Active Arcade is a motion controlled set of puzzle and action games. You control the action in the game by standing in front of your smartphone camera and moving your body, arms and hands.

The app offers access to a growing library of games. The experience and level of challenge in each game varies but they are all family friends. The current games include: Reaction, Box Attack, Whack-a-Mole, Bunny Hop, Space Pong, SuperHits High Kicks, Cone Knockout, Galaxy Jumpers, Laser Dodge, Pose! and Reaction Flow.

Space Pong is a popular offering where you bat a ball back at opponents in two player battles. Bunny Hop takes things further by allowing you to control the on-screen bunny and jump to progress up to the next levels. Whack A Mole offers a simpler but no less exuberant reaction-based challenge.
