Augmented reality is a new concept. The best way I can explain it is that it combines reality and the virtual world. You put virtual objects into the real world, and there are also some really fun augmented reality games, specifically for iOS devices.

Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO AR combines the world around you with the game. You can walk around your city, catch Pokemons, and fight other Pokemon Go trainers. The AR allows players to see Pokemon in their physical environment.

Even if you have never played and watched Pokemon before, this game will get you hooked, especially if you are new to AR; it’s like playing a video game for the first time.

Angry Birds AR

Angry Birds is a global phenomenon. It was released in 2009. In Angry Birds, players use a slingshot to launch birds at structures with the goal of knocking down pigs that are strategically placed on or within them. Now, with the help of LiDAR, AR technology, you can use the slingshot and knock down the pigs in your living room, bedroom, office, or wherever.

AR Sports

With two exciting game options – basketball and dartboard – ARSports provides a variety of gameplay experiences.
