id Software confronts Epic Games in the mobile graphics battle

I've blogged several times about the port of the Unreal engine to the iPhone, including a recent post on Infinity Blade (the first game utilising the engine) just a few days ago. It seems however that Epic Games, the developers of the Unreal engine, have found a worthy rival as id Software (of Doom fame) have now announced a spin-off iPhone game, based on their upcoming Rage title which really pushes the limits on what can be done on the Apple device in terms of real-time graphics.

Titled Rage:Mutant Bash TV the game is hugely impressive (see video above) considering the limited hardware it runs on and moreover is supposed to be available this month. Finally, the legendary John Carmack himself is alleged to be involved in its development.
