iPhone Game Review: Toys Unleashed
First things first, this is a free download from the app store at the moment. This is because it is a promotional tie in with a campaign from a certain credit card provider - but it is definitely worth a download.
The really smart thing about Toys Unleashed is its use of so-called ‘augmented reality’ technology. You see your own hand and surroundings on screen thanks to the camera on the iPhone, which adds a fun extra level of immersion.
The characters you take control of are based off those appearing in the current Barclaycard TV advert. They are a monkey, a t-rex and a robot. The 3D animations are fun and quirky, as well as having a well polished feel.
Each of the characters has their own game, and each of the games has a choice of three difficulty levels. Whilst the games are easy at the start (even a young child would likely be able to play straight away) they rapidly progress to borderline sadism.
This is a fun little diversion and well worth grabbing if you are a phone-fiddler.
