Macworld has published a new article examining Digital Legends' first foray into the emerging iPhone games market. Currently at work on the development of Kroll, a side-scrolling 3D fantasy adventure game, the company is one of many developers staking a claim on the iPhone.
“We decided that Kroll would be a side-scroller, that that would provide the best experience,” said Bonilla. “All the things you need to make a great side-scroller are there in the iPhone’s controls.” Head over to the page linked below to read the rest.

Players use the iPhone’s accelerometer to jump up and down and can use touch-screen controls to activate weapons and other actions in the game.
“We call it 2.5D, because we’re using polygons and 3D artwork,” said Bonilla. “But the gameplay is similar to console games like God of War and Shadow of the Colossus, so we needed to find easy-to-use controls.”
In addition to making it easy to play, Digital Legends is concerned with making Kroll accessible to people who don’t have a lot of time to play.
“If you’re waiting for your latte, probably you want to play and have a rewarding two-minute experience,” said Xavier Carrillo Costa, Digital Legends’ CEO. “So iPhone games need to be compelling, easy to play, and graphically very appealing, but at the same time having enough depth to play for an hour while you’re commuting.”
