One of the most successful iPhone app developers now has a wicked new iPad game available for the device on Day One. Tapulous CEO Bart Decrem recently explained to Appolicious that “the experience is now moving into the living room,” and that Tapulous would be developing a series of games to accommodate the next context. 

“You can have more people play at the same time on the same device,” he said. “We will also take advantage of the screen real estate and processing power.”

NBC and Newscorp, which owns the Fox Network, are financial backers of Hulu.
