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.

The Pinball free for Mac OS X and Remote Utility for iPhone now available

We previously had a quick sneak peek at Gameprom’s ‘The Pinball’, a collection of 3 pinball games set to make its appearance on the iPad. First up though is the OS X version, which has just been released for the Mac and now available as a free download. That’s right, The Pinball is free, though it only includes the Wild West Pinball table (still a pretty sweet deal if you own a Mac). To unlock Jungle Style Pinball and The Deep Pinball, they’ll set you back $2.99 each. The part where it gets interesting though is how you play the game. Gameprom has also released the free Pinball Utility for the iPhone and iPod Touch that allows you to purchase the extra tables AND control all aspects of the game.
