App of the Day: Crash Course 3D: Ice

Whether you play in 3D or 2D, this is one of the coolest space shooter mobile games we've seen.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

So, we all know space shooters, right? Well, what if instead of just going in one direction, you zoomed around a sphere (maybe a planet, maybe an asteroid; who knows?) of a planet, shooting baddies? Just bearing that mechanic in mind, Crash Course 3D: Ice is a really fun little game. But ... wait, what's this about 3D? Not only is the game played over a three-dimensional surface, but it can also be viewed in 3D — provided, of course, that you have anaglyph 3D glasses.

It actually works really well, and the depth of the 3D is adjustable to your comfort level. Seriously, this is the coolest (ho ho) take on space shooters we've seen in quite a while.
