The augmented reality top seller has returned to our shelves but now with a new twist. The new universal cage fits all sorts of devices, iPod touch, iPhones and now Android phones too!
To play the game you must defend your position against swarms of aliens using various guns and missiles. The environment is fully three dimensional and the aliens come at you from every angle imaginable. The appBlaster utilizes the accelerometer of your iPhone/iPod touch/Android phone so the game rotates and moves as you do. The result is immersive game play that requires quick reactions and frantic firing!
Augmented Reality – you can make use of the overlay the game against your surrounding environment. When your device is docked it transforms into a high tech sight complete with cross hair and game data. Now the alien swarm will appear from the walls, ceiling, floor, dog or whatever else happens to be in the room at the time. We can’t emphasise just how much fun it is to shout “die alien scum!” whilst pointing the gun at your partners head! Actually, never before has the quote “they’re coming out of the goddamn walls!” been so apt! Don’t worry if you have an iPod Touch as the game works just as well using the alternative space background.
Even the way to reload is super cool. To replenish your ammo you have to quickly move the gun 90 degrees towards the ceiling and then back down again. Special weapons and power ups can be collected throughout the mission so keep your eyes peeled.
The gun is lightweight and the shoulder stock can be removed to give you a shorter gun depending on your preference. There are two triggers; the rear trigger fires the lasers, whilst the front trigger is for firing missiles, but use them sparingly!

Love it! - Review by Paul
Great purchase - albeit it came from the wee fella's grandparents who asked me to source a present, tsk tsk - he's having great fun with it so far and particularly enjoys when the aliens pop up around myself or the Mrs, as it's 2 for 1 for him ;-)
Not sure if he's used the other apps yet but managed to get Alien Attack, AppCopter, AppControl Invaderz and AppRacer for free (for iPhone) so no further expense...yet anyway ;-)
Either way, great toy, relatively small as well and very lightweight - would highly recommend to all with small children who like to shoot aliens, etc...
