[prMac.com] Reims, France - xReva Software is pleased to announce the release of xReva GAMEPAD. xReva GAMEPAD allows users to turn their iPad into a next gen touch controller for their PC games (and Mac games soon).
"Just forget your keyboard and discover a completely new way to interact with your games. In addition to the mouse xReva GAMEPAD allows your other hand to have at its disposal an outstanding touch game controller!" said Fabrice Arnould, founder of xReva Software.
Controlled By Gestures:
xReva GAMEPAD allows gamers to make the most of the powerfulness of a touch screen for their games. They can use a choice of different gestures to activate actions. For example: swipe 3 fingers upwards to throw a grenade, swipe 2 fingers downwards to crouch down, swipe the thumb to the left to reload etc. This makes it possible to do a lot of actions one after the other quickly and easily, without looking for the key and without losing sight of the screen.
xReva GAMEPAD provides a steering pad to control the movements (forward, backward, left, right) and sprint with just one finger! The steering pad and gestures can be combined: it is possible to do many actions with gestures and control the movements of the character simultaneously.
Ergonomic And Simple User Interface:
When users touch the iPad, the steering pad automatically appears under the index and the gestures can be achieved over a large touch area. This allows users to place their hand naturally on the iPad, without having to reach a defined space and without losing sight of the screen. The layout is fully reversible for left-handed persons. The user's manual is integrated into the application and short contextual guidance will help users for a quick start up.
Direct Button Identification:
Buttons are available in addition with gestures. All of them have an icon representing their function. Therefore gamers are able to find the right one quickly. They no longer need to have the game manual open next to them or to have to put the game on pause to find the corresponding key!
Game Profiles Ready To Play:
xReva GAMEPAD provides game profiles ready to play for most popular FPS / action / adventure / RPG games. A lot of game profiles ready to play are already available. New game profiles will be added regularly and will be automatically downloaded on the iPad. The app can be also used with other games. For this, users simply have to set the key bindings section of the game to assign functions to the corresponding keys and/or gestures of the generic game profile provided.
Many other features like "Profiles personalization" are already under development.
