When the hit desktop game Dynamite Jack made its debut on the iPad a little over a month ago, I thought it was only a matter of time before it landed on the iPhone too. Now, I'm glad to report that I've been proved right. That's right, the top-down stealth adventure game Dynamite Jack has blasted onto the iPhone. And no, Dynamite Jack for iPhone is not a new, separately sold app. Rather, Dynamite Jack creator Phil Hassey generously opted to simply update the iPad edition with universal support. This means that if you already own Dynamite Jack on your iPad, the new iPhone edition is waiting to be downloaded on your iPhone (or iPod touch) at no additional cost. All of the features available on the iPad are made available on the iPhone: the main game, the map editor, and the community maps. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. What's more, Phil is holding a special promo in celebration of the launch of Dynamite Jack for iPhone:
[F]or 48 hours following the launch, I'm going to have a big link in the "Community Maps" section to a page where all iOS players can get a code to download Dynamite Jack DRM-Free for Win/Mac/Linux AND get a Steam code for Win/Mac. I always get a handful of emails from people saying "I bought it on the iPad, can I get it on the PC free?", so I figure, hey, this is a great way to sort that.A great way, indeed. For detailed instructions on how to get your download code, just refer to the image below. Dynamite Jack for iPad and now for iPhone as well is available in the App Store for $2.99. There appears to be no word yet on iCloud integration for syncing games across iDevices. But I suppose it's only a matter of time before that, too, finds its way to Dynamite Jack.
