Riptide GP2 and Beach Buggy Blitz Get Updated With KitKat Immersive Mode
Android 4.4 KitKat was made famous not only for its new UI, but also several other cool features, that include the “immersive mode” for games and apps. This means that if you play the game on a device with virtual buttons, they will disappear and give you more gaming space.
The developers have the option to hide the status and nav bars in the apps, for a fully fullscreen experience. That has arrived right now on the famous titles Riptide GP2 and Beach Buggy Blitz, that give you access to the full screen estate. Vector Unit is offering the features via updates, so be sure to update your games.
If you’re playing them on the Nexus 5 or Moto X for example, the nav and status bars will be gone during games, but they’ll be back when performing a swipe from the top or right bezel. Having played Assassin’s Creed on the LG G2 with those annoying buttons on screen, I have to say this was a needed feature.
