id Software co-founder John Carmack announced that an iOS-exclusive spinoff title for the company's upcoming first-person shooter RAGE will soon debut for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The announcement follows up on Carmack's recent keynote presentation at QuakeCon, during which he demonstrated the RAGE gameplay engine running at 60 frames per second on iPhone hardware. Carmack describes the upcoming Mutant Bash TV as an arcade-styled first-person shooter featuring many elements from the console and PC version of RAGE. "The little slice of RAGE that we decided to build the iPhone product around is 'Mutant Bash TV', a post apocalyptic combat game show in the RAGE wasteland," Carmack writes at the official Bethesda Blog. "This is the perfect setup for a quintessential first person shooter game play experience — you pick your targets, aim your shots, time your reloads, dodge the bad guys, and try and make it through to the end of the level with a better score than last time." Carmack continues: "Beyond basic survival, there are pickups, head shots, and hit streak multipliers to add more options to the gameplay, and there is a broad range of skill levels available from keep-hitting-fire-and-you-should-make-it to almost-impossible." Mutant Bash TV will be Carmack's second iOS-exclusive title. Last year, id Software released Doom Resurrection, a rail shooter created using existing Doom 3 assets. Mutant Bash TV will be released in the App Store later this month for 99 cents, with a $1.99 HD edition also available for the iPad, iPhone 4, and fourth-generation iPod Touch devices. The console and PC version of RAGE is slated for release in September of next year.
