Bungie’s Marathon coming to iPad

Famed Halo developer Bungie has revealed that a version of 1994 shooter Marathon is to be released on the iPad.

The controls will obviously get adapted from the old keyboard and mouse setup, tough will still use virtual on-screen buttons. It’s said that it will run at a steady 30fps.

The port is being handled by indie programmer and iOS game dev Daniel Bleznek.

"Marathon’s story and gameplay are outstanding," he explains. "Durandal’s descent into rampancy, his quirky humour and the hidden messages make excellent additions to the old school style.

"For many, Marathon will invoke a wave of nostalgia; for others, this will be the first experience with the seminal Mac FPS. I hope all players appreciate Bungie’s commitment to their fans. It’s not every company who would support bringing a 16 year old game back to life."
