Now You Can Play Knights Of The Old Republic On The iPhone

In May of this year, one of the greatest Star Wars stories ever told made the jump from PC and old consoles to the iPad. Today Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic finally went universal, with a host of new features to welcome iPhone and iPod Touch players into the fold.

Along with support for the iPhone 4S and greater and 5th generation iPod Touches, the iOS version of KOTOR now supports the iPad 2, since it's officially Apple's budget model.

Enhancements to the new version include:

  • Improved graphics Shadows are now enabled for all Retina iPad models and the iPhone 5s.
  • Enhanced lighting — Bloom effects are now enabled for iPhone 5s and iPad Air/iPad mini with Retina models.
  • Widescreen support Play the game on iPhone and iPod touch in true (not cropped) widescreen.
  • Updated UI The game's interface and text have been optimised for iPhone and iPod touch screens.
  • Controller support Experimental implementation for Made for iPhone (MFi) controllers.

Want to give the game a spin? It's on sale right now for $4.99 on iTunes, or you can just use one of the four code links I hid in the text above.

    CURSE YOU! This should be on android! Come on!

      Yeah, I'd hardly describe being available for iOS as going "universal". That kind of implies it's available for all operating systems.

    Plays very nicely on the iPad Air :) Shadows don't always seem to be there though thus far, could vary on the indoor lighting

    The character avatars could do with a bit of a polish, very blurry/pixelated compared to an overall clean look whilst playing

    Been playing this for a while on my 3rd gen ipad. Apart from not so great running controls, it's a great port, it's great kicking back on the lounge for an hour or so and getting my jedi on.

    Android & GOG & Vita!

    This game was fantastic back in the day. Got me onto RPGs
