Red Nova is now available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. An Asteroids-like shooter, Red Nova sacrifices high detail for high framerates and provides frenetic but satisfying gameplay. The game is integrated into Apple's Game Center for leaderboards and achievements, comes with Retina Display graphics and has various difficulty levels. Also, the game is universal and will run on your iPad as well as your iPhone.

What is really interesting is that Red Nova is extending the game concept first started by Chopper 2 where you can can use your iPhone as the controller and play the game on your iPad. As with Chopper 2, it takes a little while to get used to having the controls on the iPhone, but the idea is great.

We'll have a full review later this week, but for now check out the iPhone-to-iPad gameplay on the next page.
