Firefighter 360 Augmented Reality Game

Firefighter 360 is a new firefighting game specifically developed for the iPhone 3GS using a unique Augmented Reality engine.

In this life-saving fire-person shooter, you play as a firefighter, rather than gunning down enemies, you will have to douse virtual flames spreading very fast in your real environment. As you physically turn around 360 degrees with your iPhone, you have to methodically extinguish the flames you see, thanks to the camera. The fire itself isn't just a static "enemy" to be dealt with. Flames will propagate and spread if you don't put them down completely, the fire itself is capable of doing you harm if you're not careful.

Tips:

- Stay near the fire track to fill your water gauge automatically.

- At the beginning of the game, the fire is spreading slowly, this gives you the opportunity to go save some old women (touch them when you are near) and get extra points (Woman = 25 points, Fire = 10 points) for a better score. Go back to the fire track after that.

- Prevent the fire from spreading to much in your environment, do not let the fires burning out of control, this could be a very dangerous situation for you!

- Physically turn around 360 degrees with your iPhone to check out fires behind you!

I like the idea, but I'm really not digging the implementation. It needs a lot of work.

This game would prolly be very surreal to play inside your house.

Tiny grandmas and fire trucks running along your walls and all.

... And I don't play my iPhone a lot outdoors...
