Touchscreen support
« on: October 20, 2013, 01:57:05 am »
I was in doubt if this topic belongs to "development" or "bugs & feature requests", but anyway...

I saw in the recent blog post about the official "Android, Pandora and GCW-Zero ports" a possible future port to iOS. What interested me was the touchscreen gameplay mention.

Well, what I wanna know is: Would this option allow game makers to use the solarus engine to create games such as "The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass" (removing the 3D crap, of course!)?

If the reader is not familiar with the Phantom Hourglass gameplay, I suggest him/her to watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9xRypRDWYk.

Yes, something like a Phantom Hourglass gameplay is the goal. We are not sure how to do it exactly yet.

Set your ambitions high is what I say. I wish good luck in your journey (and I hope some artist assist the Solarus community to have free art).
