Save Your Own Face In SkinVaders

The stakes have never been higher. This time, it’s not some far-off city or world under attack from hostile alien forces. It’s your own face! SkinVaders is an Augmented Reality game that uses the front-facing camera of the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to use your own face as the battleground, where you will need to destroy alien forces and pop alien eggs before they can hatch. There are nine levels kids can play through, with the action getting progressively more hectic.

The SkinVaders App is available now off the iTunes App Store for free, which is a sweet deal for this kind of emerging technology. Your kids can get into the game like never before. As an added bonus, you can tell them this is what happens when you get acne, in an effort to convince them to commit to good facial hygiene early on.
