    The Egg game from Hudson gives me an idea for a GREAT FPS game.

    • Have the accelerometer's position determine Up, Down, Left, Right. Just as if you were looking through it yourself in the real world.
    • Controls should be movable, position them how you like. Like Apple's virtual keyboard, they can have any language. So with this, you should be allowed to set where the controls are and how you want them. Like how you would change keys on the Keyboard.
    • Double-Tap forward to jump forward, Double-Tap back to jump backwards. Bunny hopping as it were.
    • Button positions can/should be changed to fit one's needs if end user chooses so.

    Great concept, we need to force the developers to use this.

    Good idea , not quite sure what you mean about the movement though.
    FPS games on the iPod are so sketchy so far.

    To look left, right, etc, you move your mouse right? So you do that. Look up, down, left, right, side to side. Then use Forward or Backward to move in that direction. Quite simple actually.

    The Team Fortress 2 pic I found on the internet. iPhone from iPhone simulator. Font is some Half Life dingbat thing. Other icons are from Custom Shapes in Photoshop CS3

    Though yes, I made that layout.

    Cool. What app did you use for the photo editing? Anyway That would be a great way to play FPS games. The game play would be very fun and easy.

    That and it'd be pretty silly lol. Do NOT play in public. People seeing you swinging around like a maniac shooting people in the game lol Especially if you play with Speakers for sound.

    I used Photoshop & Skitch to edit the images.

    Ohhhh , so sorta almost like some of the racing games.
    Like go forward and back is a touch thing , and turning is a tilt thing.
    That's a good idea.
