Classic '90s adventure game Little Big Adventure is coming to the App Store at midnight

Twenty years after its original PC release, the classic adventure game Little Big Adventure is being re-released on the App Store at midnight tonight.

Little Big Adventure follows the story of Twinsen, an inhabitant of Citadel Island. His world is ruled over by the evil - and oddly named - dictator Dr. FunFrock. When Twinsen starts to have dreams about the destruction of his planet, the doctor throws him into an insane asylum.

Taking control of Twinsen, it's up to you to help his escape from captivity, and discover his destiny as protector of his world.

The new iOS release features a host of updates for touchscreen. Firstly, the dev has streamlined the interface for touchscreen, and thrown in some tutorials to help newcomers through the opening stages.

As Little Big Adventure also features platforming and combat sections on top of the standard adventure-game puzzle fare, there has also been an overhaul to some of the more active sequences, with the team simplifying sections that might be cumbersome with touch controls.

LIttle Big Adventure is already available in New Zealand, and will reach the rest of the world at midnight. It'll cost you £2.49 / $3.99.

We only able to tune in to the live cast for a couple of minutes. Was the game really that bad?

"Bad" ist not the right word.
Just looks so outdated and clumsy nowadys.

It just hasn't aged very well for my taste

I played the original, as well as its successor on PC back then and loved it.
Not sure though if I will get it for iOS. Maybe if reviews are reaaaally good ...
