In the last article we learned about touch input and gestures, which probably is the first choice for user input in most games on the phone.

For example, Microsoft's game "Kombo" that was available on the phone very early proved that using the accelerometer as primary input for a game is very well possible (give it a try, it's free). In this part of the series we will learn how you can use this type of data for input and take a peek at advanced topics and further resources. As always, the source code of all samples is available for download.
