Out Here Archery: an Augmented Reality game with a bow and arrow
Augmented Reality games and apps are still a fairly new thing. They will use your phone's camera and place virtual objects in the “real world”, observed through your display. Then, the player gets to interact with the virtual items.

Out Here Archery is one such game — it lets you shoot a virtual bow and arrow in your living room or outside in the field. Your goal is to hit an amount of balloons for a limited time and you've got booster items to help you out — some slow down time, others freeze the balloons around the booster object.

The game has two modes — one that requires you to actually move around as you are hunting the balloons down and a “limited mobility mode”, which allows you to play from the comfort of your own sofa, as the movement and distance limitations are removed.

Playing is simple — look around and aim with your phone in portrait mode. Drag down on the display to draw an arrow, release to shoot.

It's a free game and a fun timekiller. Check it out below!

Interesting. A good way to use AR.
