And now for the good news. Just about a week back, Real Racing 2 was released for the Mac App Store! It comes at a handy $12.99 with more features and improvements added – one of them being the most favorite here: you can play Racing 2 for Mac using iPad or iPhone or iPod!!
Yeah, probably you are mumbling that it’s old news, but here’s something that’s not clearly mentioned on all websites.Of course, Racing 2 for Mac using iPhone is nothing unique. There are games which already use iPhone or iPad as controllers. What makes this impressive is that Real Racing gets a major face-lift with this feature added – because even serious gamers can now do away with joysticks and external controllers. Just an iPhone pairing would do. You can simply play Racing 2 for Mac using iPhone – without much ado.
Here’s how to pair the iPhone with Mac on the game:
1. Run the game on your Mac.
2. Make sure your Mac and your iPhone / iPad are on the same WiFi network.
3. Go to the Controls menu (in the game).
4. Just type the ‘direct’ URL mentioned in it – in your iOS device browser.
5. If that looks a bit tedious, you can type control.cloudcell.com in your iPhone.
6. The devices should automatically get paired once you visit the site!
As simple as it sounds, make sure your devices are on the same network for this work properly.
Motion and tilt controls on the iPhone respond very well with the Real Racing 2 on Mac.
Racing 2 for Mac using iPhone or iPad is a very new concept. In fact, the game has only now been ported to the Mac atmosphere. While there is no saying how popular the game would be on Mac, the game has already gotten a lot of downloads on the Mac App Store. Of course, people love games when it’s based on motion-sensing equipment! The iPhone-controller twist is just going to be the coolest thing people wanted.
