IMPORTANT NOTICE: This game requires 4th generation devices (specifically, iPhone4, iPodTouch 4th Generation, or iPad2), it is NOT compatible with lower spec. devices due to hardware requirements.
This is the Training/Lite/Free version of Pocket Jets (AR) and allows you practise flying the Gyro-Jets only - to see if you have what it takes to enter into full battle in the full version.
With POCKET JETS (AR) TRAINING you take full 360 degree flight-control over a futuristic 'Gyro-Jet' as you steer it through the REAL-WORLD environment surrounding YOU!
Pocket Jets uses the gyroscope in your device to convincingly and smoothly blend 3D graphics and sound with your camera’s view to deliver a truly immersive experience.
Fly your Jet over YOUR home, around YOUR garden, or in YOUR living room, wherever you are, it's like you are flying a remote-controlled plane, only bigger and louder. If it's too dark to use the camera you can choose one of the built in virtual locations instead. Gyro-Jets are loud and fast - you can perform high-speed overhead passes, acrobatic barrel-rolls, and noisy low fly-bys. An on-screen compass helps you to know exactly where your Jet is at any time.
This TRAINING VERSION Version allows you to learn how to control and track your Jet's movements only, and does not include Weapons or Enemy Jets to fight against. This TRAINING VERSION of Pocket Jets includes the following features:
• Optimised for retina display and iPad2;
• Intuitive multi-touch controls;

• Two optional built-in virtual locations (4 in the FULL VERSION);

The FULL VERSION of POCKET JETS (AR) includes different enemies, ranging from passive Missile-Fodder through to Elite AI opponents who mean business, and will be second guessing your next move.
