Wii-Style Motion Gaming Brought to the iOS Platform via Motion Tennis
Rolocule Games recently released Motion Tennis, which is a new $7.99 iOS title that turns your mobile device into a Nintendo Wii-like motion controller for gaming on a display connected to an Apple TV. The game studio which is based in India, has previously released a series of touch-based tennis, badminton and squash games. Motion Tennis is the new game that brings gameplay to the television by using motion gestures.
Rolocule takes advantage of a game engine it calls RoloMotion which according to the company:
…converts your iPhone to a portable Motion Gaming Console using Apple TV. This breakthrough technology realizes the potential of the Apple TV as a complete home entertainment system also optimizing the lags experienced in airplay gaming by using our patented algorithms.
Multiple users are given the option to play together in the multiplayer mode and the game even keeps track of calories burnt in each match for you fitness geeks. Much like many other games in the iOS app store, users can also log into Game Center to track achievements and top scores.
The game is one of the few games that showcase Apple’s potential to take over console gaming in the living room. Is it something any of you have or will be considering trying?

Cool idea. I'd love to try it out.
How long till they're sued and have to include a case with a wrist strap? Lol

Poor Nintendo. They should've already made this since its their 'original' idea.
They're so behind its getting pitiful

I hope Apple gets sued by Nintendo for this.

When you thought throwing your wiimote into a tv was a expensive mistake wait until you throw your iPhone 5 into your tv

If people like this and more games come out wonder if it will have an impact on Wii? Poor Nintendo? I don't feel sorry for them at all. They made bad decisions.

This has been an idea on my mind for a long time, now if they can get multi-player, then they would have the Apple TV's selling out.
Imagine if you bought the game on your phone. Went over to your buddies house who had an apple tv and some sort of i-device. You could say let's play this new game I just bought. Boom, instant game console, no controllers needed, you both have your iPhones to play as the control.
You could have all of the FPS games or any new hot game on your phone. That would rock!

I guess I missed that ;-S

Not bad. Just tested it out for about a minute. Will have to get used to it. Also tells you how many calories you burnt after you play. Need more instructions on different shots and directions.
