As a test to see how easy it would be to get the isometric engine running on WP7 I created a new WP7 xna game project.

Using the project I converted the isometric engine into a Wp7 game libary project and added a reference.

I then need a method to gather the users input so they can control the game.

This was easier than I suspected, all I had to do is detect where the user is clicking on the screen, check if it falls in the bounds of a button and that the last state was released.

I've seen some of these images before on a XNA tutorial website for creating the exact same thing so unless you made the tutorial then you stole the images.

I'm liking the sound of this project, tracking :)

Btw, shouldn't this be listed as an engine rather than a game? :P

It being turned into a game, but Im also hopping that the engine will be re-usable.

3) Save Map
4) Load Map
5) Collision detection by tile type
6) Layers
7) Movable objects
8) Interactive objects
9) Play animations
10) Level editor
