[prMac.com] Pune, India - Rolocule Games today announced that Dance Party is now available to download for free on iPhone and iPod touch from the Apple App Store worldwide. Dance Party is powered by rolomotion™ - The Edison Award winning motion-tracking technology for smartphones that allows users to play mobile games using natural motion gestures on bigger screens like HD TV, Mac or PC using AirPlay Mirroring. Dance Party is a multiplayer rhythm game where users mimic the movement of onscreen dancers on TV while rolomotion™ precisely tracks their iOS devices' movements as they dance, to provide real time feedback.
On gaming consoles like Wii or Playstation Move, the number of people who can simultaneously play a game physically is often limited - either by the number of motion controllers that the consoles supports or just the physical unavailability of enough motion controllers. In Dance Party, on the other hand, multiple users can connect iOS devices they already own, using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and dance together at the same time. Moreover, all personal statistics like calories burnt etc. of each user during multiplayer dance will stay on their iOS device, as opposed to traditional standalone motion controllers that are merely used for detecting gestures.
Dance Party streams to HD TV using AirPlay mirroring and has further reduced mirroring lag giving 2x better mirroring performance as compared to Motion Tennis - company's first rolomotion™ powered game released last year. Moreover, with recent announcement by Apple at WWDC to support Peer-to-Peer Airplay Mirroring with iOS 8, mirroring performance is expected to get even better.
"Mobile games are an isolated experience in our living rooms today. Dance Party provides an opportunity for everybody to have fun together as a group using their smartphones without the need to buy any additional gaming hardware or console," said, Rohit Gupta, CEO of Rolocule Games. "Dance Party promises to bring the most accurate motion tracking as well as most immersive fun dance experience on iPhone"
In addition to real time multiplayer, Dance Party will also feature turn based multiplayer for local dance tournaments, blind mode for expert dancers, single player mode to just dance and online dance offs. Users can also incorporate the game into their daily workout routines as it tracks the calories burnt per session by day, week and month with impending integration of the newly announced HealthKit in iOS 8. Dance Party is perfect to party with friends, enjoy family game nights, keep a healthy lifestyle or to just dance.
