Touchy turns your iOS device into a flash game controller

By , on November 5, 2012

If you've ever sat playing a browser game, quietly wishing you had something better than the arrow keys on your computer to play it, your prayers have been answered.

Touchy, from browser and smartphone developer Nitrome, turns your iOS device into a controller for a variety of different Nitrome games, and getting started is as simple as downloading the free app and logging on to the Nitrome website.

This is a lot more than just a set of on-screen buttons though. The controller app performs differently depending on the game you select, with tailored control schemes for each of the 9 different games that are currently available.

With more titles set to be announced in the not too distant future, and an Android version of the app on the way as well, it's looking like browser games are set to get a lot more interesting.

Check out the video we've embedded below that shows Touchy at work, and if its piques your curiosity, you can grab the app by clicking here.
