Directive Games showed a demo of Galaga AR on stage with Apple promising a reimagined 3D multiplayer version of the classic game. The new version of Galaga will allow multiple people to compete with each other in their living rooms using nothing more than their iPhones.
The app takes advantage of Apple’s forthcoming ARKit 2 software to let multiple phones see a Galaga arcade cabinet represented at the same spot in the real world. When everyone is ready the alien bugs break out of the cabinet and the game is on to shoot them all down.
The game demo for Galaga AR was described as the first in a series of reimagined AR arcade games from Directive Games, with the first said to arrive this year.
