Geometry Wars coming to a cell phone near you


The Xbox Live hit, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is being ported to mobile phones by Hardcore3D Wireless. Control for Geometry Wars required the use of dual analog sticks. One stick was used to move your ship and the other is for firing shots. How is control going to be translated to mobile phones? “Intuitive ‘tap’ control allows you strafe or fire in front of you.” Part of what made Geometry Wars such a solid title was the fluid and easy to pick up control scheme. That is going to be a real challenge to recreate on cell phones, which lack a joystick.
