Angry Birds game, the first augmented reality has been released for the iPhone and iPad. The game has been developed with Apple’s ARKit technology, a set of tools which allows developers to build games and other apps with the support of augmented reality for smartphones.
With AR, one can physically walk around as structures overlaid onto objects in your environment to find weak elements, identify different angles for the best accuracy, as well as uncover hidden surprises to take on the green pigs, earn more points and unlock more content – Rovio
The new AR version of the game enables players to move around the 3D towers and approach each level from different angles and unique perspectives, the developers say. However, the new Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs is the first AR game that Rovio is making that will be accessible to a wider audience as long as you have an iPhone that has iOS 12 on.
The gameplay seems much similar to the VR: Isle of Pigs game that launched out earlier, except players can bring the game into their environment instead of viewing it on a headset.
Given that this year marks the 10th anniversary since the first Angry Birds game has been released, it’s interesting to see the different ways Rovio has been encouraging us to enjoy flinging disgruntled avian creatures around.
