Kinetic Defender – AirScreen Motion Tracking for iOS
Buenos Aires, Argentina – Diwit today is pleased to introduce Kinetic Defender 1.1 for iOS, its first person shooter in space for 1-4 players, which employs its revolutionary AirScreen motion recognition technology instead of conventional touch or tilt controls. After simple calibration, the front-facing camera of the iDevice follows the movement of the player’s palm, which is held up toward the screen. The onscreen weapons reticle/targeting window responds to the movement of the user’s hand, destroying incoming meteors and missiles aimed at Earth. The advanced motion recognition technology, effective at distances of 1-10 feet, allows players to enjoy gameplay on a large-screen TV via the game’s AirPlay mirroring capability.

At launch in landscape orientation, Kinetic Defender offers single or multi-player modes. Players can take a photo or use a stored image as their avatar. The game accommodates up to four players who take turns defending the Earth from deadly meteors, missiles, and other dangers. Among these enemies are power-ups that must be followed until the targeting window makes a full turn, rewarding players with special abilities which increase attack power and defense. Players score points for destroying threats and bonus points for combos.
The targeting window leaves a visible trail as it moves, and players can take note of their skill in quickly moving from target to target. An inset window at the top of the screen displays the front-camera view of the player’s hand, with an overlay of vertical and horizontal tracking outlines. Kinetic Defender captures photos to its Gallery during gameplay, which can be easily shared via built-in Facebook and Twitter connectivity.
