Lunar: Silver Star Story coming to iOS later this week

1 min read

Despite being announced for a release in September of last year, Lunar: Silver Star Story Touch will be making its way to iOS later this week.

Originally released on the Sega CD back in 1993, Lunar boasts animated cutscenes and enhanced sound that helped show off the CD hardware at the time.

Silver Star Story: Touch is not a mere emulation with touch controls added, but a port built specifically with touch devices in mind.

The port is being handled by SoMoGa, the same company responsible for porting fellow early 90s game, Vay, to the App Store.

Check out the trailer that accompanied the game’s announcement last year:

  • Have you played the Spiderweb Software games yet, Chris. Old school Baldur's Gate style games on the iPad – 'tis essential stuff.

    The Bar'd Tale is an awesome, funny, Diablo clone too.

  • You mean PS2, right, or is there a secret sequel that I've yet to play? :O

    Spiderweb's games replace mouse clicks with screen-tapping – they're ports of PC games. Not a virtual pad to be seen 🙂

  • Yeah, PS2 — it's been a long day!

    No virtual pad is a win for me! I'm only a few hours into the second act in Dragon Fantasy — multiple playable characters FTW — so I'll be good for a few more weeks, but after that, I'll be sure to give one of their games a go next. 🙂

  • I bought played and enjoyed Vay on IPhone, as old skool as it is.
    Is this what the developer has been working on all this time since!
    If so I expect nothing less than a masterful transition to iOS!

  • I've been playing it a little the last few days (not nearly as much as I would like, I must admit), and it's holding up really well.

    Stay tuned for a review in the next day or two!

    Thanks for dropping by!
