Universal Pictures has debuted an Augmented Reality Flamethrower game for iPhone and Android users. Players must use their flamethrower in a 360-degree environment to ward off attacking alien creatures. Users can also "infect" themselves and, with facial-recognition software, players can see what they would look like if they were actually infected. Take a look at some screenshots from this game below.
