Portsmouth-based game developer Climax Studios has pushed into AR with its new game ARise built specifically for Apple's ARKit.
The game has players directing their character around a game world that appears on their screens in the real world. Players must physically look around the environment to view objects at a certain perspective to guide the hero along.
It is a premium title, costing $2.99/£2.99. Additional DLC will be released for free over the coming months.
From another angle
"By using perspective, exploration, angles and almost no controls, we hope we have created a fresh game play experience that will develop over time," said Simon Gardner, CEO of Climax Studios.
"With ARKit we were able to leverage the power of the iPhone and iPad's built-in camera, processors and motion sensors, to easily build ARise, which is a highly detailed and compelling virtual game that sits on top of the real world."
