HermitWorks has also announced a new iPhone/iPod Touch title, this one an adaptation of the company's 3D trading game, Space Trader. Scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2009 Space Trader: Moon Madness will allow phone users to pursue their fortunes as an interstellar trader, with the goal of making as much money as possible within the time limit.

More about Space Trader: Moon Madness

Space Trader: Moon Madness is a 3D trading game set in a science-fiction universe. The game offers you the chance to seek out power and riches as you become increasingly proficient as an interstellar trader of highly sought after merchandise. Assume the role of a Space Trader trying to make a profit buying and selling commodities, everything from medical supplies to food and precious metals. The goal is to make as much money possible within the time limit. Visit various locations in search of the best deal and be sure to look for side quests to help you achieve the highest score.
Innovative first person controls:
Space Trader: Moon Madness uses the same dual-analog controls that most gamers used to first person console games are already used to. The left pad controls movement through the level, while the right pad controls the direction that the player faces. Tapping on a character while standing near them initiates dialogue. Icons along the top of the screen open different screens relating to Travel, Contact Lists, Mission Log, Inventory, and Finances. These first person controls are very easy to pick up and get into the game... a first on the iPhone.
Fully interactive and explorable environments:
Able to travel anywhere in the level, upstairs and down in a fully 3D world. Meet new contacts, find bonus items and discover secrets. There are no invisible barriers or arbitrary limits in Space Trader: Moon Madness
Large sized game on a small size device:
Space Trader is designed with replayability in mind.  The variety of characters and price fluctuating commodities make each player experience unique. Random disasters and missions with multiple outcomes scenarios create a new experience each time you play the game on your iPhone.
Challenge yourself to unlock all the achievements in Space Trader: Moon Madness. Compete with friends and rivals to see who can discover every secret first.
Aspyr's VooDude is available now from Apple's iPhone App Store for $0.99. Pricing for HermitWork's Space Trader: Moon Madness is not yet available.
