Tilt and swerve your phone to fly your balloon through an array of different missions and enemies. Use cannons, missiles and bombs to blast your way to victory!
* Simple, fun, addictive gameplay. No tutorials and complex controls - just point and shoot!
* Online highscores for comparing your skills with your friends and the rest of humanity!
* Stereoscopic 3D visuals on LG and HTC 3D handsets** (limited trial).
* Red+cyan stereoscopic 3D on devices without 3D screens and faces wearing 3D glasses (limited trial).
* Stereo sound effects as your enemies buzz around you and attack from all sides!
* Runs on older, lower-spec devices such as the HTC Desire.
* Support for the XAPPR gaming gun.
Required app permissions:
* WAKE_LOCK stops the screen from switching off if there's a break in the firing.
* INTERNET & ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE are used by both the in-game ads and analytics, which are common app features.
* BILLING is for the new in-app purchases feature. You don't have to buy anything, of course, and it's all handled through Android Market, so there's no way to make purchases by accident.
If you spot any bugs or if the app doesn't work for any reason, please let us know. We can't fix things we don't know about! :-)
* There's no "on-screen controls" option! The reason for this is simply that we haven't seen an on-screen controls system that works well for this kind of pick-up-and-play game. Also, people have commented that tilt controls aren't suitable for stereoscopic 3D. This true in principle, but we recommend that you set the control sensitivity to high in Options, as this will allow you to minimize the tilting and therefore preserve the 3D effect. We believe this is a better solution than on-screen controls, so give it a try!
* There are occasional judders in the gameplay. This is usually caused by animation in the in-game adverts (which can be removed via an in-app purchase).
* Help, I'm seeing double! Sounds like you have the anaglyph stereo 3D turned on by mistake, so go to the Options screen and turn it off by setting "Stereo 3D Depth" to zero.

TOUCHSCREEN TIPS (Because touch-screens aren't all alike!):
* If you find "double swipes" unreliable on your device, try targeting baddies which are further apart.
* If the fire rings seem unreliable, try leaving a slight pause between hitting the button and positioning the ring.
* If you're playing on a device with a screen resolution lower than 800x480... good luck! :-)
* Some screens are simply less reliable than others, but we wanted to make the game available to as many people as possible. If you feel you're being cheated out of mega-scores by the game, just consider that it *may* be down your device. Feel free to email us about your experiences!
* On some dual core devices running Android 2.3 or lower you may experience crashes or freezes. This is an Android issue, so if it bothers you, play with "Effect Volume" set to zero and it won't happen.
* Help, I'm seeing double! Sounds like you have the anaglyph stereo 3D turned on by mistake, so go to the Options screen and turn it off by setting "3D Depth" to zero.
* The game slows down when there's a lot going on! We tried to make Hordz compatible with lower-end devices, but sometimes they get a bit overwhelmed by its awesomeness. If you experience this, try setting "3D Depth" and "Music Volume" to zero and restarting the level.
* There are no zombies. Sorry. :-)
