PulzAR, a new downloadable augmented reality game for PlayStation Vita, is now available to buy from the PlayStation Store, Sony has announced.

Earth is in grave danger, somewhere just beyond our planet's outer atmosphere five giant asteroids are heading on a deadly collision course with the planet. It's up to the player to command a network of laser powered rockets to try and blast the asteroids before they hit the Earth.

The first AR Play Card placed is used as the Arena card and draws the level out, then the puzzles use up to five AR Play Cards to place the three types of objects in the game; Reflectors, Splitters and Colour Filters.

Moving the PS Vita around the play area will let you visualise the world in true 3D, you may see a solution you previously hadn't thought of.

PulzAR is priced £1.59, and those who require AR Play Cards can download them here.

PulzAR is the first of many more AR Play titles set for release this year.

I enjoy the concept of the AR cards and what they are. I've always liked the idea of bringing the game out of the system, but right now they are more of a gimmick then a game tool.
It would be great to see games use them like a new iteration of Monster Rancher, using a combination of the cards like puzzle pieces, or to display the monsters on the table. Anything that helps bring the games to life.

Work in progress, but worth waiting to see what they do with them.

The AR cards kinda defeat the object of a handheld, the good thing about handhelds is you can sit how you like and where you like (train, park, plane or lying in bed etc) but the AR games restrict all that. I suppose they may appeal more to the younger lot who play at home mostly.

I failed to get the table football game to work on the Vita... I'm not a fan of AR games at all.

No, I don't play them at all. Not only are they awkward, but what kind of twat will I look sat on a train with my cards laid out all over the table and leaning into the person next to me while trying to get the right angle?!

Am I the only one who finds AR games awkward?

Actually looks like an interesting twist on a tried and tested formula. Might try it.
