    The upcoming cyperpunk-themed first-person shooter Neon Shadow includes a unique multiplayer mode that allows two users to play on a single iPad, according to our sister-site TouchArcade.

    There is no information on pricing, but Neon Shadow is expected by the end of summer.

    This would never work with me. I'd constantly be ripping the iPad out of the hands of the other player. Well, at least flinching and messing up the other player.

    Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "head-to-head"!







    ...I'm sorry.

    One of the first games I played for the iPhone was an air hockey game that let 2 players defend their own goal.

    But I guess this is two separate huds and whatnot

    So other games shouldn't do this, then?

    This doesnt seem like it will go as planned. People will probably get "intense" or jumpy and in the way they handle the controls they could easily disturb the other player.

    Looks like a Great game.

    Hope it will also have single player mode and coop mode on multiple devices.

    Imagine a long time in the silent waiting room at the doctor/dentist with two 10 year old kids and only 1 iPad ...

    I guess they mean it's the first time for an FPS type of game?

    First for an FPS, as far as we can tell, and it's been said many, many times that we do not take paid placement and if we did, it would be disclosed.

    With that gameplay I'd only be willing to pay half as much as their asking price. Or maybe I could split it with my opponent.

    wow, had been missing this for a while. we need more games like this, you cant the pleasure of playing a multiplayer game on a single device from playing a multiplayer game on two different devices.
