Freeverse iPhone games
Freeverse, the developer of games like Kill Monty and Commander: Europe at War, says it will be one of the first companies to produce native games for the iPhone and iPod touch. The company has in fact already begun work on two products, the first of which is Flick Sports. Like Nintendo's Wii Sports, the Freeverse title combines several mini-games, including Golf, Bowling, Soccer and Baseball; here players take advantage of the iPhone's unique flick/pinch controls. More mini-games may be added with time.
Flick Sports: Moto Racing is solely devoted to road-based motorbike racing, and should use the iPhone's accelerometer as a means of steering. Freeverse is also promising unusual characters and a unique sense of humor, but no release dates have yet been mentioned for any iPhone title.
Other game developers are unconfirmed, but it is rumored that Electronic Arts and Gameloft will expand their releases beyond current titles for the iPod nano, classic and 5G.
