Keeping fit is really important, but sometimes it can be so boring! That’s why Ubisoft is working on Shape Up, a cool game for Xbox One that turns exercise into a fun arcade game full of high scores, bright colours, and crazy challenges. Andy from Family Gamer TV has been to see Shape Up in action in this video.
Shape Up uses the increased power of the Xbox One and the accuracy of the new Kinect sensor to read your body movements and turn them into instructions for the game. By doing all your usual exercises like push-ups, jumps, crunches, and kicks, you control the game. The better you do, the more points you’ll earn. You’ll also have to do specific exercises to complete the challenges in the game which score you big points. There’s a great competitive element too, as two players can work out on the same screen and try to beat each other’s scores.
