If you have ever wanted to star alongside a Disney character, then this is the game for you. Disney: Infinity Action! Allows users to create their own mini movie using the camera on their tablet.
There are four different characters to choose from: Mr Incredible, Jack Sparrow, Sulley, and for a small fee, Jack Skellington.
Before you start recording, first thing is to discover all the different moves the characters can make. There are a variety of actions they can perform by tapping or swiping the screen.
The characters interact with one another when you swap them around, and they can also play with a variety of objects from Toy Story, such as Buzz's wings, a bouncy ball, and walkie talkie.
Each character will interact differently with these objects, and can be rather entertaining to watch the first time round. Second time it gets as a bit boring though.
Once you've cycled through all the actions available, you can choose to make a movie. For this you need to download the actions you want. Most of these are free, but it does mean using up extra memory on your tablet. This will quickly get eaten up if you want to download all the actions.
The key component to making a movie is the camera on your tablet. The idea is to hold the camera up against a background, such a park or street, and you can have friend stand in front performing if you like. The scene will be recorded, while the character on the tablet is 'pasted' like it were standing in front of a green screen.
But this is all dependent on the quality of your camera. My camera only shoots towards me - I.E. if I lay it flat, I just get a shot of the ceiling. That means if you record a character, while holding the tablet you will only get them with a background of your face, which a movie does not make.
My overall opinion is this game is a novelty, and that after your first couple of recordings, you'll quickly tire of it.
