Warp Runner – Gaming Using The Real World

Warp Runner

Warp Runner is a different kind of puzzle game using your device rear video camera to play. The character is trapped in the real world and we must help him escape by warping reality through a series of puzzles. The game uses Qualcomm’s Vuforia 2.0 Augmented Reality Platform along with Unity 3D. The game starts by locking the scene to the video displayed in front of you such as a table top or magazine. The game then uses this as a reference scene and overlays the game elements on top. We can then manipulate the game with simple touches and most importantly warp the real world surface up or down to aid the characters escape.

Warp Runner

There are sixteen puzzles to solve with increasing difficulty. Touches are uses to warp up and down the real world to create a path for the character collect items and to reach freedom. The only problem I found was that I didn’t have anything interesting to hand to start, blank surfaces don’t work well such as the floor. Also it becomes tiring holding the device at the real world angle – don’t use the wall! Make sure you pick a comfortable playing angle to start. I’d recommend placing a magazine on the floor.
