Xappr Gun Peripheral For Games on Mobile Analyzed
The folks of Pocket Gamer are having a look at a very interesting accessory for mobile, a gaming peripheral that may make you think of the Wii gun that looks pretty much. Metal Compass released this gun peripheral back in June 2012, priced at $59.99 and called it the Xappr. Here it is:
The Xappr may remind you more of a prop from the Star Wars movie rather than a real gun. It’s still a pretty solid piece of kit, one made of plastic, but it doesn’t feel cheap. It also doesn’t feel it’s going to break if you grip it too tight, like some budget handsets we know. It features a trigger, a retractable cable that plugs into the device’s 3.5 mm audio jack and a cushioned clamp that uses a rubber grip to hold your handset into place.
In order to get the Xappr to work you will need 3 AAA batteries, that you insert into its lower area. Various games on the Play Store and Windows Phone Store have been created with support for this accessory. You need to download the MetalCompass app from here in order to get going and easily find those titles. Ready for this gaming experience?
