iOS augmented reality gaming goes abstract, colourful and funky with reflow
Strike a pose. Collect the flow
New German outfit xymatic has demonstrated an alternative approach however with its new release reflow.New eyes
It takes a real time image or video from your iPhone or iPad 2 (obviously it required a camera), abstracting it into black and white. Then it pours colourful virtual liquids through the image. The game element comes as you have to guide and collect the flow into coloured sinks, moving your body or tilting your iDevice to do so.
There are 40 challenges to solve, with social interaction in terms of your solution images encouraged with Facebook, Twitter and email, while Game Center supports high score tables.
Reflow is out now for iPhone and iPad 2, priced $1.99, €1.59 or £1.19.
You can see how the concept works in the following video.
