Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner has made its way over to the App Store and is now available on iTunes for iPhone 3GS and 4, and iPod Touch 4G for $4.99. The iPad version is set for a release for December. Falcon Gunner is the first mobile Star Wars game to feature augmented reality technology, allowing players to use their device’s camera to overlay enemy fighters on top of natural surroundings and the device’s compass or gyroscope to enable 360-degree, full body motion control movement.
Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner is a first-person action title that puts you in the driver’s seat of the gun turret for the Millennium Falcon and offers more than 20 arcade-style levels.
“It’s no exaggeration to say that our mission at Vertigore Games – building experiences and proprietary technology that blur the lines between fantasy and reality – has been sparked in large part by our lifelong fascination with the Star Wars universe,” said Josh Shabtai, CEO and creative director, Vertigore Games. “With the release of Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner, we’re excited to create the first mobile augmented reality Star Wars experience.”
