Marathon Infinity [App Store], the final game of Marathon trilogy, was released this week on the App Store as a free Universal app. It comes with all the levels, including 5 secret levels, in low resolution early 90’s graphic. There are optional in app purchase: unlocks HD Mode $1.99, Master Chief Mode $0.99, and Enhanced Reticules $0.99.

The Marathon saga — Marathon 1 [download], Marathon 2: Durandal [download], and Marathon Infinity — was available on the Mac first. It revolutionized first person shooters by including an interesting story. It is also one of the first games to include 3 axis mouse look, when PC shooters such as Doom were limited to moving horizontally.

Like the other Marathon titles ported to iOS, the developer did a nice job porting the game over. However, I don’t like the gameplay due to the game age:

  • Old physics, level design, AI
  • Game control originally made for mouse and keyboard

Maybe someone could remake it with modern physics?
