Available now for Series 60 Symbian 5th edition smartphones, AR!

Pirates is Optricks Media's first augmented reality game for mobile platforms. It's a fun and innovative first-person shooter that pits you against fleets of approaching pirate galleons that fire at you from all angles as they sail towards the island where the Captain's treasure is hidden. Don't let them land or they'll drop anchor and steal his treasure!

Use your phone’s camera and screen to shoot and sink the virtual galleons that appear integrated in the real world via Augmented Reality. You'll gather treasure and power ups when you sink a pirate ship and as you progress, more and more pirate ships will try to plunder the Captain's treasure.

AR! Pirates uses an innovative 3 coin marker system that provides a stable and immersive gaming experience.

Play AR! Pirates at any scale! Use larger markers such as flying discs or paper plates. You can play with small ships on your desk using 3 coins or play with almost life sized ships in the park. But watch out as the larger your markers are, the more active you have to be when playing the game!

A trail version of AR pirates is available from http://www.arpirates.com (full version£0.99)

Coming soon for iPhone too!
