∞ Pangea updates games for AirPlay

Pangea Software has announced the release of updates to six of its iOS games to support AirPlay features in iOS 5. Bugdom 2, Cro Mag Rally, Nanosaur 2, Otto Matic, Quarters and Enigmo 2 now support the new capability.

AirPlay enables you to stream content wirelessly from an iOS device to an HDTV using an Apple TV as the intermediary. What’s more, a couple of Pangea’s games have been upgraded with a new mode called “Spectator-Cam.” Cro-Mag Rally, a kart racing game, and the flying combat game Nanosaur 2, now enable viewers to watch a unique perspective on the game from a TV. Players continue to play the game normally, while everyone else watches the TV to see the game from what Pangea calls a “hyper-dynamic camera view.”

In addition to requiring iOS 5, which debuts on Wednesday, the AirPlay capability is limited to the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. Both these devices use an A5 dual-core microprocessor which has the horsepower to compress video more effectively than other iOS devices.

Other enhancements include new higher resolution artwork designed to look better on HDTVs.

Pangea has put their iOS games on sale for $0.99 to celebrate the launch of iOS 5. The games are typically $2.99 or $3.99.
