UK-based indie developer Combo has released two augmented reality (AR) experience to date, the rather quirky Pigeon Panic and the rather scary dARk: Subject One, both for iOS devices using ARKit. Today, the studio has launched its third title, a Micro Machines style AR videogame called Room Racer.
This miniature AR racer has a single-player mode so gamers can race on 12 pre-created tracks, clocking up their best racing times against a CPU, all of which will be registered on the leaderboards. Players can gain advantages by using one of four power-ups to overthrow their opponent like missiles or a giant laser.
If you don’t happen to be on your own then there’s always the multiplayer mode for a proper challenge against a mate.
The core of the title revolves around the fully-featured track editor. This allows you to build unique tracks wherever you are, making them as complicated or as simple as you like. You’ll also be able to add scenery such as trees for a more authentic looking race track then share and race on them with friends, or against the CPU.
Additional features include the lap leaderboards also working for custom tracks and players being able to win custom paint jobs for their cars.
Room Racer has launched today for $1.99 USD/€1.59 EUR/$1.99 CAD/£1.29 GBP, compatible on all iPhones 5SE+, and iPad Pro models (2017) and later. Check out a short gameplay video below to see what Room Racer is all about. For any further updates from Combo on future AR titles, keep reading VRFocus.
