Farewell to Lemmings on iPhone – Macitynet.it
Just a few days ago we told you the news that the Mobile1UP development team was about to publish a free port of Lemmings on the iPhone and iPod Touch, which exactly replicated the graphics and levels of the original. Unfortunately, the expectations of long-time fans have been pulverized by the intervention of Sony, the true and only owner of the rights to use the franchise; the company allegedly sent a letter of injunction to Aaron Ardini of Mobile1UP, ordering him to block the publication of Lemmings and not work on any other porting of Sony games.
With his back to the wall, Ardini can only give up and, at least for now, Lemmings will no longer be released on the App Store. However, the developer said he was open to any type of negotiation, even proposing to Sony to work with them to create an official and paid port of the game. If the Japanese company decides to accept the proposal, we will know very soon.
