Real­ly a lot of the rea­son I’ve stuck with iOS for a while is the mul­ti­play­er games. This is what got me into this in the first place, it’s some­thing I got real­ly excit­ed about for a while, it’s so per­fect for them but there are very few and they don’t do well. I think a lot of peo­ple just don’t realise that they’re car­ry­ing around mul­ti­play­er con­soles every­where they go? Culture.

Mighty Vision: why am i mak­ing games for ios

Glitch Tank remains one of my favourite iPad games. It is indeed a shame there aren’t more mul­ti­play­er games like it, and those that do exist aren’t reward­ed in the mar­ket place.
