Aspyr has figured out how to shrink an entire galaxy (one far, far away, of course) onto the iPhone and iPod; all the Wookies, Jawas, Jedis, Tusken Raiders and bounty hunters — all now made tinier as Aspyr updates the previously iPad-only Knights of the Old Republic as a Universal App.
To celebrate this feat of quantum mechanics (or simple coding, your pick) Aspyr has slashed the app’s price in half, from $10 to $5.
If you haven’t experienced the decade-old, lightsaber-heavy RPG yet, now’s the time to grab a copy; we’re not sure how well its hybrid turn-based/realtime combat system will translate onto a 4-inch screen, but we’re curious to find out.
Brining KOTOR to the really small screen is the headline feature of the new upgrade, but there’re also new features like: an updated UI for the iPhone/iPod, shadow effects on the Retina iPads and the iPhone 5s and extra lighting effects for the iPad Air and iPhone 5s. There’s even “experimental” — read: probably a little sketchy — support for those new iPhone game controllers (like this one).
For those of you with an iPhone 4 or older, just forget you ever read this, because KOTOR won’t work on your device.
