This is the first app that I have seen that in order for you to control the game you have to use your body strength and put your balancing to the act. The game is controlled by balance boards through bluetooth. It is fun for kids and adults. Chelsea really enjoys making the ball hit the bars. So far we have made it to level 3 before losing all of our lives. We keep trying to beat our high score. This game allows kids and adults the opportunity to get active and practice your balancing. This day and age there is too much lying around and sitting down while playing games. We need more games like this in the world.
A Little Background of the Game:
Swingy is the world’s first wireless balance board for playing games on tablets and smartphones. It is made of wood and designed for children aged 4 to 12. Swingy stimulates children to move while playing digital games, enhances their sense of balance, and improves their coordination. In short, Swingy helps children become active and agile.
The Swingy balance boards are equipped with sensors that wirelessly connect to a tablet or smartphone. Each balance board then controls one of the parameters on the screen. This means children are playing digital games with their legs. Swingy combines entertainment with a beneficial exercise important for your children’s balance and healthy posture. It also develops fitness habits by integrating active time into playtime.
The Swingy application is the tech upgrade of the Swingy balance boards. The boards are equipped with inertial sensors which connect with the application and enable the Swingy app user to play games with their feet.
The first game is called Swing Pong. Each sensor controls one of the sliders on the screen. The goal of the game is to keep the ball in play by intercepting it with one of the sliders. Power-ups randomly appear on the screen in the shape of forest fruits and animals. Forest fruits give lives, increase the size of the ball or the sliders, or decrease the speed of the ball. The animals either shrink the ball or the sliders, or increase the speed of the ball.
