Yesterday saw the release of the most recent Kinect Fun Labs gadget, Kinect Fun Labs: Battle Stuff
. The title describes the game fairly well. You take regular, everyday items, and scan them using the Kinect sensor. With a little magic, your stuff
appears in your game, and you can battle it out to see who would win in the ultimate matchup of Bag of Chips vs. Cell Phone, or any other matchup you can conceive. Seeing something in your hands transform into a fighter dancing around in a ring is quite entertaining.
The battle is on! Watch your favorite household items step into the ring for bare-knuckle brawls! Scan your stuff to see what kind of fighters they become, and then coach them on to victory!
The gameplay itself isn’t very deep. It’s essentially a match of rock-paper-scissors, except you use simple gestures to perform an attack, counter, or grab. As the match progresses, chunks of your fighter fly off until you’ve completely obliterated them.
What Battle Stuff
lacks in deep gameplay mechanics, it makes up for in price. The gadget is available now for free
, and offers 8 achievements for 50 gamerscore. You can add it to your download queue here
