Best AR Games for iPhone
Always wished you could play soccer, but the most you could do was play the video game? Here, you have an opportunity to play AR Soccer, a free augmented reality game that utilizes your iPhone's camera. When your camera is pointed at your feet, you will see a ball. All you need to do is kick it on the surface you're walking. Well, that's how you play AR soccer. Yes, it doesn't really suffice for the real soccer, but what the heck? Virtual reality is not that bad.
Paranormal Activity: Sanctuary
Reading the name, you could either give a quick laugh over it, or could shriek. Acknowledged as one of the most sought-after AR games, Paranormal Activity: Sanctuary allows you to look for ghosts and hell holes in real life, by bringing into use some of the most cliched tips, that may, in reality, be a life savior. You get to see the ghost activities through maps, and experience the various effects of the same, all thanks to the virtual reality that makes this game all the more real. Get ready for some sleepless nights with this game.
Caution: Don't play this game right before sleeping. Chances are, not that you wouldn't be able to sleep, but you'd be hooked to it for the night, and get up late!
This game brings into use your GPS location, and places you into a virtual world, where you can avail features such as a virtual aid to the player, level up your character (the person you're playing, not your self-esteem), message other players, bartering, etc. To experience real augmented reality, this game is worth a try, only because it's free of cost! It's a great multi-player game, and wins over many single-player games of similar genre.
Transform your calm, subtle environment into a battleground with Sky Siege, which is a total 'Guy' game. If you're fond of AK-47s, machine guns, and lots of bombardments, this game is your pick of the day. With its killer 3D graphics, it lets you enter the world of mayhem and experience it all from all directions. Even though it doesn't come for free right now (you need to pay $2.99 to download it), this game is worth a try. And when you like it, you won't mourn over the three bucks you had to give away for this one!
Yeah, you guessed it right! On the lines of Ghostbusters, this game is created to find out all the good and evil spirits you're surrounded with.

However, once you turn this app on, you can see them all on your phone. So, serve humanity by shoving the evil spirits away, all with the help of this awesome AR game for your iPhone.
