Goldeneye on the iPhone?

Goldeneye on the iPhone?

We seem to be in a bit of a retro mood here in the Gaming Heaven offices today, what with Dragons Lair on the iPhone and now news comes to us via YouTube about an N64 emulator for the iPhone, we are already rubbing our hands at the thought of having inter office Goldeneye multiplayer games, but we might just be getting ahead of ourselves.

Although the YouTube clip, posted by a 14 year old who is working on the emulator, clearly shows it working, there are many issues that may mean it never even makes it to the App store. Chief amongst those is whether Nintendo, fierce protectors of their IP in the past, will allow such an app. Some are even speculating that his wont be an official app, but instead only work on jail broken phones.

There is also some concern over how the games could be ported or even whether the iPhone can handle them, but in reality, the old N64 didn’t even have a core speed of 100mhz and the iPhone clocks in at 600mhz and has far more ram than the old Nintendo classic, so this shouldn’t be a problem.

The inevitable questions over the video’s validity have also come up and there are a multitude of questions over how to control some games using the touch sensitive screen. It looks like this could be a long running story before any of us get to play Goldeneye on our iPhone.
