[GAMING] Yeti 3D Gets Resurrected For iPod

Posted by Eric March on January 21, 2008

Yeti 3Dmodmyifone member Marco Giorgini (kmarco71) has successfully resurrected Derek J. Evans’ old and long-defunct GPL’ed 3D engine known as Yeti 3D and ported it to the iPhone and iPod Touch. As it stands right now it is mainly a proof-of-concept. There isn’t much game to speak of; you can move around, jump and shoot at the one (blocky) enemy that’s included, but there is no goal, multitouch has not yet been implemented (so no jumping while moving) and there are some texture warping/shearing issues to take care of, not to mention the dodgy controls. Nonetheless, this is only the initial release. The performance is quite acceptable, though I am sure further optimization will be forthcoming, and the visuals are quite good as it stands. This will be one project whose development I will be watching with interest.
