I’m looking to get into mobile development, or at least try it out. For this I’m wanting to create a simple “tower defense” game where you operate a “turret” and shoot incoming hostiles. However since my phone doesn’t have a gyroscope I’m unable to create a more natural feeling aiming system where you move the phone around you in a VR like motion to aim…
I do however have an accelerometer (which I assume most mobile devices have now?) which allows me to aim the tutret, but doesn’t feel very natural as you’re just tilting the screen to aim… See the place below on mobile to see what I mean.
Other then possibly increasing the rotation speed, what else would I need to do to make it feel more natural?
Also as a note, looking horizontally might be inverted for IOS users. Don’t know if this true or not as I’m android.
