With the release of SDK for the iPhone from Apple, we can expect a host of new applications and games being developed for the device. Most of those will obviously make use of the touchscreen UI and the built in Accelerometer sensor, two features Apple has more or less designed to perfection.
Freeverse, a software and games development company based in New York is aiming to take advantage of those exact features.
The guys at Freeverse obviously love their iPhones, a fact stated on their website. Now they are planning to develop a few games which would take advantage of the touch UI and the Accelerometer and make games for the iPhone. The plans so far are;
Using the iPhone’s unique flick/pinch feature, we’re working on Golf, Bowling, Soccer, and Baseball (to start). Fun, colorful and quick, these will be ideal games for a modern mobile platform.
Flick Sports: Moto Racing
Ah, the wind in your hair, the bugs in your teeth and the open road stretching out in front of you! Using the iPhone’s cool accelerometer, (you know, that doohickey that knows when your iPhone is sideways or not), you can steer your motorcycle to victory in this wild racing game. Awesome characters and a touch of humor, its a Freeverse game after all, will add to the fun.
I have played around with the iPhone and impressed with the Touch UI and the Accelerometer, the iPhone also has a great game which utilizes those features. the responsiveness and feedback from both motion and touch is impressive, iPhone owners should look ahead to some great developments from now on.
Whilst the guys at Freeverse work on the SDK and develop the games, you can enjoy a free web game to pass those anxious days…
