AR Throw and Score (AR Foundation: ARKit, ARCore) — Unity Asset

AR Throw and Score — Unity Asset & Arcade Game Template which combines Augmented Reality and Throw Mechanics for Mobile Platforms. Toss Diligently & Try to Get the Best Score by Hitting the Target Containers without touching the Ground. AR Safety First.

During an encounter with a target, a player may throw a ball, weapon (or any object you want) by tapping any point on the screen (easy mode) or by flicking (swiping) the ball from the bottom of the screen up toward the target (hard mode). Both modes form different speed and throw direction based on the last tap point, what makes the game even more interesting.

The game uses 2 AR Engines with auto selection:

  1. AR Foundation (ARCore, ARKit) with the next features:
  2. AR Camera Lite will be used when AR Foundation is not supported by the mobile device. It’s also used when Testing in Unity Editor: the game in Editor is always run with this Engine.
