Just take out your phone and start shooting at other players.

Upright Media Concepts have just released their iPhone app called MobileWar and it's the world's first real multiplayer GPS shooting game using the iPhone as a shooting device.

MobileWar lets players point and shoot at eachother using nothing else but their mobile phone.

"We already had an Android version, but with the iPhone version of MobileWar most phone users in the world will now be able to play this realistic shooting game. It's a lot like paintball, lasergame and could also be compared to Nerf. But for this game you do not need any materials. Just take out your phone and you're good to go" says CEO Jacco Gruiters.

Unlike a recent kickstarter project where a special toygun with infrared is used to shoot at eachother, MobileWar uses GPS. "Both solutions have their pros and cons. The infrared is better at close range, where GPS is good for distances of 10 meter and up. One of the biggest benefits is that you do not have to buy any extra equipment and you can play it whenever you like wherever you are."

In MobileWar Players get killscores when they hit their opponents and deathscores when getting hit themselves. Bullet counting is a must as players need to actually reload their weapon to continue shooting.

The game uses both GPS and the accelerometer inside the phone. By using different international servers fast gameplay is possible in all continents especially when using 3G or 4G/LTE networks. MobileWar can be played on iPhone 3G,3GS,4,4S and iPhone 5. Players will need a data subscription or a wifi connection to be able to play MobileWar.

MobileWar is available from September 2012 on the Appstore for $ 1.99 or 1.59 EUR
