Sky Siege for Android

Stand up and Fight! A cutting edge, totally insane game for the Android platform. Sky Siege meshes 3D immersion in shooting mayhem with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, stretching all hardware components of the device to the max and beyond. MADfirm developed the Android version in partnership with Simbiotics, the developer of the original groundbreaking iPhone app.

WARNING: Sky Siege demands big hardware and a reliable compass. It can be sluggish on sub-1Ghz devices, and the controls can be affected if there is magnetic interference. Works brilliantly on Nexus One, HTC Desire, Droid X, EVO 4G, and that class. Doesn’t work on Xperia and Moment due to inadequate device compasses.  And is not suitable for older Android devices like G1, Magic, etc.

TIP: Gameplay is very dependent on the compass – if the controls are shaky or sluggish, or the orientation is off, first reset the compass through the button on the game screen. If that doesn’t work, try to move to a different room or space with less magnetic interference. Or play it outside.
