Games Can Have Great Controls on iPad, iPhone When Developers Innovate

Games Can Have Great Controls on iPad, iPhone When Developers Innovate

Some gamers complain that iOS gaming can never take off in the hardcore market due to relying on touch-only technology with no buttons of any kind. They do not grasp the fact that virtual dpads or virtual stick controls are only one facet of iOS gaming. There are also tilt-only or gyroscope-or-accelerometer control methods that is used in virtually every racing game coming out. There are many other great games like Tilt to Live, the Labirynth titles or the Super Monkey Ball series by Sega that rely solely on the tilting mechanism with no other on-screen buttons to speak of. These are the games I think we should see more of. I think developers just need to find ways to implement such control to traditional games or create new genres.

Home Run Derby Challenge 1.0 for iOS - Accelerometer Based Baseball Game

Home Run Derby Challenge 1.0 for iOS – Accelerometer Based Baseball Game

Miami, Florida – Everything Techs today is pleased to introduce Home Run Derby Challenge 1.0, their accelerometer based game for iOS. Featuring realistic graphics and animation, the player swings by flicking his wrist quickly, a movement which is measured by the iOS device and translated into the corresponding action by the batter. Pitches come at various speeds, and only well hit balls will go over the fence for a home run. The player’s speed and reflexes are tested as they attempt to swing as hard as possible at exactly the right time, adding points by hitting home runs. Unlike some similar games, Home Run Derby Challenge provides added realism by allowing the batter to swing and miss, and to hit balls deep but not over the fence.

Taxiball App Review for iPhone and iPod Touch: A Nice Twist on the Labyrinth Genre

Labyrinth games are part of a pretty popular genre that was one of the first to use the iPhone’s accerometer.

If I had to describe it in one sentence, that would be it, but I think I’ll just write a review!
