We've been waiting for a long time, and we weren't even all that sure it would ever happen. However, today we can enjoy the fruits of our patience as the Mac gaming classic Marathon releases on the App Store. Die-hard Marathon fans doubtlessly downloaded it for free on Mac ages ago, but today the series is open for a whole new generation to enjoy.
The developer of the iPad port of Marathon ran into some roadblocks last February while trying to bring the classic franchise up to date. Between some serious technical bugs, and some licensing problems he wasn't even completely sure his work would ever get released.
Apple lifers probably know the story of Marathon all too well at this point. The gaming series that made Mac gaming great in the mid-1990s could now possibly return on the iPad. However, the game's developer has reached a few roadblocks which are preventing the game's release as of now.
