Tomb Raider now available on iOS, Angry Birds Star Wars gains new levelsClassic 1990s adventure game Tomb Raider has made its way to iOS devices, featuring controller support and 15 hours of gameplay, while Angry Birds Star Wars adds additional levels and a new boss fight.
Developer Square Enix promises that their iOS port of the Tomb Raider franchise's first edition is "the full, unedited, unadulterated experience." The company says the game boasts 15 hours of gameplay, including two additional chapters added for Tomb Raider's 1998 re-release that were not included in the original game.
Tomb Raider comes with similar touch controls to those found in Square Enix's other iOS games, like the Final Fantasy series, and also includes support for Made for iPhone game controllers. The game has been optimized for both the iPhone and iPad.
Square Enix's iOS games are generally well-received, and early user reviews of Tomb Raider are equally positive.
