Sega announces Brick People for iOS

Oddball arcade machine goes portable.

Quirky arcade effort Brick People is coming to iOS, Sega has announced.

The original arcade machine, released back in 2009, tasked you with stacking real blocks in front of a screen to help the game's titular creatures reach food dotted around a stage. See the YouTube clip below for a closer look.

The iOS version, due out in the Autumn on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, replicates the concept, adding in touch screen controls, wi-fi multiplayer and Game Center support.

"The concept of using actual bricks to play a video game is unique, but it's instantly accessible, like handing somebody a set of blocks," commented Sega Digital VP Haruki Satomi.

"It's a timeless activity that resonates with everybody, and we know it's going to translate well to touch-screens."
