In AirFight the integrated accelerometer and multi-touch feature are used to control the plane. With a special setting on the phone you can select an energy-saving mode enabling you to play much longer than usual without having to recharge. The user can also plug the phone into a home entertainment system to experience the fantastic 3D sound effects.
AirFight can be played by one or two players. Single players engage with the phones own fighters. Two players can fight against one another in the multiplayer mode. This is one of the few multiplayer games developed so far for iPhone and we are very satisfied with the result, says Johan Sanneblad who has a PhD in Mobile IT and was responsible for the project at HiQ.
HiQ has unique expertise in developing mobile applications and we see great potential in developing this type of application. I have worked with mobile application development for more than ten years now and Ive never come across a mobile platform where it is possible to move so quickly from concept to finished product as iPhone, which means its of great interest to Swedish companies wanting to launch new mobile applications, continues Johan Sanneblad.
