Codify is a code editor designed to help you create games, simulations, or "just about any visual idea you have" all on your iPad (the video above demonstrates the app paired with a Bluetooth keyboard, but you can use an on-screen keyboard too).

Built on the Lua programming language, the app is meant to let you "touch your code", tapping and dragging to change numbers, colors, and assets. Once you've typed out your code, you can press play to run and interact with your game.

Codify features a vector graphics and image renderer, sample projects, a "retro-game sound effect" generator, auto-completion for suggested keywords nd functions, syntax highlighting, and support for the iPad's multi-touch features and accelerometer.

Two Lives Left (Pilot Winds) has released Codify to the App Store earlier this week for $7.99.
