Break a Sweat With AR Runner
If you are in need of an app that challenges you physically, then this AR fitness game just might reach your expectations.
We’ve shown you a variety of augmented reality apps like Inkhunter, where you get to try on tattoo designs, and Wonderscope, a series of interactive AR books. But if you are someone who can’t sit still and are in need of something that challenges you physically, then today’s app just might reach your expectations.
Semidome is a company in Toronto that commits to amplifying the digital experience. They have beautiful, breathtaking games like Darkwave, Nightgate, and Last Voyage, with our app of the week, AR Runner officially joining their list in 2017.
AR Runner is an app that encourages you to break a sweat by placing virtual checkpoints into your location. Your objective is to run through as many checkpoints as you can in record time. The game gives you a variety of field sizes and shapes, so you won’t get bored of playing one for too long. And if you beat a score, you’ll earn a special place on their scoreboard!
The app also has different game modes with a different set of directions. If you want to play a warm-up round, you can simply walk through the checkpoints in a specific order. But if you want a more advanced session, you can complete the checkpoints while having to actively avoid enemy blocks.
The Washington Post promises that AR Runner “gets you moving, no matter where you are” while Macworld compliments the app’s creative usage of the ARKit. AR Runner is a featured game in the App Store with minimal rules and lighthearted competition— and there’s no denying that it can easily become an everyday tool for daily exercise or simple fun.
No matter what level of difficulty you choose, your body will eventually thank you for all the walking, running, and punching (yes, punching) you do during your gameplay. So put away your addiction to time-consuming apps, and embrace what AR Runner has to offer!
But enough about other people's apps.
