One problem with iPhone Gaming is that there are no physical buttons, thus movement controls are very hard to achieve, even if you can move, you often have problem moving your character accurately. In my view, it really make me feel that some of the First Person Shooting Games and RPG Game really tiring to play.
But with the announcement of iPhone 4, Gaming will be even more interesting now, as they will be including Gyroscope inside. So what is Gyroscope?
A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of conversation of angular momentum. A mechanical gyroscope is essentially a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation.
So what can it actually do? It can track your movement of the device, by more axis, so you can twist and turn like you are looking from the screen, and the game will move according to your movement… Like it is really moving.
It is very hard to imagine, check out the video below. It is a game call gun range which is done up by ngmoco, making use of the gyroscope.. and you will understand how powerful this will be in gaming… [Techcrunch]
