As accelerometers became standard phone accessories, ActionXL created motion demos for the Android platform. All demos were designed summer and fall of 2009.
Cosmic Trails: A fun, music-driven arcade style game where players tilt to control a spiky character. The player must strike the head of the geometric comets and avoid the tails.
Rubble Sort: Tilt the phone to move a series of buckets. Catch falling rubble in the appropriately colored bin.
Zig-Zag: Keep the line between the two spheres as it zooms ever faster toward the horizon.
Cluster: A classic Shoot’em in a 360* world you can explore by tilting the phone left or right.
Pants on the Ground: A quick 2-day experiment to see how many downloads we could get by piggy-backing on a pop phenomenon. Pants on the Ground had almost 1,000 within three days of its release.
Bubble Level: A simple accelerometer based application for “straightening picture frames, setting shelves, and cheating on your golf putts.”
While working at actionXL I created a series of small game ‘demos’ that showed off the various uses of their PC motion controller (tilt, direction action, indirect action or gesture). All games are available to download at www.actionxl.com but require an actionXL wired motion controller to play.
Stucker: In Stucker, players use a ‘lasso’ motion to swing a sticky, elastic alien up into the air. Stucker tries to find flower petals as he climbs to ever higher heights, gaining stats boosts and a greater appreciation for earth’s natural beauty.
Burst or Bust: Valius Coron owns a hot air balloon, and attached to that air balloon is a three story tall wooden stake he uses to pop monstrous, rabid balloon monsters that are threatening to take over the city. Tilt to move Valius’ balloon and then flick the controller down to ‘pop’ the monsters before they develop mouths and consume you.
Factory: There’s no easy win when you have to sort mail. Use the motion controller to move the vertical and horizontal treadmills that separate the packages from the trash.
Breakout: Classic game with a motion twist. Use the controller to move your paddle across the screen.
