Gravity Rush:



In the case of Gravity Rush, Kat has a move called “Gravity Slide”. If you hold down on the left and right corners of the Vita touchscreen at the same time, she’ll begin sliding as if she’s on a skateboard. Once she’s doing that, you can tilt the Vita to turn. Running into an enemy while sliding makes her automatically attack them with greater force.


Another skill is called “Stasis Field,” and allows Kat to levitate objects and throw them. This skill can be upgraded over time to levitate more objects at once.


Uncharted: Golden Abyss:



In the case of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, while you still aim using the analog sticks, you can tilt the Vita to finetune your aim. Touch controls are implemented in the game, too, and the trailer above shows how they work.
