Marathon Infinity reaches iOS through third-party port

A Bungie-approved third-party port of Marathon games have been recently updated for iOS, with the third chapter Marathon Infinity now available as well. Programmer Daniel Blezek, who spent months porting over the libraries and adapting technology on the series, offers original-rez but full versions of all three Marathon games for free on iOS, with in-app paid upgrades to new HD graphics, Master Chief mode and other options.

Marathon Infinity is the concluding chapter of the saga, and recounts the events of the first two games in the "Blood Tides of Lh'owon," the single-player portion of the third game. It features all 25 levels divided into four chapters, along with five hidden levels and (as with the other instalments) a new weapon: a KKV-7 10mm SMG Flechette submachine gun.

The Marathon game was originally created and became a hit game on the Mac in 1994 and went open-source in 1999. A community has maintained and enhanced the original game since then, but the port to iOS and the general technology and graphics advancements from the last decade still posed a challenge. The first port, of the original Marathon, debuted last July.

Marathon Infinity offers both single-player and networked game modes, and also features 50 netgame arenas for true "Vidmaster" challenges.
