Can I operate two Robosapiens at the same time?

I remember watching Looney Tunes as a kid.  When Daffy got hit with a giant mallet, his eyes would roll like a slot machine and a loud "BOING" would sound.  I always wanted my own cartoon character to smash with a mallet...  Wrex the Dawg is that character, brought to life in my own living room!

Many of you may already be aware that Rovio has a "built-in" client optimized for the iPhone and iPod Touch, which allows you to take control of Rovio when you don't have access to a laptop or more powerful PC.  However, this built-in client is a bit limited and sometimes difficult to control; requiring multiple presses for continuous movement...
