Augmented Reality allows you to defend your city from the Empire

Heres some impressive test footage of a new game due for release soon on the iPhone 4. Developed by Vertigore Games, the software uses the phones camera and gyroscope to give the impression that the Empire's TIE-Fighters are attacking your city. Quite how this might work when you play it on the tube, I'm not sure, and obviously the bad guys ships aren't interacting with the environment (now that would be worth playing on public transport) but so far as a entertaining aside, its a cool step forward.

Published by THQ Wireless, Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner will hit the Apple Store in mid November for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Gen. No support for the ageing 3G as the RAM and memory on that model just isn't up to scratch.
