Mirrors Edge, one of the most underrated games of 2009 will soon be making its way to the App Store. Not only did the console/PC game have an unbelievable amount of style (and one of the best original musical scores ever), it also brought a whole new style of play to the gaming world. The iPhone/iPod Touch version looks to continue that effort when it is released in April of this year. EA’s recent media release announced a couple of new details which are listed below. It’s hard to not think of a side scrolling, jumping game without mentioning Canabalt, but the graphics and style that are shown in the screenshots speak for themselves. We here at iPhone Gamer Blog are really looking forward to this one.
For a pretty amazing sample of what I think we will be seeing, check out this link which will allow you to play an online version of Mirrors Edge 2D – http://mirrorsedge2d.com/
