A few words from the developer

With ARDefender we wanted to create a simple yet entertaining game to showcase the Augmented Reality Technology we've spent years developing and refining.

We strongly believe in the AR potential to bring something fresh and really different in mobile gaming and we're working on a very ambitious project based on the next iteration of our AR engine.

We're using the feedback we got with ARDefender to make the user experience as smooth as possible.
