in Games

[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - For the price of a cup of coffee ($3.99) people can now buy an app that turns your existing smartphone and computer into a fully functioning duel screen console! Available for the last couple of weeks on iPhone/iPod Touch via the App store Touchy has now launched on Android devices via the Google Play store.

Nitrome Touchy lets a user control full screen games on their computer using their smart phone as the controller. Your smart phone is more advanced than your typical video game console controller, bringing with it not just motion control and multi touch but also making duel screen gaming possible without the need to purchase new hardware.

The Touchy app not only allows for multiplayer action but is the only duel screen console where each user has their own screen opening up gameplay possibilities you won't even find on a certain new duel screen console this Christmas! Touchy is free to try with ‘Super Snot Put' so you can check and enjoy the experience before unlocking the full console and ten further games via the in app payment ($3.99).

Our 11th game ‘Swindler 2' has just launched for the service and shows of how the console can be used for creative new control schemes. Control a character hanging from a rope, tilt the phone to rotate the world gravity and use up and down buttons on the controller screen to adjust the length of the rope. Rope wrapping mechanics are order of the day as you navigate the traps and puzzles of each stage.

The remaining 10 launch games were built to show off various features of the device from the 1 to 1 throwing game ‘Super Snotput', the spell casting drawing game ‘Magic Touch', the Tilt to steer racing game ‘Flash cat' and 4 player beat-em-up ‘Double Edged'. There is something for everyone with 20 post launch games to be made available in the coming 6 months.
