Play With Puppies and Dolls in AR on iOS

 

Anya is a unique app. She is a doll that a child can bring into their life and interact with, tickle and dress her and her puppies. She can pet the puppies and play games with them too. With Apple’s ARKit, Anya and her puppies come to life in the real world. Anya and her puppies can be in a doll house, on a coffee table in the living room, on the kitchen table, or anywhere a child would like to play with them.

 

Anya is a cute little girl who dances, sings and plays interactive games like twirling a hula hoop, pop the bubbles and maracas. She repeats what you say. You can even dress her up and tickle her, she makes funny faces too! The puppies do everything a cute puppy does, fetch, sit, roll and dance!

 

This app uses the accelerometer creatively; a user can make Anya twirl the hoop if the he/she moves the phone in circles, stop and she drops the hoop. This app is loaded with interactive play, she blows the bubbles and the user can pop them with a tap or pop multiple bubble with simultaneous taps, tap her feet and she will dance, tap her nose and she makes a funny face and more. She is quite emotional too, just like all little girls! Making her definitely a fun-to-play-with app.

 

“Anya Dress Up & Pet Puppies AR is loved by millions of kids worldwide. And now with Augmented Reality, we bring them to life in the real world. This opens a new frontier for us to explore, and we are very excite for what the future holds,” explained Nikita Kapoor, Founder at Sprite Labs. “This is a Universal app, so it will work great both on the iPhone and iPad.”

For those seeking a casual experience, the game features a simple touch-based control scheme requiring players to follow on-screen prompts.

Bumble Bom Bee is the Future of Match Gaming on iOS

Conchware today has announced the release of Bumble Bom Bee 0.0.515, a maintenance update to their popular game title for iOS and Android devices.

Bumble Bom Bee, the world’s first physics-based tile matching game is one of the most challenging and intuitively fascinating puzzle games to be introduced in recent times.

 

By taking the basic gaming principle of swipe-to-match we have moved into a new realm of possibility in which mechanics that consistently generate results in the inherently unpredictable world of physics and mathematics are now a reality.

 

Through extensive study of geometry and bees we have discovered a way to spontaneously generate order out of the inherently random movements of multiple objects, allowing for gameplay experiences which have never been possible or seen before now. The dynamics and flexibility of such a system allows for a player to do anything they please and although you might not know where the tiles are going, when they stop you are always presented with a perfect honeycomb.

 

In addition to everything mentioned so far Bumble Bom Bee also makes extensive use of multiple game modes, obstacles and objective that combine into many different combinations of levels and of a specially designed A.I. created to help the player throughout their game play experience. This A.I. does everything from show the player how different obstacles work in the tutorials, teaching beginner players how to play the game without the limitations of language barriers, to offering valuable hints and suggestions when the player cannot find a move and automatically shuffling the board if no moves are possible. As a result Bumble Bom Bee is a game that, while instantly familiar to millions, is unlike any other game on earth.

 

Bumble Bom Bee 0.0.515 is currently available for Free at iTunes App Store in the Games category. Bumble Bom Bee is also available in Android for Free at Google Play Store in the Casual category.

Review: Spectra – Camera Painting for iOS: Complete Paintings Using the World Around You

If you’re like me, you enjoy casual puzzlers. However, they all seem to run together after a while. Wouldn’t it be great to be faced with a new challenge? Enter Spectra – Camera Painting for iOS. This puzzler challenges users to complete on-screen paintings by using their iOS device’s camera to capture colors from the world around them.

Overview

Spectra offers an unusual twist on puzzle/color matching games. Users are presented with an unfinished work of art, and are challenged to help complete the image by pointing their device’s camera at various real-life objects to complete a selected color. Beginner images begin with matching four colors, while later images require quite a few more colors to be found and matched.

Review: Spectra – Camera Painting for iOS: Complete Paintings Using the World Around You

The game sounds simple, but players will quickly find the game to be an interesting challenge, especially in later rounds. I quickly discovered that matching colors isn’t an exact science, and I found my self finding objects that I thought were an exact match, but required a bit different lighting to match the required color.

 

I got some funny looks from friends and family members while playing the game, but when I explained it, they asked for me to send them a link so they could try the game! Then we were all pointing our iPhones at various objects in the room, (sometimes even each other), trying to complete the coloring in our images.

 

Early levels make it pretty easy to match the colors, but once you’re on the expert level, you’ll find it a devilish challenge to make just the right match. The three levels of challenge are Novice, Expert, and Master. (I never did quite reach the Master level. But, I’m still trying!)

 

The game also makes use of the iPhone’s built-in flashlight to allow capturing colors in dark environments, like dark corners, or even behind furniture. (The brighter light offered by the flashlight can also help you create various shades of colors to match just the right hue in later levels. Make use of the “pinch-to-zoom” feature too, which helps you find just the right color hidden in other objects.)

 

The app is free, and offers 8 paintings to get you started. That, may not sound like a lot, but the three skill levels for each painting will definitely keep you challenged for a while. And when you do run out, you’ll find a large number of additional painting packs, all available via coins, which purchased in-app for $0.99 to $3.99. (You also earn coins by completing each painting.)

 

Additional Painting Packs include:

* Abstract
* Art Nouveau
* Cakes
* Cartoons
* Cubist
* Folk Art
* Futurism
* Graffiti
* Impressionist
* Natural World
* People
* Pets
* Pointillist
* Pop Art
* Sport
* Surrealist
* Transport
* Travel Art
* Wildlife

 

Verdict

Honestly, I have been playing this game for quite awhile before I was ever asked to do this review. I have to say it’s the type of game I wasn’t sure I would like, but has proved to be a winner. I won’t say I play it every day, but it is certainly a great game to play while you’re in the waiting room at the doctors office, or while waiting for an oil change to be completed. (Just be prepared for a few odd looks!)

 

I highly recommend Spectra – Camera Painting to anyone who is looking for an offbeat puzzle challenge that really is unlike anything they may have played before. And, for the rock-bottom cost of “free,” it doesn’t cost a dime to try it out.

 

Rating: 4.0/5.0
