Infinity Field HD released last year with promises of a remote control mode in the future; the future is now here, thanks to everyone's favorite general-purpose iOS remote control app, Joypad! By loading up the app, players can use their iPhone or iPod touch to play the dual-stick shooter remotely. The dual joysticks work a lot better than many games, because it's easier to note the position of the joysticks without looking at the remote device's screen because of the direct feedback as to firing or movement direction versus trying to locate virtual buttons. However, the most exciting feature of the update is that this is the first Joypad-enabled game to support multiplayer! By loading up two iPhones or iPod touches with Joypad on the same wireless network, the game's multiplayer mode can be enjoyed on the iPad, or on the TV when connected to an external display with mirroring. As well, this update brings a new game mode to play, Hammer mode, where the only weapon is a familiar constantly circling the player's ship. This mode is available in both single and multiplayer modes, and the free update is available now.

Chillingo and ForzeField's Infinity Field, the dual-stick shooter released earlier this year for the iPad, has finally made its way to the iPhone and iPod touch. This version of the game contains the same features as the iPad version, including six game modes, three weapons, and a Campaign mode that will put players through the rigors of the game. The game has been otherwise tweaked to play better on the smaller screen size of iPhones and iPod touches, though the game does support the Retina Display on the iPod touch 4 and iPhone 4.
The now-retitled Infinity Field HD has been recently updated as well, adding new enhanced visual effects for iPad 2 owners. If and when Apple announces a next generation iPhone, developer ForzeField is planning to update the game to support similar visual effects on that device, presuming it does in fact contain an A5 chip similar to the iPad 2's, according to their Twitter account. Until then, we'll just have to put up with our pithy A4 devices.
