iPhone game, Johnny Test: Roller Johnny plays across multiple screens

So you're someone who really likes their Apple devices and perhaps have two iPod Touches or two iPhones, or one of each lying around. If you haven't already figured out what you can do with one of those devices, if they're unused, here's something. Johnny Test: Roller Johnny is a game that uses Bluetooth technology to stretch across two iOS screens. The game can only be played with two screens in multiplayer mode, though single player mode is available for a single device. Players can even hook up two iPhones to an iPad for even larger playing space. The space automatically expands when one or more Bluetooth-enabled devices on which the game is already running is in range. Watch the video below for a demo of the game.


According to Mashable, the game is based on a character from Teletoon Canada, and the main character, Johnny and his friends have to roller skate to a finish line in a roller derby. You collect Bling Bling's bling for extra points. You can get extra time on the clock by grabbing power-ups. If you co-ordinate your moves in multiplayer mode, you can power up a sling to toss you and your friend ahead of the pack. The game is created by Kolody, who say that this is the first time a game has been devised for iOS devices using co-operative screen play. They even said that Apple gave them special permission from Apple to acces their mobile development team.

Johnny Test: Roller Johnny is available for iOS devices running 4.0 and later (iPhone 3GS and up, iPod Touch 3rd generation and up, iPad) from the iOS App Store for $0.99 (approx Rs.50).
