Are you up to the challenge? How long can you play before you are completely dizzy?
A totally new twist on a retro classic, DizzyRoids takes the old school fun of shooting asteroids and flips it on its head.
Using the built-in compass on the iPhone 3GS or touch controls on any iPhone or iPod Touch you'll be blasting asteroids and getting dizzy in no time.
In a unique control mode with the compass in the 3GS, you actually control the rotation of your ship by turning yourself around in the real world. Just make sure you have plenty of open space and somewhere to sit down when you get dizzy!
The only thing more fun than playing DizzyRoids with the compass is handing your phone to a friend and watching them spin around while shooting and dodging asteroids.
Don't have a fancy 3GS phone? No problem, you can play with touchscreen controls and still have the universe spinning wildly about you! Or switch to the easy classic controls, where only your ship spins instead of the whole universe.
- Unique compass controls on the iPhone 3GS
- Touch controls for older devices
- Infinite levels of increasingly frantic play
- Global online high scores, via the AGON leaderboard service
- Full stereo sound effects
- Retro style play with graphics options, photo-realistic or cartoon

NOTE: DizzyRoids only uses the compass to see what direction you are facing to play the game, it doesn't look up or store your GPS location.

Ratings and Reviews
"May cause dizziness" No kidding....
ROFLMAO... well it's actually cause I fell to the floor LOL. Holy molly! "May cause dizziness" No Kidding. Made others dizzy watching me LOL.
It's like a typical asteroid game with a twist. With a twist of your body that is. Ever keep your head down fixed on something while spinning around. Give it a shot, dare ya. If that's not a challenge for ya try saving the universe from asteroids while your at it. The game plays very well. Don't worry non spinners, there's a mode without the spinning which we all will go to every now and then to make the dizziness stop. This is a fun fun game. It will auto-select the mode pending on your location services being on or off.
Uber fun so far but head's still spinning.
Fun for the 3gs
It is a new experience playing compass based games. And it might bring a little of the wii's nostalgia to mind. I love asteroids, this physical movement stuff ends up being pretty fun, try a swivel chair or just turning on foot in circles!
