[MobilePRwire] – Pilot’s Path, an old school top down view helicopter flying game, goes free for a limited time through the weekend sale by Happymagenta. It’s one of a very few games that was specially crafted to really make a full use of TV Out and AirPlay technologies. Pilot’s Path creates a real console gaming experience when played on a big screen TV, or even if just a second iOS device is used as a remote wireless joystick controller via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
Happymagenta makes Pilot’s Path, its beautifully crafted and visually stunning TV Out and AirPlay enabled old school helicopter flying game, free through the weekend sale, starting Friday, Mar 1st.
The search and rescue, gather and trade gameplay guides a player through the story of a former USAF pilot, which, dishonorably discharged after an accident with an expensive military plane, makes his way back to the sky doing missions for criminal underground bosses – the path is nicely rendered and lies through beautiful cut scenes.
“Creating Pilot’s Path we wanted a game that would really use amazing possibilities the iOS platform gives. It’s too bad, nowadays there are only a very few games using TV Out and AirPlay beyond simple screen mirroring, not fully employing extra screen space in multi-device configurations. To our knowledge, today Pilot’s Path is so far the only game that puts it all together in a right way.” – says Alexander Novoselov, the co-founder and CEO of Happymagenta.
As an excellent technical demonstration of iOS possibilities, Pilot’s Path is a like collectible gem, a must have for passionate gamers, that have more than one iOS device, or have either Apple TV or any of TV Out cables.
Gamers possessing an Apple TV, a TV Out cable, or just several iOS devices deserve a better gaming experience – Pilot’s Path is a game that is perfectly and with technical excellence making full use of TV Out and AirPlay, as well as using another iOS device as a wireless joystick.
Multi-device configurations in Pilot’s Path are extremely easy to set up.
Connecting to a big screen TV or a projector is as easy as plugging the TV Out cable in or turning the AirPlay on, and then selecting an appropriate screen resolution. Last, an exclusive feature of Pilot’s Path, traditional for PC gaming, yet uncommon for iOS games, allows smoother video frame rate over slow Wi-Fi with no bandwidth enough for Full HD video streaming. A local screen is then used to display extra info and as a touch controller.
Connecting a remote wireless joystick is easy as tapping a “Remote” button in the game. The process is fully automatic and requires neither a shaman dancing nor any extra setup. The game and all menus are fully managed remotely and, in case the connection is dropped, it automatically restores – no need to leave a cozy sofa to change game settings, to save or load the game, or to reconnect after answering a phone call.
Pilot’s Path is a universal app, so each installation can be either a server or a remote on any iOS device. It’s also pretty enjoyable without TV Out using just iPad as a server and iPhone or iPod touch as a wireless joystick controller, and is optimized for retina display of all Apple devices. There is no lag or delays and wirelessly controlled game is very responsive via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
Pilot’s Path is compatible with all types of TV Out cables, screen resolutions and AirPlay enabled devices. Each iOS device compatible with TV Out and AirPlay can be a streaming video server. Each compatible iOS device can be a local video server, controlled remotely with any other iOS device.
