Park AR app review: amp up the challenge with augmented reality

Reviews

Introduction

Driving around trying to find a place to park your vehicle is neither fun nor engaging but here's a way to take the traditional job of parking and use it to build a game. The Park AR app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is a game that allows you to virtually park a number of trucks and cars. Because the app uses augmented reality you’ll be parking these vehicles in all the spaces around you.

Create Your Own Reality

The Park AR app makes it possible to combine your actual environment with that of the game so that instead of playing on a game board you're playing on all the sites that surround you. As mentioned you will be parking trucks and cars and there are a total of 55 levels. The goal is really simple; all you have to do is drive your vehicle from where it's located and then out of the parking lot. Of course just like in real life there are always obstacles. Try to be careful as you maneuver your car, and try to keep from damaging it.

Once you purchase the app there are no in-app purchases or ads, which mean users can look forward to smooth gameplay. This app is a brand-new release and doesn't yet have a customer rating or customer comments. The first time you play the game you may want to begin by checking out the "How to Play" section that can be found in the main menu.

Playing the Game

Where the Park AR app really stands out is the fact you get complete control of each of the vehicles you see in the parking lot. All you have to do is tap on the vehicle you want to use. As mentioned you need to really be careful driving and watch out for the obstacles because if you bust up your vehicle too much you'll need to pick a new one to use. It really will feel as though you’re driving these vehicles in real life thanks to the augmented reality. To set up this game you can either use a printer or do the set-up without.

You will find the levels to be quite challenging and because there are 55 you won’t be running out of levels anytime soon. Because the app uses augmented reality it does have some rather specific device requirements that you’ll want to be sure you meet.
