Asteroid Dogfight Local Multiplayer Game:
I’m really interested in the split screen multitouch paradigm, and I think its a really fun way to game. This game comes from the 50 game ideas jam.
I’m thinking of a dogfight game in the asteroids style kind of 360 degree movement with thrust. Ships are very small relative to map size. You can lay traps, fire bullets, maybe some sort of team type game.
Each play has a ship on their iDevice that they can control thrusters/boost/weapons on. a shared battlefield map is displayed on a projector/TV
