Fullpower Announces MotionX-Poker Available on Apple's App Store
SANTA CRUZ, CA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Fullpower® announced its
MotionX™-Poker game for iPhone and iPod Touch to be available
exclusively from the new Apple App Store today. Fullpower uses the iPhone's
accelerometer and innovative multi-touch display to put seemingly real dice
in the player's hands.
"MotionX-Poker revolutionizes mobile gaming and takes advantage of
everything that's great about the iPhone and iPod Touch," said Arthur
Kinsolving, director of technology for Fullpower. "It's original gameplay
and is designed and optimized exclusively for the iPhone OS platform."
The player shakes the device to roll the dice. The dice use real-world
physics to roll, collide and settle just as if they were actual dice.
Gameplay is simple and similar to a standard poker game, with each side of
the die representing a different card. Each player has up to three rolls to
get a winning combination of Poker dice. The player with the best hand at
the end of these rolls is the winner. Users can also play any dice game
through the game's 'Zen Roll' mode.
How it works
Fullpower has developed the MotionX Recognition
Engine and the MotionX Embedded Physics
Engine. The MotionX Recognition Engine captures the player's hand
movement. The MotionX Embedded Physics Engine then runs this motion
information through advanced mathematical algorithms and determines the
outcome of the roll. The user's actual shake determines the outcome of the
roll as in real life. Tilt' N Roll™, ShakeShake™ and Taptap™
gestures individually and in combination are all integrated with the
Pricing and Availability
The MotionX-Poker iPhone game will be available for download worldwide for
an introductory offer of $4.99 from the Apple App Store
