Original Tomb Raider launched for iOS

Square Enix has launched the original Tomb Raider as an iOS app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

The original Tomb Raider can be played on any touchscreen iOS device running iOS 7 or later and is available to download now from the App Store.

“Here at last! The original genre defining adventure Tomb Raider now available for your iPad and iPhone”, reads the App Store information.

Priced at 69p, the original Tomb Raider has been ported into a touchscreen version of the original game first released in 1996.

Influential at the time, the game mixes puzzles, platform and combat elements as you follow Lara Croft’s exploits to discover ancient treasures.

Unfortunately there’s no word on an Android version of the game as yet.

The app launch follows the announcement that the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot will be making its way onto Xbox One and PS4 on January 31 2014, known as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

The next-generation version of the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot will come with all the DLC packs already released on Xbox 360 and PS3.

“See Lara Croft like never before. With every bead of sweat, strand of hair, and article of clothing delivered in obsessive detail. Endure a stunningly reimagined island, fraught with new, unforgiving storms, and alive with motion,” reads the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition blurb.
