Team 17 have today announced that they will be bringing the top-down classic Alien Breed on iOS platforms, featuring touch-screen pad controls, support the Ion iCade and Gametel Controller, and the opportunity to choose either old-school Amiga graphics or the new retina-display imagery.

Furthermore the game will bring three different sets of maps from the original 1991 Alien Breed, aid in the form of an in-game store for extra ammo, keys and weapons, and Game Center leaderboards and achievements.

Alien Breed is scheduled for release in August 2012 and will be available for iPad, iPhone (3GS and above) and iPod Touch (3rd Gen or better).
