Do you like Frank Miller? Does the ’Sin City’ art style blow your mind? If it does you should check out SXPD. Part comic and part racing shooter, it really shows how the iPad could be a perfect device for a new type of playable comics. It’s seriously awesome. Check out the trailer.
I will warn you that the writing is pretty bad. SXPD relies on the visuals to carry it but that's not a bad thing. The game portion of the app makes use of the gyroscope and you steer a motorcycle by moving the iPad around. It just feels like you’re really leaning into curves.
The app could set the stage for the next generation of comics by mixing them with video games. While gameplay would have to add to the experience I really could see this as a blueprint for the evolution of comics.
(There is no official connection between SXPD and Sin City. SXPD just borrows the visual theme.)
