iPod generation can get Lost

TV-based game comes to fifth generation iPods

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

iPod owners, bored of watching the latest Lost episode in post-it-note o'vision, can now enter the immersive world of Lost thanks to Gameloft, whose game of the TV series is now available on iTunes.

You too can experience what it's like to wake up next to a crashed plane and run around in small circles following indicator arrows and solving pitifully simple puzzles (according to reviews already posted to the UK iTunes store).

Most of the games so far available for the iPod have been basic, puzzle-based time fillers rather than "sit down and play" experiences, and this may be reflected in the perceived simplicity of the puzzles in Lost - the reviewers expected something comparable to a console game, while the authors were trying to make the wait for the bus more entertaining.

But if you want to see "faithfully reproduced settings, intuitive and extremely varied gameplay" all reproduced in post-it-note o'vision, Lost will set you back £3.99 from iTunes. ®
