Despite online documentation support and instructions charitably described as a nightmare, early impressions of the Hover Camera are decent — but only time, and usage will ultimately tell the tale.

‘Hover Disc 3’ Out Now, Features Fun Curling-Inspired Action with Apple TV Support

The fun curling-inspired Hover Disc 3 [] is out today on iOS. This game has you competing in up to 4-player matches as you launch your discs around an arena, trying to get near the center of different target points. Much like curling, you get points for being near the center of the target, and multiple discs in the target give you multiple points, with more points for being closer to the center. You get the points at the end of each turn you complete. But opponents can knock you out, and if they get closer they cancel out your discs. Plus, there’s areas where your discs become unusable, and it’s possible to win despite scoring zero points if your objective is to eliminate your opponent’s discs. There’s a variety of boards to play on, including multiple-target ones.

Hover Disc 3 is free to download with a Pro version IAP and avatar packs to buy, but features support for iOS and tvOS. In fact, you can use your iOS device as a controller for the tvOS version on Apple TV, so you can play with friends around the TV. You can also do hotseat multiplayer with four people taking turns on one device. Online multiplayer is in the game, but I struggled to get it working at launch. However, this could be due to assorted internet or Game Center errors. Thankfully, while you’re waiting for a random match, you can play through the singleplayer training exercises. And, the developers have notifications that you can receive for when various multiplayer sessions are scheduled.
