Freeverse Details Game List for ToySight
2:55 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Freeverse Software today detailed some of the dozen games and toys that will make up ToySight, the company's camera-controlled entertainment software for the Mac. Instead of using a joystick, mouse, or keyboard, players maneuver themselves in front of an iSight or other firewire camera to control the action.

Here are some of the game types Freeverse will be introducing with ToySight:

Single Player

The Plank
Don't lose your marbles! Carefully balance your motorized plank to catch the falling marbles. Arrange like-colored marbles into rows of three to clear them away. Be careful, as your plank can only support so much weight.

The Owl And The Pussycat
Take your feline friend on a magical flight, as you collect gold coins and avoid the baddies in this epic platformer! Flap your wings to navigate through the maze and solve the puzzles.

Marble Factory
The aliens are invading your factory and trying to steal your marbles! Luckily, you've got the trusty Freeverse Model 9000 Laser, perfect for blasting the space scum - so long as you can match their color. Quick thinking and reflexes are necessary in this reaction-based puzzler.

Geronimo! Blaze through the sky towards your landing point on a tropical island. Grab bonus balloons and form rings with other skydivers to boost your score - just don't forget the ripcord!

The deep, dense jungle envelopes you. You hear the cries of strange birds, the rustle of thick foliage, the smell of...custard? Throw pies at monkeys, and avoid getting hit by their dangerous bananas!

Volcano God
Now you can be deity for a day! Protect your villagers, help them cultivate the land, demand pilgrimage - all with the power of your hands!

Two Player Games

Two subs, lots of missiles, crazy powerups - what could be more fun? Blasting your friend to smithereens, of course!

Toy Wars
Have your favorite toy say "cheese" for the camera, then use your hands to duke it out against your friend's toy as you strategically attack and defend in this battle of the century.

Tennis Xtreme
Watch the grenade carefully, and use your tank to keep it in the playfield. One wrong move, and it's KABOOM! Destroy your opponent's tank to win!

Toysight will require a computer running Mac OS X, as well as a camera that uses the FireWire serial bus, such as Apple's iSight. The software is expected to be released in late 2003 or early 2004, and will be available for $34.95.
