Deep Green First Look

John Gruber at Daring Fireball reports the release of a new chess game for the iPhone/Touch. Interestingly, this is the second “Deep Green”, by developer Joachim Bondo, for an Apple portable device. The game’s name comes from the platform the original was made for’”the Newton.

We’ve seen a lot of ports from other mobile platforms onto the iPhone, but this is the first we’re aware of from Apple’s own previous mobile offering.

To be fair, is in fact a complete rewrite, and shares only its name and minimalist asthetic with the Newton version.

We’ll take a closer look at Deep Green soon, so stay tuned.
