Augmented reality games are becoming more popular as game developers continue to come up with ingenious ways to integrate games into the real world. Not to be left behind, Ketchapp has released Stack AR for iOS devices. In this game, you will be able to play a virtual stacking game using the real world as a backdrop. Expect a unique gaming experience that has the potential to be amazing, weird, and even hilarious, depending on where you decide to play. Try stacking blocks on the floor of your bedroom, on the beach, or, if you are daring enough, on your boss’s desk. The mechanics of the game is the same as Ketchapp’s original Stack game. You just need to continuously stack blocks and try to build them up as high as you can. Augmented reality may be fun but it can also add more challenge since the game requires complete focus as your tower block gets higher. Make sure you rely on our Stack AR strategy guide to help you get high scores!
1. How To Activate AR Mode
When you play the game for the first time, you might think that it looks like the regular Stack game and have trouble getting the AR function to work. In order to activate it, you must first download iOS 11. Once you have iOS 11, just go to the main menu and look for the AR button at the bottom of the screen. Tap it and it will prompt you to allow access to your camera. Give the game camera access and you will be able to play in AR mode.
2. Move Around To Change Views
Since you now have AR mode activated, you can take advantage of this feature to completely change how you play the game. Even though the goal of stacking blocks is the same, you can actually get a better vantage point in this mode by physically moving around the tower. This will help you find the perfect view for stacking the blocks correctly. Try moving closer or farther from the tower until you are satisfied.
3. Unlock More Patterns
The game gives you the option to unlock new patterns for your block tower. Most of them need to be purchased for 200 diamonds each. You can get one for free, however, by clicking on the link for the game’s Facebook page. It is meant to be a reward for liking the page but you don’t actually have to hit Like in order to get the reward.
4. Get More Diamonds, Here’s How
Diamonds are hard to come by since it is the game’s premium currency but if you have a lot of time on your hands, you will be able to get a lot of it for free. Just go to the pattern select screen and look for the button on the lower left side of the screen. Tap on it and you will be able to watch a random video advertisement. After watching the video, you will receive 20 diamonds for free. It may not seem like much but you can watch as many videos as you want so you can eventually collect the 200 that you need for a new pattern.
