    Motion Tennis by rolocule(sp)?

    You airplay/mirror to your apple tv (it requires an apple tv) and the phone becomes a tennis racket ala wii tennis. It fills your TV not quite widescreen, and gives you wii console caliber graphics.

    The game is not that good in my opinion but the engine and concept are fun. I bought it to support the developers and the idea, if you have an apple tv you will get a kick out of it.

    I don't have an iPhone to try it with but wouldn't the lag between the phone and the apple TV make it almost unplayable?

    I played it with my 5s and I didn't experience lag. It was fun and I hope its the start of things to come with Metal looming.

    Maybe the motion co-processor in the 5S is utilized?

    I have just tried it using my iPhone 5 and must say it is very good. I did not experience any lag worth mentioning, although the game did freeze once, but just for a second...

    I've done the same with a iPhone 5 and a 2nd-gen ATV. I did experience the occasional tiny touch of lag, for which I compensated by swinging early as advised in the intro, and a temporary "freeze" or two during swift motion (like a hard serve).

    Still, very nice proof of concept. Rather Wii-like, without having to invest in yet another gaming console. Looking forward to the Dance Party one.

    You wanted it we got it.

    Great news guys you wanted more games. We made our best one yet. Wii like bowling comes to your iPhone.

    Its called Bowling Central and its fun.

    Let me know your feedback. Would also request any of the members to create a new thread regarding the same on Apple TV forum because as a dev I cant do that.

    Cheers
