Voltron iPhone Game Unfortunately Doesn't Require Five People To Play

Sony's Voltron iPhone game looks interesting, because you get to pilot the separate lions in 2/3 isometric view, and in a head to head fighter mode, but ultimately disappointing. Why? Because you can't get four friends and make a Voltron.

The screenshots also show the inherent problem of having a touchscreen be your screen and your control interface. It's much worse here, with the buttons taking up a good 1/4 or 1/3 of the real estate. But it is only $4, and if you're the kind of guy who enjoys games based on series that are more than 20 years old, boy has Sony Pictures got the app for you.

Seriously, how awesome would it be to have 5 person multiplayer over Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, using the iPhone 3.0 SDK, with one person piloting a piece of Voltron? Then you could join together and then do some crazy junk. Pew pew. [iTunes]
