Chopper 2 coming soon to Mac, use your iPhone as a remote control [Video]

Magic Jungle Software, the dev team that brought you the iDevice hit Chopper 2, has announced that the game will be making its way to the Mac App Store in the near future. Not only that, but you’ll soon be able to control the Mac game (via Wifi) while using the iPhone version of Chopper 2. Turning your iPhone/iPod Touch into a remote control isn’t entirely new; we’ve seen this done on The Pinball for Mac, not to mention the ultra cool iPhone controlled quadricopter AR.Drone.

With the Mac App Store expected to arrive within a month’s time or so, we can likely expect more apps/game to be ported to the Mac, along with the ability to remotely control them via an iDevice. Check out the video of Chopper 2 on the Mac being paired up with an iPhone after the gap.
