Infinity Field HD First App to Include Multiplayer Joypad Support

Infinity Field HD, a space shooter from Forzefield Studios, has been updated with extensive Joypad support. Joypad is a separate app that allows gamers to control supported games on an iPad or Mac from their iPhone, turning it into a wireless virtual controller with a configurable set of buttons.

Infinity Field HD is the first app to include multiplayer Joypad support, allowing two players to play the game in co-op multiplayer mode on one iPad while controlling it from two iPhones, as shown in this video:


iOS developers have been pushing the boundaries of what's possible on Apple's gaming platform. Last year, Firemint used AirPlay to project a game on a television via an AppleTV, and used an iPad as a second screen to control the game.

Infinity Field is available for the iPhone or the iPad, for $0.99 or $1.99 respectively on the App Store. Joypad is free, while Joypad Elite is $11.99 and includes a number of skins from classic console controllers. Select skins are available via in-app purchase from the main Joypad app, as well.

this would be great if you could instal games on the AppleTV that run on the appleTV but are controlled with an iPhone or iPad, i think games like scrabble, yatzee, monopoly (just to name a few) would be great if they ran that way rather than with the lag of airplay mirroring

Pretty sure 'Gamepad' for FIFA 12 was out before this...
