Zach Gage has just announced that Bit Pilot 2.0 for iPhone/IPad is about to hit the AppStore. To celebrate, Zach has made a desktop version which is available for download now (link below). It is the first application to use Apple’s Magic Trackpad as a wireless controller and although you can still use your MacBook’s trackpad as input (tested and working great), it is with magic trackpad where the game really shines. Bit Pilot for Mac is nearly a full game for free and includes all the features of the original Bit Pilot 1.0.
The Bit Pilot version 2.0 for iPhone/iPad launches this evening. It includes retina display support, 3 New Tracks from Sabrepulse, 2 New Modes, New Taunts, Vs. Friends Ranking through openFeint, Game Center Support, Cumulative Score Tracking and In Game Achievements Screen. See preview videos below.

If you enjoyed Canabalt, fast paced, heart pumping action, Bit Pilot will fit right into your collection of games on the iPhone. If I was going to give one gameplay advice, it is don’t panic! Take a deep breath, sit back, relax, thumbs on the screen and enjoy. Bit Pilot is absolutely fantastic!
