Challenges

1. Real-Time Avatar Challenge:

Whenever a player plays the game, the movement of the avatar is decided based on the player's velocity. Managing and moving avatar as per player's velocity was indeed hard and challenging. Using functions of GPS.Lastdata.Latitude class of Unity 3D, Our developers managed this scenario quite efficiently.

2. Markerless Augmented Reality:

During development, it was quite hard to develop and implement the object in real time environment. Amalgamation of an object in player's real-world environment was one of the most challenging and hardest parts during the entire game development. However, with the help of UnityEngine. WebCamTexture class of Unity 3D, the entire scenario was handled by our developers.
