Don't look now, but iOS
has a huge share when it comes to mobile gaming.
The App Store has become a giant in the industry, and now even Sega is
taking notice. The hardware-gone-software company has just announced
Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing for iOS, a game that should become an
instant hit on Apple's iPod touch and iPhone. The iOS version of the
game should be immediately familiar to fans of the prior version, and
here's the killer part: multiplayer support is there over Bluetooth or
Wi-Fi, giving users two ways to game against one another.
That just sold you, didn't it? It'll be released this spring, but a price hasn't been announced.
