John CarmackThe iPhone has a serious ally in id Software's John Carmack, the genius behind the company's graphics engines and technology. The first two titles, Wolfenstein 3D Classic and Doom Resurrection, are just the beginning. Up next? Doom, Quake, Quake II, Quake III, and some version of id's forthcoming Rage.

Also, expect an iPhone version of Wolfenstein RPG.

Personally, I'm very interested in how Quake III will run on the iPhone and if it will support a worthwhile multiplayer experience over peer-to-peer or infrastructure. ngmoco certainly proved that the device can run the engine with KillTest (previously known as LiveFire), but how will the gameplay hold up?

In fact, Carmack is heading up the company's iPhone venture himself and even hopes to port a functioning version of id Tech 5's content creation pipeline on the iPhone 3GS. I guess we'll see just how powerful the little machine is when Carmack digs into Apple's platform.

This also raises the question: do you want graphically intensive games on your iPhone? I'm split. It's nice to see what a platform can do, but I'd rather have quick, enjoyable games.
