When we reviewed Real Racing 2 HD, we knew an update was coming out, but it hit the same day our review did. The good news? Real Racing 2 HD got 5 stars, so the score literally couldn't improve. The even better news? The update has blessed it with spectacular-looking 1080p output support on the iPad 2.
Real Racing HD was the first real wow-inducing game at the original iPad launch, so it's fitting that the sequel serves the exact same purpose for the iPad 2. Though you can certainly play this grand simulation on the first iPad, owners of Apple's new tablet will see an extra sparkle to the robust visual upgrade, with sharp details popping out from the more vibrant backdrops and licensed cars, which uniformly replace the mostly generic lineup of the first game.
Firemint, the studio behind Flight Control and Real Racing, released a video today showcasing a new update they're working on that displays their latest Real Racing title running in full 1080p HD via a video out cable to an HDTV. Few things we've ever seen have so completely convinced us that dedicated video game consoles are outdated technology.
Apple’s iPad 2 is finally in the hands of enthusiastic customers -- and gamers are most certainly among them. In addition to a faster dual-core A5 processor and a new graphics engine that claims a nine-fold improvement, the iPad 2 is also now rocking a gyroscope, which iOS developers are already starting to take advantage of.
Here’s a look at the few, the proud, the first barrage of gyroscope-enabled games that have arrived with the iPad 2 -- as well as a few iPhone 4 classics to tide you over while developers work to update their HD equivalents.
Ordinarily, when a developer finds success with a particular game, their follow up project generally follows in a similar genre. Kairosoft's announcement of Hot Springs Story is a perfect example. However, Firemint seems to have no qualms about continually reinventing themselves. Their new game is titled Agent Squeek and stars an adorable secret agent mouse.
