    What would you do if you were driving along and a real UFO descended from the clouds? Run screaming? Or grab your trusty iPhone and give chase?!
    'UFO on Tape' puts you in the hot seat as you speed through the countryside in hot pursuit of visitors from outer space.

    How much footage will you get, will it be clear, will you be kidnapped and subjected to scientific experiments?
    Only time will tell!

    With photo-realistic graphics, the best use of the gyroscope or accelerometer this side of the vega system, loads of in-game voice dialogue from your hysterical virtual girlfriend, gamecenter scoring, and the kind of elusive 'just one more try' gameplay that keeps you up till the wee hours, 'UFO on Tape' is the ultimate pick up 'n play hi-score chaser!

    The kind of unique gaming experience that is all too rare and will only be found on iOS devices.

    You will believe!

    *Developer Notes:
    An innovative game sometimes needs a bit of background explanation, especially where as in cases like this static screens don't compare to seeing the game in motion :)

    i. Screenshots show actual in-game graphics! UFO on Tape is designed for the iPod Touch and iPhone and does not require or use the iPhone camera in any way.
    ii. It may look uber-realistic (that was the plan:) but we can tell you it does not contain pre-recorded video. It is a highly responsive edge of your seat game that allows you to move anywhere within the game world - not to be confused with so called alternate reality novelty apps.
    iii. The game makes exquisite use of the gyroscope but players with older devices will have just as much fun using the built-in tilt controls.

    UFO on Tape may feel more like a gimmicky title than the usual arcade-fare on the App Store, but its polished presentation and gameplay are unique, fun and second to none.

    I really cannot get enough of it. The scenario and atmospherics are wonderfully creepy.

    As much as I enjoyed playing UFO On Tape, I couldn't help but feel that there just wasn't enough.

    UFO on Tape gives you the uncanny sense that you're actually filming a UFO. That alone is worth the price of admission.

    The concept is a sort of admission of the indubitable existence of intelligent life forms in the universe. Otherwise, I would not have even given the game a second thought.
