Rolocule is a developer team who have been showing a lot of Apple TV love. They brought a couple of games to iOS which are playable exclusively with an Apple TV, essentially turning your iPhone into a controller and the TV into the game arena. This not only resulted in a new genre of games as Motion Gaming but also added a health and exercise component to gaming.
As I said in an earlier article, Rolocule is the dev team whose iOS games appeal more to Apple TV users than it does to iPhoners. Unlike other dual screen games which just provide alternate HD visuals on mirroring, Rolocule motion games are AirPlay exclusive. These games turn your iPhone into a Wii-like motion controller and are playable only over Apple TV.
Motion Tennis was their first game which was widely popular thanks to its unique and never-before style of gameplay. You can read our full review here. Motion Tennis for Apple TV is currently available for free in the AppStore to celebrate the release of their new game, Dance Party of Apple TV, which we will be discussing in detail today.

Thanks to popular apps like AirServer and Reflector, the limited realm of AirPlay receivers has been vastly expanded to include Macs and Windows PCs. X-Mirage is the latest player in town and it comes with in-built media controls, the ability to mirror multiple devices and to record the screen. We browsed through the features earlier, but here is a closer look into how it works with the Windows ecosystem.
Rolocule Games, the company behind Motion Tennis for Apple TV, is currently in the process of adding some final touches to its next motion powered game, Dance Party. Their award-winning rolomotion technology has been vastly improved and the developers are boasting console quality precision and performance for their new release.
Apple TV still doesn’t have its own App Store (though this can change soon), so the possibilities of using it as a game console are very limited. Fortunately, there are some great dual screen iOS games out there and there is also Motion Tennis for Apple TV, a one-of-its-kind game that brings motion gaming to your Apple TV. Motion Tennis turns your iPhone or iPod touch into the tennis racket while the game takes place on your television via Apple TV.
The WWDC 2014 is scheduled to be held a month from now in San Francisco and as usual, we’re in the dark as to what Apple is planning to show off. However, 9to5Mac seems to have caught with some sources with knowledge of the plans and brings the first glimpse of what we can expect. Though iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 would take the major flash, Apple TV is also on the agenda.
