We’re right on the cusp of a torrent of games to be released for the iPod touch and iPhone, but the regular iPod still has some life left in it as a game console. Square Enix on Tuesday announced the release of Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes, a role playing game (RPG) for the iPod. It costs $4.99.
You are Ziggy, and you embark on a journey to rescue your brother from the Mechanical Militia. The game features an epic story and a tactics-based battle system, turning your iPod’s own songs into “Tune Troopers” that you control in battle.
Tune Trooper capabilities are determined by the songs used to create them — you, as Ziggy, control them like a conductor, and use contraptions found on the map to win the battle.
The game is playable on iPod nano with video, iPod classic and fifth-generation iPod models.
