Two Worlds II: Castle Defense adds Eyetracking technology

This technology probably won't be used much in the future because the iPad 2's gyroscope can probably do the effect easier, but I still think it's a neat way of using a camera. You can check out the effect for free by downloading the Lite version of the game, or you can drop money on the full version.
