    Hey I love the game zuma for popcap games (http://www.popcap.com/games/free/zuma?detect=2).

    So since you can buy it from iTunes for other iPods, I was wondering if it could be ported to the iPod Touch/iPhone?

    It would be amazing if someone could make it!

    how would you control the frog to make him rotate? or to switch between the balls that he shoots? that would be the only difficult part

    Let's say that the frog is in the center of the screen. You can place your finger on the screen and move it in a circle around the frog to cause it to rotate in that direction. Tapping would cause it to fire the ball. To switch balls, there could be a button on the screen for that in one of the corners or something.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Only I think that when you release your finger, the ball should fire.

    Then add a multitouch sensor so that you can switch without having to fire.

    A player releasing to readjust(or on accident) might cause an issue.

    I haven't messed with zuma in a while, but is there an option to make the frog face whatever part of the wheel you touch? There's a similar control scheme in vortex, that I know. A control scheme like that would be useful. It could be an option or something.

    You could choose between two controls.
