It’s less a game and more a playtoy, using nifty augmented reality technology. The idea: point your iPhone or iPad camera at the real world around you, and see a little virtual Om Nom appear.
“Test your aim by flicking yummy treats into this adorable monster’s mouth, and watch him come to life in 3D animations,” explains the App Store l isting. “Toss the candy from challenging distances and try to earn all the achievements to become the best candy flicker on the leaderboard.”
You’ll need to download and print a specific image before using the app: that’s how it knows where to place Om Nom in the real-world scene. That said, you can also show the image on one device – for example an iPad – then play using an iPhone.
Anyway, we do like Om Nom, and kids tend to be thrilled by inventive augmented reality apps, so we think this will be a hit. Om Nom: Candy Flick is a free download on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
