Little Big Adventure 1 coming to iOS and Android

The people from DotEMU released this image today via their twitter account:

That is a photo of LBA1 running on an iPad. The port is currently still under development for both iOS and Android.

Additionally, DotEMU is also selling LBA1 and LBA2, you can get the LBA1 + LBA2 bundle for only 7,99 euro. The games cost 4,99 euro separately.

Just like GOG.com, DotEMU is an digital distributor that sells classic games (DRM free) which have been fixed to run on modern PCs.

I wonder how on Earth you would play the game using just a touchscreen as controls. Imagine playing LBA 1 with running into walls hurting you, when you only have your fingers on a screen to direct Twinsen.

Now about that DotEmu site, I noticed that they have quite the catalogue of Sega Mega Drive games. Does anybody happen to know whether the games sold on the site are 50Hz or 60Hz?

Wonderful! I have be wishing for an update regarding this ever since I tried to run LBA in dosbox on my Android, without all too much success; it was quite slow, despite my phone being quite fast.

Will definitely spend money on this as soon as it comes out. LBA portably, even natively at that, is a childhood dream come through!

Finally some words of this version.

A nice feature to add would be make Twinsen walk to a Touch Position. We touch a point in the scene and he walks till there.
Also make possible to have Actions according with touch.

Touch to move, distance away determines speed (like the DS Zeldas, worked well)
This would also let you ditch the modes....walking very slow is automaticly stealth, walking fast is running. You auto switch modes on speed basically.

Fighting and magic ball is harder really.

You know that was very unpopular in the ds Zelda's and my personal reason for giving spirit tracks away.

Spirit tracks was rubbish for all sorts of reasons :P, but I thought the controls were smooth/quick/easy. Cant see a better way to do it.

use the ds like any other console and use a game pad? They never even game the choice to use the arrow keys to move link.

No clue whatsoever why they didnt give a choice, but DPad didnt give you speed control and you only get 8 directions.

Its academic anyway, tablets dont have dpads, only shitty (imho) onscreen emulations of them.

Wow, great news! I wonder if they will redesign anything. Ex. it would be cool to see a upgraded 3d engine in LBA2 (the 256 colors, software rendering and low resolutions looks sooo bad by todays standarts). And if they do I wonder if they would release it on pc.

There are other ways to control direction on an iOS device other than touch...

Will it be an official release? If no I prefer to wait the one from the developer to support him even if I need to pay.

It seems that its still in its beta stage and still unavailable. But when they release it you will probably have to pay for it.

I'm really interesting to know if they will also use our open source engines TwinEngine and Prequengine to make this iOS port.
