There have already been many such apps for cell phones and tablets. I remember one augmented reality game that relied on GPS in your smart phone along with Google Maps to turn your city into a virtual pac-man game. You could hold it up and see the big pac-man pellets hovering over the roads you have not traveled.

There was another game that turned your city into an AR-shooter that you could play with anyone who was connected. You could see where they were on the Google Map display, and once you were close enough and along a line-of-sight on the map you could tap your phone and it would virtually shoot the other player.


Like all new technology advances, it expands the field of what can be done with games. It enables new games to be written.

New games and new technology does not threaten old games. People still clone and sell games that originated from the 1970s. The fact that people can still sell (and profit from) pong clones, asteroid clones, space invaders clones, and so on show that genres don't die as the field expands.
