New iPhone Game: Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner Available Now for iPhone
      #39177 - 11/18/10 06:50 PM

THQ Wireless today released Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner, the first mobile Star Wars game featuring augmented reality technology, for iPhone 3GS and 4, and iPod Touch 4G. The iPad version is scheduled for release in December. Here is more info:

Available for download on iTunes for $4.99, the first-person action game puts players in the Millennium Falcon's gunner turret, immersing them in more than 20 arcade-style levels that cover the legendary smuggling vessel's most exciting moments ? including the Death Star escape, asteroid field pursuit over Hoth and infamous Kessel Run. As they blast their way through waves of TIE fighters and Star Destroyers, players earn credits that can be used to make special modifications to the Falcon?s offensive and defensive capabilities, including concussion missiles and a low-level tractor beam.

For iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G users, an optional augmented reality mode lets players use a device?s camera to overlay enemy fighters on top of their natural surroundings and the device?s compass or gyroscope to enable 360-degree, full body motion control movement. A free update scheduled to come over the next several weeks will also let users take and share augmented reality photos from within the Falcon?s turret. On iPad, players can use the native compass for a similar control scheme against high-definition graphics.

Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner sells for $4.99 on the iTunes App Store:
