Hi all... I used to play MAN2 some back in '05 & '06. Loved the game, loved the simple rules & incredible strategy. I had to quit because I just didn't have enough time to play.

Lately I've been spending far more time playing games on my iPhone then I have on my PC. I was trying to find a good strategy game, and I realized I want Massive Assault on the iPhone!

Other then simplifying the graphics, I think the iPhone could handle a MA type game easily. Do you think Wargaming.net would or is considering a port or dedicated game for the iPhone?

That is an awesome idea....

Would be great if you could play same game on laptop - or iphone - depending where you are....

Cathing a train or bus to work - do a quick turn,

then the next day do a turn on the laptop.

sounds like a great way to raise more funds for more maps :)

IN PROGRESS...

That is very good news. I will buy it.

I wouldn't worry about eyeglasses, the iPhone zooms & pans pretty nice. I hope they concentrate on playabilty first though, not fancy graphics. I'd be fine with a top-down map with icons, no 3-D at all.

Any news about iPhone client?

I also had to stop playing due to time constraints, but would definately be back on mobile! Anything to do with Java client?

I would definatley consider making a comeback if I could play on my iPhone. That way I could play during "dead" time instead of family time (ie during bus rides, train rides etc).

I would consider a return if there was an iPhone client.

Dear Ravermeister & Rocklizard there is a problem with client for IPhone because Iphone do not support Java, but probably it will be possible to use MAN in phones with android platform.

Probably Bambr and Jedi Knight will answer bit better on this question.

I still think that the iPhone would be a great way to earn new cash.....
the app would cost extra - but you could log into your PC account
if java doesnt work - then use another language...

there is a game called settlers of Catan which is turn based - and it uses zoom and menus very well.
Same could be used for MAN2 on iphone...

Its a new mass market - even at $4.99 per download - your whole world is your market and you already have the rules and server set up.....

iphones are the future - man2 dev's should hire an iphone programmer to do this - so they can make more money and keep the game going.

Super idea. I would buy it 10 min after it appears. You are right - iphone or similar devices are the future. And the synergetic effect in order to earn money should be tremendous. And later this year the apple ipad appears. Imagine playing MAN2 on such a soft touch screen device! Incredible!

This should be the direction of future MAN. (and new maps of course :))

Come on devs, even a simple iPhone interface will do to begin with.

Interesting...Topic began in 2008.
Much interest and comment on smart ideas.
Is this a dead issue?
Personally, my laptop is as small and portable as I want to get, but looks like many others(and younger crowd) would eat it up. :)

Almost purchased an iphone, and I can see how valuable it would be to have access to MAN2 play.
Seems like the thing to do :)
