For anyone who owns either an iPod or iPhone 4, I have found a game which is
proving to be a lot of fun. The game is called Flip It. For anyone who has
played Smack Me or ZanyTouch, the concept is similar, repeat the actions
within as little time as possible to earn points. Where this game is
different is in the types of actions you perform and the number of modes
Moves: Instead of gesture-based moves, Flip It uses the latest generation
devices' gyroscope feature to enable tilt-based gestures. The commands are
things like Up: hold the phone with the screen pointing up towards the
ceiling. Left: tilt the screen so that it is pointing to your left. Down,
flip the phone over so that the screen is facing the floor, etc.
The app is very accessible. Voice Over reads all the buttons, though some of
them have some extraneous text which is read along with them. The multiple
modes like survival (the same as in the other games I mentioned) Challenge,
complete six levels in as little time as possible, and party (multiplayer)
also add quite a lot to the game. Unfortunately, the game will only work
with the latest generation of either the iPhone or the iPod touch. It is
available in the App Store for $1.99 and is well worth it.
