The First Fun Augmented Reality Game on the iPhone App Store Was Just Submitted

Since September 2009, we have seen many quasi-augmented reality (AR) games on the iphone, some fun concept AR games (on other platforms and devices with no real commercial distribution).

Today I had the pleasure to play the first truly fun, truly AR game on the iphone – and I loved it.

It’s called AR Defender, developed by the talented team and our good friends at Int13.

With close to 30 frames per second – it’s a huge achievement from a technical perspective (even though they are using their proprietary marker).

And it’s looks great. The game play is a mix between a simple table top game, and a typical to Tower of Defense game, nicely adapted for the AR experience. Few seconds into the game you forget you are aiming at a marker and get immersed into the game play – wow!

That together with the fact it’s available on the app store may lead to commercial success that we haven’t seen before with an AR game.

This is VERY encouraging, because Games Are The Killer App For Augmented Reality.

Check it out:

The game should be approved by Apple soon – so when it does – try it and let us know what you think!

  10. When you have your main shape, tear up strips of old newspaper and soak it in a
    water and flour mix – you can use a water and pva mix also
    – then lay the strips over your balls of newspaper. If you have a great training session a healthy protein drink or a steak and salad is what you feel
    like because that is what is going to support the desired outcomes of your exercise routine.
