Lost Winds coming to iPhone, iPad and Android

David Braben, the legendary developer of classic games like Elite and Frontier, has announced that acclaimed WiiWare title Lost Winds is coming to iOS and Android. Lost Winds was a launch title for Nintendo’s WiiWare service, and was rightly considered the best title on the format for a long time, at least until World of Goo came along. A platform game where you used gestures with the Wii Remote to control the main character with gusts of wind, the game was praised for its innovative gameplay and peaceful setting, but criticised for its short length. The smartphone version will predictably control with the now standard virtual control stick, with flicks and swipes on the touchscreen replicating the Wii Remote gestures. The original game will launch first, and will be followed by its sequel some way down the road. Our take? This is great news for fans of quality platform games. I hope that the developer either release at a good price to account for the relatively short game time, or charges full price and adds some new content, but either way it is an exiting prospect to be able to play such a classic. We will be reviewing this as soon as we can, so keep an eye out.
