Gameloft has released Assassin’s Creed - Altaïrs Chronicles, its latest game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Based on the Nintendo DS game of the same name and previewed last week, Assassin’s Creed puts players in control of a master assassin named Altair, sent to Jerusalem in the year 1191 AD to steal a chalice in order to end the Crusades. The game offers a mix of stealth, problem solving, and action, and features skill-based mini-games, cinematic cutscenes, the ability to upgrade Altair and his six different weapons, and 3D graphics. Assassin’s Creed - Altair’s Chronicles is available now from the App Store and sells for $10.

People need to get over the price of some of these games.  This isn’t Tetris or another Brick Breaker clone.  This is a REAL gamers game that would probably sell for at least $30 on the DS or PSP.  The $10 price is a steal for many of the big name franchise games coming down the pipe very soon.  As long as it’s well made and wasn’t just thrown together for the sake of having a franchise name in the title these games can be well worth the price and will push the iPhone/iPod Touch more into the game platform world.

Yeah. I don’t get it with people and their complaints about $10 games. Its like a good portion of iPhone users are cheap people. Like sting74 said, games like Tetris would go for $30 on a DS. The quality of iPhone games are similar to handheld game consoles, so what is the big deal? If it were a cheezy BRU game on a lower end phone I could see it. Seems like the iPhone is a bunch of whiners.

@ sting7k: Yes i do see your point BUT the games being made have the polish of a real game but the length of a demo. Games need replayability and a good amount of hours (say £20 gets us 10 hours, i want at least 3-4-5 hours for £6-10. Thats a lot of money on an app that wont be used again once it is completed. You forget £20 games can be traded in again, reclaiming at least 25% of what you paid.
Its the careful balance of quality versus quantity that we’re looking for here.

I wasnt complaining at the cost far from it! However in contrast to other games in the store its expensive, though frankly im enjoying it too much to care. With more “proper” games coming into the app store lately at higher price ranges this will become more common. If you look back just a few months it was rare to get an app over four pounds.

Well, seeing as this game originally came out for the ds and was $30, this is VERY reasonably priced, and it has much better graphics. I was just playing it and it is great even though i’ve played the computer version of assassin’s creed. Definitely worth the price.
