Rag Doll Kung-Fu
, the marionette brawler on PC, is getting an iOS port this summer courtesy of Another Place Productions
. The iOS version sports new art from Fable art director John McCormack, a single-player survival mode and, of course, a new touch-based control scheme. One finger lets you move your character around, two fingers control attacks.
Local iOS multiplayer is possible through Bluetooth synchronization, plus there's online multiplayer over the internet, Eurogamer reports. Rag Doll Kung-Fu
will be a free download on iOS, with in-app purchases funding Another Place Productions.Rag Doll Kung-Fu
was created by Mark Healey, an employee of Lionhead at the time. After a favorable GDC showing in 2005, Healey found a publisher in Valve who then put the game out on Steam to great success – a milestone as the first third-party game to launch on the platform. Healey went on to become co-founder of LittleBigPlanet
developer Media Molecule, and currently resides there as creative director.
