CNET: Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner: TIE Fighter combat meets augmented reality
Think “Star Wars” games have been done to death? I guarantee you’ve never seen anything like Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner. It’s like the PC classic “TIE Fighter” mixed with the ingenious UFO on Tape mixed with the Layar Reality Browser.
As you can see, the game overlays itself on whatever appears in your iPhone camera lens. Point it at the night sky and, presto, you’re blasting TIE fighters in outer space. Point it at the dog and, um, presto, you’re blasting TIE fighters coming from your dog.
