How I think some SEGA games would work on iPhone

    After playing Monkey Ball, Crash Nitro Kart and De Blob, I was thinking about how some console games could be translated to the iPhone or iPod Touch. Mainly, SEGA games in particular. How would these games handle with the iPhone's unique interface? Here are my suggestions.


    JET SET RADIO - (Played Vertically) (Actually rumoured to be in development.)

    Like the game "De Blob", you guide your skater through the city by either touch control, or tilting the screen slightly. When coming up to a marker spot, you use your fingers to copy the swipe controls that are displayed. You can also go into a "make your own graffiti" mode where you can either use a paint program, or you have your own graffiti font where you can write your name on the touch screen and it comes out in a cool graffiti design. You jump by merely tapping the screen, and attacking enemies is done with a swipe in any direction. If cops are piling on you, shake the screen to get rid of them.

    SAMBA DE AMIGO - (Played Horizontally or Vertically)

    Simple Enough. When the blue dots are about to hit the mark, you merely tap the screen at that mark. When a bunch of red dots are about to hit the mark, you shake the screen till they vanish. Giving a little variety to the game. Downloadable songs through iTunes.

    THE TAPPING OF THE DEAD - (Played Horizontally)

    The title is self-explanitory. Tap the screen to kill the zombies. Swipe to reload. Shake screen to get zombies off of you. 'Nuff said.

    CRAZY TAXI - (Played Horizontally)

    Like Crash Nitro Kart, tilt the screen left and right to steer. Gas is automatic, but there are two on screen buttons on the lower right side for brake/reverse and drive. Swiping both buttons while driving will send you into a drift stop. A quick shake of the screen will let your taxi jump.

    SONIC - (Played Vertically or Horizontally depending on what Sonic game it is)

    The good thing about Sonic is that he can be played in a variety of ways. Here are some of my ideas.

    "Wii STYLE" - Like SATSR, you have Sonic running forward. Tilt the screen left or right to steer him. Tap screen to jump or hold finger on screen, then let go for longer jump. Shake for hover attack.

    "CLASSIC 2-D" - Tilt the screen left or right to get Sonic moving in that direction. A gentle tilt will have him move slowly while a longer tilt will have him running fast. This will help give Sonic analog movement in a 2-D game. (That would be a first.) Tap to jump (of course). For dash spin, hold a finger down on left side of screen, and quickly tap on right side with other finger. Then, let go of left side, and he's off!! Also, imagine Sonic 1 or 2 bonus stages with tilt control. Sweet!

    "PINBALL SONIC" - Tap left or right side for bumpers. Tilt screen to give Sonic a nudge in a certain direction. Give the screen a quick shake to make him hop towards what direction you're tilting.

    Well, there you go Sega. I just made your job easier for you. Now, GO MAKE THOSE GAMES!!

    You know what, I had those ideas in mind too.

    Game companies should think outside the box when porting or making console like game son the Touch interface. I still see D pads built into the screen, which frankly is very awkward. A little creativity would make things workable, like those ideas that you just posted here.

    Games are not required to have 100% a Dpad, just creativity from the developers.

    Apple built those features, so developers, put them in use for Crhist's sake!

    Would love to see Crazy Taxi on iPod Touch. The graphics on Wingnuts Motocross look so Dreamcast like (or Sega Naomi Based arcades) that its really exciting.

    By the way...

    Since the Dreamcast was based on the Naomi Hardware, here are the specs for Naomi hardware from Sega and the games made for that arcade board. I justr drool @ the possibilities:

    NAOMI Specifications

    * CPU: Hitachi SH-4 32-bit RISC CPU (200 MHz 360 MIPS / 1.4 GFLOPS)
    * Graphic Engine: PowerVR 2 (PVR2DC)
    * Sound Engine: ARM7 Yamaha AICA 45 MHZ (with internal 32-bit RISC CPU, 64 channel ADPCM)
    * Main Memory: 32 MByte
    * Graphic Memory: 16 MByte
    * Sound Memory: 8 MByte
    * Media: ROM Board (maximum size of 172MBytes) / GD-Rom
    * Simultaneous Number of Colors: Approx. 16,770,000 (24bits)
    * Polygons: 5 Million polys/sec
    * Rendering Speed: 500 M pixel/sec
    * Additional Features: Bump Mapping, Fog, Alpha Blending, Mip-Mapping, Trilinear filtering, Anti-Aliasing, Environment mapping, and Specular Effects. [16]

    F-zero would be amazing btw. it would be simple too. but i suppose a lot like every other racing game, except each car goes like 1 million mph other than like 70.
