Star Wars Arcade Falcon Gunner: Augmented Reality Shooter

 |  |  |  |  |  November 8, 2010

THQ will be releasing a Star Wars-themed first person shooter for the iPhone and the iPod Touch.

Gamers can use live feed from the rear camera as the background for the game, as you can see in the picture below.

It would have been more awesome if the game had more interactivity, like if you could “destroy” parts of the footage. Still, you can use your imagination and pretend that your sister’s face is the Death Star.
