We at LOA have always considered Friday to be Monday’s far sexier, infinitely more welcome sibling, but sometimes the onset of the weekend in the Life of Android offices is even more awesome than usual; especially when it involves taking up arms and obliterating augmented aliens with the natty new appBlaster v.2!
Slicker than Sigourney Weaver with a Smart Gun, the apptoyz appBlaster v.2 is a Droid (and Apple) docking weapon of mass distraction that utilises your Android’s accelerometer to upgrade your gaming experience to incredible new heights, whilst dual conductive pads transfer your two-triggered skills to the screen, making for the most immersive action ever
With a whole slew of new super shooter titles slated to make their way onto to Google Play soon, the currently available option is the utterly addictive augmented reality Alien Attack. Pop your device in the dock and lock and load as the combination of your camera and the app’s AR puts you at the heart of an extra-terrestrial attack, whether at work, at home or in the street, leaving you to rely on nothing but your on-screen scanner, alien-invasion-aiming ability and the talent of your trigger fingers to eliminate ET.
With fast and relentless action coming from every direction, plus a variety of different Martian monsters moving in for a mauling, the pace never lets us, keeping each level fresh and thrilling, whilst the addition of the in-hand appBlaster itself enhances the experience exponentially.
Available for £25 from RED5.co.uk, the appBlaster v.2, with its adjustable dock and removable shoulder stock, is the perfect peripheral for shoot ’em up screen tappers who demand more from their devices.
