Quake has long been available for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches, and now it is making it ways to un-jailbroken devices via the App Store. The game was submitted and the process takes a few days to clear through Apple. There is a catch to this though, if Apple decides not to allow the game it could prevent it from becoming available to all of us. There is however, no reason it should not be allowed as id software has previously made Quake 3 available under General Public License.
The game is played via touch screen and was originally slated to use the accelerometer, but was changed as it did not work as well as the developer had hoped. The game runs as well as expected and allows players to make their way through the entire game. There is no word on wireless or internet play over 3g, but we are guessing this will not be supported. If it is supported, it could make this a killer app. Lets hope Apple lets this through for us all to enjoy as it will be offered free.
