    Hi there,

    Anybody here knows games that take full advantage of a multitouch screen? I'm not complaining about actual games around. I love them all, but I really think that developers are still glued to old paradigms. Take Lights Off for example: try to press two squares at the same time to see what happens.

    I know it sounds silly, but these are the first steps in a breakthrough technology.

    And it's not impossible to do: VNC and ScummVM already take advantage of multitouch.

    Cheers,
    Rafael

    Yes it can. That's what 'Multi-touch" means

    It can be pushed in two places. That's what makes the phone/ipod so revolutionary, it has multi-touch support. For evidence of this, look at Maps, NES, Photos, gpSPhone, etc.

    It can be touched in multiple places simultaneously. Load NES.app and press A+B and a direction. They all register simultaneously. It does offer some interesting prospects for gaming.

    Touch both at same time, then one of you tap the screen with another finger, try that
