Clip in an iPhone or iPod touch, take aim and let ‘er rip as you attempt to hit the target in one of 35 compatible iOS games. The “trigger” is attached to a stylus tip that taps the screen. We got to check out the BowBlade with two iOS games. One used the phone’s camera to sight “real world” targets — in this case, a pair of targets at the back of the booth. The second used the phone’s gyroscope and accelerometer to help you aim snowballs at onscreen turkeys. It all sounds kinda silly, but it was so much fun. I was a natural at the first app, but the second showed just how hard it is to control a bow and fire an “arrow” with any accuracy at all.
