While a StarCraft game for the iPhone and iPad would be hugely popular, Blizzard has said they have no current plans to release such a game. As an alternative, one developer is planning to bring StarCraft II to the iPhone and iPad in a unique way. The graphics of StarCraft II require hardware that no iDevice, and most Macs, can provide. Trying to remote control a computer running the game would be buggy and slow. To get around these hurdles, this developer decided to create a completely different interface for the game. sc2gameboard.com, leading up to the application's release. While we have seen several apps that use the iPhone as a controller for an iPad or website game, this is one of the first examples of using an iDevice as a secondary controller for a full-fledged RTS game. What do you think? Are you excited to use your iDevice with StarCraft II, or is there another game for which you would like to see a similar app? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
