iPhone and Kinect Partner Up for Co-Op Shooting Game
Sort of. It’s unlikely that we’re going to get Apple and Microsoft to co-operate on a joint project any time soon, but that’s not stopping a couple guys from Singapore from developing their own game that utilizes products from both companies.
Rockmoon of Singapore have come up with a 3D shooter where one player controls the ship via Kinect and the other player controls the Gatling gun with the iPhone. I suppose one player could theoretically do both, but the whole point is that two discerning parties can play cooperative together, right?
The graphics, by today’s standards, are pretty terrible and they look like a really old and crappy build of the Pod Racer section of Phantom Menace (plus Gatling guns), but the concept is pretty novel. You might even say it’s better than controlling a Roomba with your Wii Remote.
