The introduction of a gyroscope into the iPhone 4 and the iPod touch 4 revolutionised mobile gaming. It enabled the device to detect movement up and down, rotation around gravity and vastly improved the accuracy over the accelerometer in the previous models. In conjunction with the acclerometer and compass, the iPhone 4 is now able to detect movement in any axis, which makes for some stunning games. In this AppGuide, I will outline which games make best use of the gyroscope.
