Retro PC RPG Little Big Adventure comes to iOS devices, Android to follow soon
Little Big Adventure is an action-adventure role-playing game that was originally released on PC way back in 1994. Now, the time has come to take it out of the dirty closet, blow the dust off, and present it on the future generation's iOS devices (and Android, soon). We admit that we haven't played this old gem, but we say, if one's able to still make money from something made 20 years ago, then it must have been a fine product, no?
In LBA, you'll play as Twinsen, a young man living on Citadel Island under dictator Dr. FunFrock's reign. This must be one fun dictatorship! Anyway, Twinsen has been having strange dreams in which his planet is about to be destroyed, and Dr. FunFrock doesn't find them particularly fun, which is why he throws our protaginst in an insane asylum. As Twinsen, you’ll need to escape from your cell and discover you are a descendant of a long line of magicians... and, maybe, go to Hogwarts and battle Voldemort and the Death Eaters? Probably not, as they weren't around in 1994.
Anyway, the iOS port of LBA is made with special attention towards the touch-screen platform. The game is retooled with new touch-controls, additional tutorials, a zoom feature, an automatic save system, and localizations in five languages English, French, German, (voices and text) - Italian and Spanish (text only, voices in English). In addition, the game is said to contain over 15 hours of content, which is a mighty lot for a mobile title.
Little Big Adventure is already out in New Zealand. It should be available in other parts of the globe soon. Keep an eye on the App Store in the meantime.

I wonder why it isnt on Steam or GOG. Would make more sense to re-release for those, would be less work than a mobile port.
