******************************************************************
THIS IS NOT A FINISHED GAME!!
I'm posting this reluctently to show the little I managed to do.

This was supposed to be a team effort by me and 2 others.
the other two deserted the project early and left me alone :(
I WILL continue this project and make it at least playable. sorry.
******************************************************************

This is an offline-singleplayer AR (Agumented Reality) game for mobile android devices. All items/monsters are located in positions in the real world.
You can tilt/rotate your device to look around with your camera!
It requires a device with GPS and a Compass. and currently only works in horizontal screen orientation.

The download is an APK file for android.

Gameplay:
==========
Turn on your GPS and walk around. The goal is to "Take controll" over regions on the map grid.
When you enter/stay in a region you add your controll to it (green on the map), when an enemy enters/stay in it it adds the controll
of his faction to that region (red on the map). the faction with 1000 points or more that has the most controll points is the owner of that region.

Monsters will spawn as you walk, and you can fight them by tapping on them once to activate your lazer, then aiming the lazer on them. they will try to escape
so aim well! they will patrol and protect their region.
Items will spawn too, you can collect them by tapping on them when you are close enough.

The original/future plan (not implemented):
============================================
* EXP level ups.
* More factions, with developed regions to take over.
* More enemies
* Defences / Decorations you can add to your controlled regions.
* Making enemies your friends and adding them to your faction. so they can protect your regions.
* More attacks
* Items that actually have a use XD

Known bugs / problems
========================
* GPS/Compass smoothing is needed. objects vibrate wildly on screen because the sensors are not percise.
* Too many objects spawn, this is just for testing.
* Save file gets large too fast.
* Audio issues.

Very cool game but on my Nexus 5X the video from the camera is upside down while the hud is rightside up.

Oh, it's for Android...I might be able to give it a whirl at some point, but: you should probably change the link description from "Windows" so it's filtered properly in the listing...
