The lights are on
William Shakespeare has conquered the stage and screen, but hasn't made much of a splash in gaming yet. However, Alawar Entertainment is bringing its popular Hamlet: Or The Last Game Without MMORPG Features, Shaders And Product Placement adventure game (already out on PC) to iPhone soon, allowing you to keep the Bard in your pocket at all times.The game, which is comedic point-and-click adventure title, details the exploits of a scientist who travels back in time and encounters the characters of Shakespeare's famous play. On his quest to free Ophelia from the malevolent Claudius, he has to defeat a few hilarious bosses and a host of tricky logic puzzles.While we don't have a firm release date, the game should be out before the end of January 2011.Hamlet for iPhone siteSource: Joystiq

ok ummm it could be fun?
As much as I like a good point-and-click, I like keeping my sanity, too. I mean, It takes a while to learn the ropes of a Shakespeare book, with all their crazy millennium old language.
If only the actual story was as entertaining as this sounds.
Well, I don't think I would pay for this game, but I'll check it out if it's free.
So,is the full name of the game "Hamelet:Or The Last Game Without MMORPG Features,Shaders And Product Placement?"
If so,then it at least has a typical japanese RPG name!
Bleh to iPhone news, be cool and put more spotlight on Android projects :P
This has the makings of an instant classic. Hell, that name alone makes it worth a purchase.
Man, is it me or are there alot of good Ipod games coming out.
As much as I love to see adventure games being made anywhere, I played this game on PC and found it lacking to say the least. Steer clear if you don't want to be launching your phone in frustration.
Sounds strange. Might check it out.
wierd but why not for ds or psp?
