    [FONT=&quot]MacRumors reports today that Bungie has confirmed via an interview with iOS developer Daniel Blezek on Bungie.net that it is porting legendary Mac FPS Marathon to the iPad. Apparently the project has been in the works since mid 2010, and was due for release originally in fall 2010, but was held up by legal issues regarding the distribution of the original Marathon level packs.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]In the interview, Blezek says that he was inspired to start developing an iPad port of the classic Mac game when he was playing the trilogy at the time that the iPad was announced and started thinking about the possibilities. Here’s Blezek telling Bungie what he finds so special about the game:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]According to MacRumors, Marathon for iPad has already been submitted to the App Store, so its release should be imminent. And do you want some even better news than that? It’s going to be free to download too![/FONT]
