Following the success of the recent Tomb Raider reboot, Square Enix has now released the original Tomb Raider game for iOS. The port, officially titled Tomb Raider I, is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and has been tweaked to better suit touch controls. It also comes with full Logitech PowerShell and MOGA Ace Power MFI game controller support.

After originally being introduced on MS-DOS, PlayStation and Sega Saturn in 1996, Lara Croft when on to star in a number of games leading all the way up to the latest Crystal Dynamics origin story. The original Tomb Raider game has also seen a couple of re-releases and ports since the mid-nineties debut, in 2003 the first mobile port of the game released for the Nokia N-Gage, followed by a North American PSN release in 2009 (2010 in Europe).

The game was both a critical and commercial success as well as being an extremely influential title in the game development world, having since paved the way for many of the major action adventure titles we still play today.

Here's a quick reminder of what Lara is getting up to in the game:

The lost city of Atlantis and ancient Egyptian pyramids are ripe for discovery: explore every hidden dark crevice and impossible heights; enter into strange, undiscovered lands and solve their deepest, darkest mysteries…unleash a hail of bullets from your trademark dual pistols...the wilderness awaits with a wide range of enemies from bears to wolves, intriguing Atlantean centaurs and the terrifying T-Rex.

Those looking for a little touch of nostalgia (or those who have never had a chance to give this classic a go) can pick up Tomb Raider I on the App Store right now for $0.99.
