FMV game 'Cobra Command' fully moving to iPhone

If you had asked us which modern gaming platform would become the home of laserdisc arcade games ... we wouldn't have guessed any mobile platform, much less a phone. But somehow, thanks to Space Ace and the upcoming Mad Dog McCree, the iPhone is the go-to platform for FMV.

The latest game to be revived for iPhone is Cobra Command, a 1984 FMV shooter by Data East that puts you in the cockpit of a helicopter. Developer Revolutionary Concepts is revamping the interface (including tilt-based steering) and cockpit graphics, and is projecting an October release date.

Rights holder G-mode seems to be working hard to get its Data East games out, including recent releases, like Magical Drop on multiple platforms, and the (still unofficial) Wii collection. We appreciate that.
