If you ask anyone, they have nothing to say against the latest laser tag game. Many people are excited about this new game because they have the chance to use a fake gun knowing it is all for fun or maybe they just find the whole concept of the game amazing. The problem is that there are very few places that one can go to in order to enjoy the game. Some don’t even have an idea if there is a laser tag course in their area.
Thanks to Father.io, everyone can now play laser tag wherever they may be. You don’t have a special course to play in. It can be the park, inside your house or around the neighborhood. The goal of this new smartphone game that employs augmented reality is to make laser tag available in the modern times. All you have to do is look into the screen of your smartphone with your camera turned on. It will feature a floating arm equipped with a gun, it will show your current health and the remaining ammo you have as well as the map with the corresponding locations of the players. For the infrared blasters, you must put a little widget in front of your mobile phone and this according to Father.io is called an Inceptor. The app uses the GPS of the phone in order to determine the location of the player anywhere in the world.
There are two methods in which a player can participate, there is an option to play a typical laser tag game consisting of two teams that are already predetermined while the other option is to choose story mode wherein you have to search and interact 12 million different points of interest that are located all over the globe.
With the story mode, the players are able to visit building and establishments in the real world in order to gain more points and higher influence. This is an ideal way to experience outdoor laser tag without having the need to purchase expensive outdoor laser tag equipment.
