Russian developer HeroCraft might be better known right now for its Java mobile phone games, but the team behind such classic titles as Bikini Balls and Erotic Galaxy now sets its sights on a bigger target. They've announced that a version of PC strategy game Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim will be the company's first full-resolution game for the iPad, offering up this initial screenshot, which is in no way just an iPhone graphic with game graphics pasted onto it.

"We're impressed by the new Apple tablet device" said Alexey Sazonov, Sales and Marketing Director at HeroCraft, "we believe it will provide the ideal platform for gaming, filling the gap between traditional desktop and mobile phone devices. Coming from a strong PC background 'Majesty' will work tremendously well on a high resolution portable device like the iPad."

And it certainly could, but first the game will arrive on Java, Android, and BlackBerry handsets, with the iPad version following soon after.

And so the bandwagon slowly begins to fill.

"We're impressed by the new Apple tablet device" said Alexey Sazonov, Sales and Marketing Director at HeroCraft, "we believe it will provide the ideal platform for gaming..."

The problem with marketing bs like this is when it's so obviously untrue. The general consensus is that the tablet is a far cry from ideal. So what is to be gained from stating this, even if it is just for the sake of talking up your product? It's aggravating and just makes me think less of the company as a whole. It begs the question how could they possibly make a decent game when they can't see the obvious factors that make the tablet less than ideal as a gaming platform?
