Scoops of Van Leeuwen’s summer ice cream flavors will be thrown towards the player with increasing speeds and it is down to the player to stack as many scoops as possible. Miss a scoop and it will splat on the screen, blocking the view of other incoming scoops. Once more, the title is able to be played alone or with others as a multiplayer AR experience.
