Very soon the Leap Motion Controller and Airspace, the app store for it, will launch. So it is a good time to have a look at the games that wait for the eager gamer.
I have used the Leap Motion almost daily for the past few months, so to be honest I am no longer that easily impressed. I noticed that my reviews sometimes are much harsher than the reactions some titles get from fresh users. So please consider this and if you think a game looks interesting, ignore my ramblings and just go for it. Most games are very cheap anyway and you want to play with your new toy right?
If you want to save some time at the end you find a short list of the games I personally deem absolutely must play titles. But at least read the categories I use to group the games, that might be of interest for your decisions.
3D control games, these really use the ability of the Leap to sense your position in 3D space. This group is rather small.
2.5D control games, this group adds some controls that would not be possible with a touchscreen.
2D control games – or the touchscreen conversion group. These games are actually touchscreen games or at least limit interaction to touchscreen mechanics that work with the Leap. Not really a bad thing, titles like Fruit Ninja really get a kick from the Leaps precision and reaction time without the need to obscure the view! This is currently the main group, and since it allows developers to target many platforms, will stay the biggest group I guess.
