Its no secret that the accelerometer in the android phones is impressive, and we love talking about apps that really show it off. Well there is a new game that uses this great tool in a really fun way. The game is called Sky Siege for the android platform. This game is centered all around the sky and the vehicles that we get up into the air. This game combines gunships in a great 3d experience with virtual reality and augmented reality components. The point of the game is to fight off helicopters and fighter jets which come from all different directions to keep it challenging. This game will keep you on the edge of your seat as the action is insane and fast and furious. Whats really cool is that you hold the phone up into the world to see whats around you, like google sky maps. So when we say don’t play this game sitting down, we mean it as you need to be able to spin around and use the phone as a window into the virtual reality that you can’t see around you.
This game is really fun and quite addictive to play. The only issue we have with this app is the repetitive nature that surrounds it. The idea is great, and the gameplay is definitely something different, but ultimately you will not find a ton of re playability factor except for the wanting to show it off to your friends stage you will go through.
- The game uses augmented reality with 3d so that you literally have to hold the phone up and see what is going on around you.
- The point of the game is to shoot down enemy planes, helicopters, blimps, and more while putting yourself into action
- use the on screen controls to toggle ammunition type and zoom in the bottom left corner, toggle augmented reality and virtual reality with the firing button in the bottom right of the screen
- It is recommended that this app be installed on a device running Android 2.1 or 2.2 with a fast processor to be able to handle the strenuous load of the app
This is a really cool idea and the app is a must look app as it is something different than we have seen in the past. If you like to shoot things out of the sky, use this app, its quite fun and will keep you entertained for a while.
This app cost $1.59 in euros and has been given a 4 out o f 5 star rating.
