AR star smash

Compatible models: iPhone (iOS 11.0 or later)
Difficulty: ★★★ ☆☆
Operability: ★★★★ ☆
Exhilaration: ★★★★★
Overall: ★★★★ ☆
"AR Star Smash" that can be played on iPhone with iOS 11.0 or later is an AR action game that you can play while actually walking around. You can experience AR sports in a 3.5m x 2.5m virtual space created in the real world.

The rules are very simple. You can move on to the next stage by hitting the flying ball with a racket and punching out all the star-marked panels on the stage. Also, if you switch the attributes of the racket with an analog stick, the type of ball to be launched will change, such as a power shot that erases the surrounding panel and a split shot that splits the ball. Switching between these shots is the key to breaking through the stage.

And above all, the time limit that makes the game hot is 3 minutes. If you miss the ball or the player hits the panel, there is a penalty that the remaining time is reduced by 5 seconds, so you need to concentrate and be accurate on each ball.

Instead of using the controller as a racket, we will punch out the star-marked panel. At first (even at the tutorial stage) I found it quite difficult to punch out the panel I was aiming for. As I gradually got used to the interlocking movements of the controller and racket, the score gradually increased, and I realized the fun of this game. The feeling of exhilaration when you can punch out the panel you are looking for is also great!

Also, the panel that could not be punched out for a certain period of time flew toward the player, but I was thrilled to feel that the panel approaching in front of me was a reality. 3 minutes to feel that you are more focused than you think. After playing, there is a comfortable feeling of fatigue that is not found in (traditional) games where you sit and play.

AR Blade Gunner

Compatible models: iPhone (iOS 11.0 or later)
Difficulty: ★★★ ☆☆
Operability: ★★★★ ☆
Intensity of movement: ★★★★★
Overall: ★★★★ ☆
AR action game "AR Blade Gunner" that defeats enemy soldiers appearing in the real space while actually walking around. Use a laser gun or laser blade that can be operated with a dedicated controller to defeat the enemy and aim for a high score.
The final goal is to defeat the giant robot waiting in the final stage. Enemies appearing on the stage in the middle are defeated by hitting bullets that can be fired with the trigger button, but it is necessary to use different weapons depending on the distance to the enemy.

There are two types of guns that perform medium- and long-range attacks: the "BURST" that can fire continuously and the powerful "CHARGE". The point is to switch according to the situation, such as BURST when there are many enemies and CHARGE for durable enemies. By the way, aiming is OK just by pointing the controller toward the enemy, so let's quickly aim at the direction where the enemy appeared and press the trigger button (Note that if you press and release the HOME button for 3 seconds, the aim will be in front of you You can put it back).

One laser blade is used to defeat enemies at close range. Instead of pressing the trigger button, you need to swing the sword down according to the movement of your hand, just like "slashing the enemy with the sword". If you want to move towards an enemy and then slash, or if you want to hunt down an approaching enemy, tilt the analog stick left or right to switch your weapon to a laser blade.

<Experience report>

I felt that it was a little difficult to switch between 3 types of weapons with the controller and aim. If you're worried about choosing a weapon, or if you're struggling to aim, you'll be immediately attacked by the enemy and the game is over.
Not only do I need to defeat the enemies that appear here and there, but I also need to avoid attacks by hiding in obstacles between them, so when I noticed, I played while moving my body violently. That's why I feel like I'm moving around in the game world. By playing repeatedly, you can feel your progress, so you can play for a long time without getting bored.

Voxel Shot VR Mobile Lite / Voxel Shot VR Mobile [LITE]

Compatible models: iPhone (iOS 7.0 or later) / Android 5.0 or later
Difficulty: ★★★ ☆☆
Operability: ★★★★ ☆
Cuteness: ★★★ ☆☆
Overall: ★★★ ☆☆
"Voxel Shot VR Mobile Lite" (Android version is written in English) is a VR action game where you use weapons such as hand guns to defeat zombies, helicopters, tanks, etc. that appear one after another. Zombies look cute, but they're pretty strong! In addition, since the VR function can be switched on and off within the app, you can play without a VR device as long as you have a smartphone.

The operation method is very simple. While aiming the hand gun with the controller, press the trigger button to attack the enemies that appear one after another. In order to avoid attacks from the rooftops of distant buildings, you need to move and avoid them, and defeat not only surrounding zombies but also distant enemies, so concentration and observation are also required.

<Experience report>

Since the controller basically uses only the trigger button and the rules are simple, I felt it was less difficult than the other games introduced here. It is also recommended for beginners, regardless of age or gender, as the characters and world view are pop and easy to enter.

However, the number of zombies that appear is large, and things like grenades may be suddenly thrown from a distance, so if you are not careful, you will lose your life in a blink of an eye. The point is to aim at the head and kill the zombies in one shot.

Also, by turning off the VR mode, you can enjoy it only with your smartphone. However, it is only in VR mode that you can enjoy the real feeling of standing in the game world and the thrill of zombies approaching you! If you want an overwhelming sense of immersion and exhilaration, there's no point in turning off VR.

VR Star Elude 2

Compatible models: iPhone (iOS 9.0 or later) / Android 5.0 or later
Difficulty: ★★★★ ☆
Operability: ★★★★ ☆
Feeling of speed: ★★★★ ☆
Overall: ★★★★ ☆
"VR Star Elude 2" runs through the SF city while wearing VR goggles and avoiding the approaching obstacles. Like "Voxel Shot VR Mobile Lite", there are normal mode and VR mode, and in normal mode you can play as a normal game app. In VR mode, you can enjoy the exhilaration of running around the real and three-dimensional virtual reality world at high speed.

"VR Star Elude" does not require a controller and can be played only with VR goggles and a smartphone. While moving your head from side to side, operate the main character (aircraft) that flies at high speed to advance through the field. On the way, obstacle walls will appear while expanding and contracting, so it is important not to hit them. It is important to increase the flight distance, but it is also a goal to compete for the score, so let's accumulate points by occasionally passing and touching the ring that appears on the field. You can also enjoy changing the field as the flight distance increases.

<Experience report>

It was the most difficult and crazy game of the four games I played this time, despite the simple operability and rules of wearing VR goggles and moving my head. The speed of the aircraft is faster than expected, and when playing for the first time, it starts and collides with an obstacle in an instant and crashes. As you get used to it, you will gradually have more time to pass the bonus points, and you can enjoy playing aiming for a high score. However, since you move your head from side to side during play, you need to be careful when playing continuously for a long time.

Also, like "Voxel Shot VR", I turned off the VR mode and tried playing with just a smartphone, but it is finished to a level that can be enjoyed without problems. Even so, the sprinting feeling of actually riding a machine and the thrill of avoiding obstacles at the last minute are the real pleasures of VR mode.

Enjoy new sensation games with the latest AR equipment
By combining a smartphone, goggles, and a controller dedicated to AR / VR apps, you can easily enjoy new sensation games that have never been seen before.
Many people may be addicted to the feeling that they can experience as if they had landed in the game world, rather than through the screen of a TV or the like as in conventional games. If you are enjoying ordinary games on so-called home video game consoles or smartphones and have not experienced AR or VR, please try high quality AR / VR games.

What is an AR card? Basic knowledge of AR cards you want to know and how to make them
Basic knowledge of AR cards and how to make them
Some people may think that AR content is something that you can enjoy by receiving something provided by someone, such as a game or an application. However, you can also create your own AR content and enjoy it, or have someone enjoy it. Of course, full-scale AR content production requires specialized knowledge because it uses tools, but there is an "AR card" as an AR content that anyone can easily create.
Therefore, this time, we have summarized the creation procedure while introducing examples of AR cards to see what kind of AR content AR cards are.

What is an AR card?

What is an AR card? image
An AR card is a card that provides a service in which various 3D contents can be seen popping out on the screen of a smartphone or the like simply by reading the code printed on the card. The viewing method is simple, just use a camera such as a smartphone or tablet and scan the code printed on the card through a dedicated app or software. If the loading is successful, you can enjoy 3D animations and videos. In addition to services for the general public, it is also possible to display (view) message videos and music for specific parties.

Example of AR card produced by a company
First, let's see what kind of cases there are as AR contents that actually utilize AR cards.

・ Matsuya Ginza Valentine Fair x AR Card

Department store Matsuya Ginza has set up a photo spot at the Valentine's Day fair venue in 2018 that you can enjoy with the free AR app "COCOAR2". When you scan the "heart marker" on the wall with the app, a Valentine's Day photo frame will appear on the screen, and you can shoot the original "AR Valentine's card". In addition to being able to record and shoot, I was also able to jump to the event page from the link button on the shooting screen.

This project, which targets young women, is also conscious of creating a photogenic space that shines on SNS, and can be said to be a method of using AR cards aimed at attracting customers and promoting sales.

・ Nintendo 3DS x AR card

AR games are typically those that can be played on Nintendo 3DS. When you purchase the main body of 3DS, a set of 6 AR cards is included. By using the software called "AR Games" installed on the main unit from the beginning and the camera function, you can play by displaying the character printed on the AR card in 3D. The appearance of the character changes depending on the angle, distance, and brightness of the room.

・ Glico "Almond Peak" x AR card collaboration

Glico's "Almond Peak" held a campaign to enclose an AR card. The AR card is included in the package with the campaign notation, and when you scan it with the dedicated free app, the character will pop out of the screen or start singing as it is. So far, we have collaborated with "Hatsune Miku" and "Shironeko Tennis".

How to make an AR card
Next, let's check the flow of creating an AR card and the points to note when creating it.

Image of how to make an AR card
App and card required to create AR card
Many apps and dedicated cards that can create AR cards have been released. Let's start by downloading the app and testing its usability.
The procedure for creating is slightly different depending on the application, but the basic flow of combining frames with videos and images does not change. However, what all apps have in common is that you first need to prepare the videos and images you want to make into 3D content. In addition, card paper is also required for apps that you print and make yourself.

AR card type

The main types of AR cards are as follows.

・ A type that can send a message video to the other party
・ A type that displays the character on the card in 3D
・ A type for watching animations and videos in 3D according to the card code
・ A type that plays in conjunction with game software
What you can do with your own AR card
If you create an original AR card, you can deliver the message in a new form called AR content. You can also enjoy leaving your memorable photos, videos, animations, etc. as 3D data. It is also possible to make a greeting card such as a birthday card into an AR card and give it together with a 3D video.

Precautions when making an AR card
Image of points to note when making an AR card
Here are some points to keep in mind when creating an AR card. Especially for AR cards that you print yourself, it is important to know the difference in paper selection and printing method, so check before starting work.

・ When preparing a video, make sure it fits within the time limit.
・ Check the AR availability period
・ Do not bend or stain the reading part of the AR card.
・ If the paper size is specified, follow it.
-If there is a color specification, print with an inkjet printer
・ Avoid glossy paper and print on matte paper
-Print on thick paper to prevent bending
Also, pay particular attention to the fact that if you enlarge or reduce the original size when printing, you may not be able to read normally or watch.

Let's make an original AR card
By making an AR card yourself, you can not only expand the way you enjoy games, but also enjoy common photos and videos from a different perspective. If you don't come up with an idea right away, you can use a project that collaborates with a company's products or events and an AR card (technology) as a hint for creating an AR card.

The AR card, which can be easily created with the app and surprises the recipient, is an item that will attract more and more attention in the future as a gift of your own that cannot be imitated by others. Why don't you try it once while it hasn't spread to that extent yet?
