Augmented Reality Game ‘Arcade Shooter’ Released to App Store

Augmented reality was somewhat of a dream to me when I saw videos of it working on other platforms, but little did I know this dream would come true.  It first started out with the release of the 3.1 firmware, allowing developers to release augmented reality applications and games.  acrossair took it to the next level by releasing 11 augmented reality apps, all related to places.  Freeverse also tried their luck in augmented reality by releasing Fairy Trails for $1.99, but the game itself looks somewhat uninteresting.

Developed by Toyspring and published by Chillingo, Arcade Reality falls right in between those games with a boom and a splash.  Alien invaders are invading your world, and you must stop them via compass feature and fire button.  I have yet to try out the game, but the augmented reality aspect is more than meets the eye.  We should have a review up for this game sooner or later, but for now check out how it works through this video.


(Please note the guy in the video is not that good)

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
