Panopticon brings eight multitouch points to iPad gaming

updated 06:05 am EST, Thu February 3, 2011

Quokka studios develops unique gaming experience

Independent gaming developer Quokka Studios has brought the first eight-point multitouch game to the iPad. Few games that have been developed for the iPad multitouch interface have used more than two touch points simultaneously, even though the iPad can handle up to 11 simultaneous touches. Panopticon engages users in a unique multitouch gaming experience as the video embedded below demonstrates.

Panopticon has a steampunk inspired storyline, graphics and music from acclaimed steampunk band Vernian Process. The player is challenged to complete 100 levels of increasing difficulty to defeat the Panopticon, a steam-powered overlord that has seized control and is controlling the minds of all humanity.

Panopticon 1.0 for the Apple iPad is available now for $1.99 in the iTunes App Store.

    Wrong.

    Plants vs Zombies for iPad uses up to 11 touch points. Technically that's not 8, but rather more than 8, making the headline either wrong or misleading.

    Still, kudos to Quokka Studios for developing a very multi-touch aware game app.

    11?

    Ten fingers and...I don't want to think about it.
