser wants to see that polygon unclothed?

I'm just a bit surprised at how bad this game looked is all. It's from the same generation as Zelda: OoT (albeit, OoT wasn't released until 2 years after this, but still, it was running on hardware of comparable age) and it just looks so much worse.

Wow, 99 cents from a major publisher? I am a little surprised it didn't start at $4.99+.

I am buying it simply because it is 99 cents and is a great "why not?" price point. As much as I enjoyed this game in my younger years, any more and I would have passed. :cool:

I'm not necessarily cheap (I had no problem paying the $200 for Logic Pro, for example. Or all of the Apple iLife Apps before they became free :p), but sometimes this kind of price point will lead to a lot of spontaneous purchases. I like that and want to encourage it.

This is amazing. It includes the 2 extra levels I've never played! 69p!

Cheers MacRumors for reporting this stuff. I wouldn't have known otherwise.

Finally, while it downloads, what games am I missing?

Cheers!
