The iPad release of FORZEFIELD Studios’ frenetic dual stick space shooter, Infinity Field HD, has just gotten a really cool new update…two player co-op via Joypad.

That’s right, now you and a buddy can have each other’s back as you blast your way through loads of vibrant and colorful enemies TOGETHER, each controlling the action from the comfort of your own iPhone or iPod Touch.

The iPad screen not big enough for you?

Fear not, using AirPlay mirroring or HDMI out on your iPad 2, you can hook the game up to your big screen TV and control the game from the comfort of your couch, as if you were on a traditional gaming console!

Infinity Field HD is the first title to take advantage of the Joypad SDK’s multiplayer capability, and I’m super excited to see how other developers utilize this feature in future titles as well.

While I haven’t had the chance to check out this new co-op mode in Infinity Field HD yet (this will soon be rectified), in my experience, the Joypad controller is very responsive, with little to no lag and I’ve been impressed with it thus far. So, I fully expect this to be a rather satisfying experience.

You can purchase Infinity Field HD (published by Chillingo) from the App Store for $1.99 and grab the free version of Joypad or upgrade to the paid Elite version with loads of classic console controller themes/layouts.

Short on cash, then why not enter FORZEFIELD Studios’ twitter contest (ends Saturday Jan 14th) for a chance to win a free copy of Infinity Field HD as well as a copy of Joypad Elite!
