Tower Defense (AR)

Defend your tower from the terrors of the forest...and Nicholas Cage! Step 1: Print your handy dandy game board! Step 2: Place your paper game board on the floor. Using your mobile camera, hover and focus on the tri-colored tower in the center of the game board. A 3D tower and landscape will appear. (Ooh la la) Step 3: Rotate your tower using the two direction arrows (left screen). Fire your nifty weapons (fire ants, cucumbers, and bee hives) using the three circular buttons (right screen). Step 4: Defend your tower!

If you want to just preview the game in a non-ideal state:
    unzip “Cloud”
    open “scene 1.unity” with the unity game engine
    from within unity, hit play
    This will run the game using your computer’s webcam from within unity
    Note: The UI is geared toward the iPad, so certain aspects may not appear as intended

To Play:
    1. Start Game (see installation instructions)
    2. Print the included “GameBoard.jpg”
    3. Place it somewhere your iPad or webcam can see
    4. After the splash screen, make sure the game board is acquired by the camera
    5. Once the game board is acquired a tower will appear and begin being attacked by waves of enemies.
    6. The Arrow buttons on the left hand side of the screen rotate the tower
    7. The three buttons on the right shoot projectiles from the corner of the tower that aligns with that color
    8. Each enemy type is only vulnerable to one kind of projectile.
    9. Compete for high scores!
    10. FUN BONUS: Play with a friend! One of you handles the right side of the screen while another handles the left!
