The inevitable infantile drawings aside, this game is a wonderful display of augmented reality. Honestly, I could easily see myself sitting around a display table, drinking beers and betting on our ships as they blasted each other off the map.
Each combatant is drawn by the player on a game card that is scanned into the game by a camera, and the stats of your ship are determined by the shape, size and colours used to create it.
It was nominated for the ‘Award for Technical Excellence’ at the 2011 FITC Awards, and won the award for ‘Best Experimental Flash’
Doodle War gets my vote.
