But, really, what makes the game so well suited for the i Phone is its casual nature as compared to the typical roguelike.
And that's not to say the game is shallow or light on dungeon crawling action, but rather I feel it's simply a bit more accessible to the typical gamer than, say, will be submitted to the App Store sometime next week and should go live in early to mid December at a one-week introductory price of .99 (regular .99).
Dungeon crawler fans that like to equip an i Phone or i Pod touch when it comes time to hew a row of ogre necks are in for a real treat in a coming i Phone remake of a true classic of the genre.
Jeff Mc Cord at age 17 originally wrote for the Commodore PET -- in BASIC -- in 1980.
"Gateway to Apshai" is a action adventure (role play) for one player with a view from above and scrolling in four directions. Investigate the dangerous dungeons of Apshai to collect experience points, money and mighty magical items. Your character automatically starts with 3 strength, agility and luck points. To choose one of the 15 dungeons press the joystick up or down. Drop Item: If you have picked up too many objects, you need to put down some.
It allows for pinch-and-spread zoom control to focus on the action at hand and features an optional on-screen mini map to aid in negotiating the twists and turns of each dungeon level.
What's more, Paul has implemented a full, real-time music synthesizer system for the game which delivers sound that, while ringing of retro, surpasses the quality of the C64's SID-based score.
After this time you are autoamtically teleported to the start of the next level. The number of points result from the type of material of the treasure and the level number, where it is found.
Exampled: if you find a crown of gold in level 6 and gold has a basic value of 100, you will receive 600 points.
Now, the astute reader might be asking themselves just how well a game written almost 30 years ago in BASIC for a 1MHz, 50 lb computer suits the i Phone. As the game moved from PET to VIC 20 to C64 to PC it has certainly evolved graphically, but never moreso than in its latest jump to the i Phone.
