PulzAR

Pulzar is a mind boggling, potentially Earth-shattering puzzle game that turns nearly any flat surface into an epic battle against time and a looming celestial event with the use of your AR Play cards. In mankind’s desperate last stand against certain catastrophe, it’s up to you to command a network of explosive rockets and try to blast asteroids hurtling towards Earth into a harmless meteor shower before they reach the planet. Using precision laser technology, you have only a limited time to program the guidance system using a series of reflectors, splitters, and filters that activate the nodes that will launch the rockets towards their targets.

Babel Rising

In Babel Rising, gamers play as God, preventing humans from building the tower of Babel. Gamers can use their divine powers by hurling bolts of lightning, summoning massive earthquakes or unleashing gigantic floods upon the Babylonians.
