Augmented reality remote control car simulator goes live on iOS.
When this author was six years old, he was lucky enough to receive a radio-controlled car for Christmas. The car was put through its paces with gusto, bounced and scuffed against the walls with reckless abandon. Later that same day, I crashed it into a table leg and broke it. There are two morals to this story: firstly, do not buy six-year-old children easily breakable toys, unless you wish to teach them an expensive lesson about why they can’t have nice things.
Secondly, if you want to play with a remote-control car that won’t break, head to the Apple app store and buy RC Club – AR Motorsports. RC Club allows you, using the magical power of augmented reality, to safely drive an RC car around your living room, or anywhere else you so choose. This game, which was released on January 4th, allows you to select from a number of models of car and create your own tracks and ramps which are superimposed onto your surroundings.
Designed for iPhones and iPads using iOS 11, RC Club has realistic physics and graphics, with advanced lighting and shadow effects within the augmented reality display. The game was created by Abylight Studios, an indie studio based in Barcelona. Check out their other games on the Abylight website. If your phone uses Android and you’re feeling left out, check out zombie shoot-em-up 2urvive, which we covered last month.
