pARatrooper is an augmented reality (AR) reinterpretation of the famous 80s game, Paratrooper. The concept of the game is straightforward: prevent the paratroopers from landing. However, in this revised version, there's no need for a weapon: you can destroy the paratroopers with your finger, hand, head, etc. The only equipment required to play is just a webcam. Augmented reality is a technology that merges live video and virtual objects.
There's no need for any specific controller to manage the game. The player just needs a webcam, preferably with a resolution of 640x480 and operating at a minimum of 30 frames per second. Unfortunately, not all built-in webcams in laptops provide the expected quality. According to the game rules, you must destroy the spy paratroopers, non-violently, just by moving them off the screen.Features:
