Please visit the Digital-Double website below to see a video of this game in action, it's the best way to describe it! This game is fantastic on an iPhone4 or iPodTouch4, it's REALLY AWSOME on the iPad2!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: This game requires 4th generation devices (specifically, iPhone4, iPodTouch 4th Generation, or iPad2), it is NOT compatible with lower spec. devices due to hardware requirements.
With POCKET JETS (AR) you take full 360 degree flight-control over a futuristic 'Gyro-Jet' as you steer it through the REAL-WORLD environment surrounding YOU!
Pocket Jets uses the gyroscope in your device to convincingly and smoothly blend 3D graphics and sound with your camera’s view to deliver a truly immersive experience.
Fly your Jet over YOUR home, around YOUR garden, or in YOUR living room, wherever you are, it's like you are flying a remote-controlled plane, only bigger and louder. If it's too dark to use the camera you can choose one of the built in virtual locations instead.
A Training-Mode allows you to learn how to control and track your Jet's movements. Gyro-Jets are loud and fast - you can perform high-speed overhead passes, acrobatic barrel-rolls, and noisy low fly-bys. An on-screen compass helps you to know exactly where your Jet is at any time.
But that's not all... because you are not alone in the skies!
That's OK though, your Jet is equipped with advanced weaponry.
A Target-Practice mode allows you to try attacking formations against Enemy Jets and use the onboard combat systems to target, and take them down with heat-seeking missiles and short-range mini-guns.
In Evade-Practice you become the target! Here you will master tactical moves needed to prevent Enemies from locking on to you, or failing that, avoid their fire with evasive moves.
POCKET JETS (AR) includes different enemies, ranging from passive Missile-Fodder through to Elite AI opponents who mean business, and will be second guessing your next move. Once you think you've mastered the training, you can switch to Dog-Flight Modes and engage in full-scale battles for air supremacy.
Wherever you are, inside or out, POCKET JETS (AR) brings the action to YOU in a unique experience that is only possible with handheld devices. Good luck!

This app deserves to be Featured of something.
As far as I know, there is nothing else like this in the app store.
There are still some bugs, for example the altitude joystick is extremely finicky (barely works) and it seems like the AR could be a bit more accurate.
However this is still incredible and very well done so far!
Awesome New update fix for iPad 2
This game plays great on the iPad 2. Really cool game and idea! Awesome graphics when integrated with the ipad 2 camera. Definitely recommended. I have emailed the developer, the support he gives is great. All around awesome app!
Was the first game I paid for and it won't even load just shows home page. I only put one star wish I could put no star.
