One Man Left's Tilt to Live [99¢] has been a favorite of mine for quite a while now. In our review we discuss just how much fun its avoidance based gameplay is, and since then they've updated the game to add new power-ups and game modes not once, but twice.

Announced mere moments ago is Tilt to Live HD for the iPad, which according to developers One Man Left won't just be a simple up-scaling, and instead will be a similar game with an arena that is four times as large... Best yet, it will be free to try with a demo mode and a $3.99 in-app purchase to unlock the rest of the content in the game. Tilt to Live HD will be tilt controlled much like its iPhone counterpart, and although the developers are claiming the controls have been optimized for the iPad, I'm curious to see how well the game works in practice as many tilt controlled iPad games get tiresome due to the weight of the device.

Tilt to Live HD is due to be released on the App Store this September, and as soon we we get our grubby little hands on it, we'll post some more details on the game.

    Very fun game on the iPhone, but agree that this is somewhat unwieldy on the iPad due to the weight. The iPhone version works OK on the iPad, but the responsiveness and weight add an unintended challenge, I think. That said, I'm really interested to see the iPad version! I'd definitely try the Lite and do the IAP if it was that good.

      I've been playing the iPhone game at 2x on the ipad for a while and I have to say that it definitely still works. It's still pretty fun and I've had no complaints!

    There's nothing they can do since it's always going to be a tilt game (hence the name) and no software magic is going to change the weight of the device.

    Some games work better on the iPad (example: RTS) and some just don't (example: tilt).

    • Yrogerg212

      No offense, but do you have an iPad? I've had no trouble with games like Labyrinth 2 HD.

    I agree w most everyone. I tried Tilt to Live on my Ipad optimized at 2X and it was terrible but I loved it on the iPhone. The iPad just does not lend itself to tilt games like this. labyrinth worked ok but for some reason this one didn't. Maybe because u hav to be so precise.

    They should implement the bit pilot controls for this game.

    Great on iPhone, not so great on iPad, but even calibrating the iphone version was frustrating, however, not doing the $3.99 for an iPad version - no way no how.

    They've updated the iPhone version far more than could be reasonably expected for a $.99 game, so I'll be happy to pick this up when it comes out for iPad. If an extra $4 helps keep them developing the game on both platforms, I definitely want to support that.

    They ought to do what Chopper 2 did: Use the iPhone as a bluetooth controller for the game played on the iPad. That would rock!

    • Sera

      would rock.
      i think the ipad is thatlarge, that they can add a control by touching.
      but tilting works fine (with the iphone)

    • Jas

      Great idea! Add an option ala Chopper 2 to use iPhone as the controller for iPad display.

    • thebleeptruth

      I like this idea, and I hope more games will implement this. However, I wish they wouldn't just rely on bluetooth connection. My ipod touch is 1st gen, which leaves me out. Hopefully they could implement it either thru bluetooth or local wifi.

      But anyway, playing this game on 2x on my iPad is pretty good. Ever since I bought a case though, which made it bulkier, I've been struggling getting near my high score.

      • Yrogerg212

        You could take the case off while playing.
