    Hi Folks,

    not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question, but anyways :)
    I'm trying to play Badland on my Apple TV with my Siri Remote as controller number 1 and my iPhone 5s as controller number 2.
    When entering the game, my iPhone (running the remote app) is not recognized anymore. When I leave the game using my Siri remote, the remote App on my iPhone works just fine in the menu.
    I launched the Badland App aswell in a second attempt on my iPhone and launched the Badland App on my Apple TV, but nothing happend.
    So my question is: Does Badland support gaming with an iPhone or iPad as a controller?
    Thanks

    Hey @Maddes !

    Welcome in the forum :)

    I just get a look on the appstore description of Remote app :
    "control of the volume, or the accelerometer and gyroscope for the games cannot be used with Siri Remote"

    If you want to play without the Siri Remote, or in the multiplayer mode, seems that you will need to buy a third-party controller : http://m.imore.com/how-add-game-controller-your-apple-tv

    Hope it will help you ! :)

    But Badland doesn't use the accelerometer or gyroscope, does it? So what reason is there for it not to work?

    Unfortunally, it's something general to all the games for now.
    You can only play using game controllers.

    Hmmm... Lots of my games have controller support on ios!
    I'm considering buying a controller, but ios 10 seems to have broken support for that :(

    I have one with my iPhone. But it's too laggy when I use it in games, so I play without :(

    Does Badland 2 make use of the analog sticks? The controller support in badland 1 appears to be "press A to fly foward"
