SHREVEPORT, La.–(Twin Engine Labs, an innovative design and development agency, announced today the launch of its first original iPhone app, “PentaKill” – a comprehensive free companion app for Riot Games’ popular “League of Legends” video game that includes an innovative screen analyzer. Meant to be used during gameplay to conquer each match, PentaKill is the only game companion app with second screen technology that enables players to scan the game screen and receive real-time strategy back immediately.)–
“Some of the PentaKill features, like the screen analyzer, feel very sci-fi and we’re excited to offer something fresh and new to support such a successful game.”
“We create cool apps for our clients every day, but this is our first foray into creating an app for ourselves,” said Ken Hanson, co-founder at Twin Engine Labs. “Some of the PentaKill features, like the screen analyzer, feel very sci-fi and we’re excited to offer something fresh and new to support such a successful game.”
Screen Analyzer: If a player holds an iPhone’s camera up to the screen during Draft Pick, the app will recognize character images and help the player counter-pick their opponents. Once the game is loading, players can then scan opponents and pull up the character information as well as counter mechanics in an easy to use cheat sheet.
Critical information: Details such as Champion stats, skills, lore, and skins can be found cleanly on a single screen, and every capability has a corresponding video so descriptions that can be seen instead of read.
