Palm OS games developer ToySpring has updated its novel shoot-'em-up Arcade Reality - a game that superimposed alien attackers onto the output of a Palm Treo's digicam.

ToySpring Arcade Reality for Palm's Treo

Not so much virtual reality as altered reality, ToySpring's title uses the real world as a backdrop for its arcade action. The game detects changes in the camera display to sense how you're moving in its own 3D world. So if there's a nasty behind you, turning round will bring it into view.

At the same time, it's an homage to the golden age of arcade gaming too, pitching the player against beings with more than a passing similarity to space invaders, Pac-Man ghosts, flying saucers, asteroids and Star Wars TIE fighters. There's even a fire-breathing dragon.
