Beat Booster is the first motion controlled Kinect game to be converted for PC Play. Current Circus sends you to the lost archipelago world of Bafo for Sonic Jet Racing.
Beat Booster requires no additional hardware or depth camera and will work using the regular web-cam on Windows laptops, desktops and tablets. Players control the Sonic Jet Racer by moving their arms and bodies to steer.
