Illusion Labs today announced its Touchgrind HD App for iPad is now available from the App Store. The app is based on the skateboarding game Touchgrind for iPhone and iPod touch and utilizes the iPad's 9.7 inch screen to show a far-reaching view of the skatepark, making it easy for the player to see where they are going.
The two player split screen mode is available for all three gaming modes; Warm Up, Jam Session and Competition. This lets users play against a friend on the same device using one half of the screen each with a gauge showing who is in the lead. Users can play together to perfect synchronized tricks, or disturb each other by crashing as the other is just about to land that insane flip.
The size and the physics of the skateboard are unchanged, so that players of the existing app for iPhone and iPod touch can bring all their skills. The game and all the menus are fully orientation independent so that the player can play in either portrait or landscape mode on iPad.
