Hit Wii title Cooking Mama and classic arcade game Space Invaders are set to hit the iPhone, it has been announced.
Available from Apple’s application store, Cooking Mama harnesses the motion sensitive controls of the iPhone to deliver a gaming experience that is very close to that offered by the Wii version of the game.
Gaming sites anticipate that new recipes/challenges will be added via the application store in months to come, potentially extending the life of the title indefinitely.
Meanwhile, the iPhone version of Space Invaders also uses the tilt and drag functions of Apple’s all-conquering handsets to breathe new life into the 30-year-old game.
Taito is now expected to bring a host of its other famous titles to the iPhone, including the classic platform games Bubble Bobble and its sequel Rainbow Islands, Operation Wolf and the frantic Bat and Ball update Arkanoid.
Space Invaders was one of the first-ever shooting games to be created and spawned a slew of imitators, including Galaga.
