Playground AR is the next step in physics sandbox, with tons of blocks, toys and more to create and destroy with no limits.
With AR placing and moving toys is easy and intuitive, you can pick them up and throw them around, freeze them in place or add joints to connect various game blocks.
You will be able to create your own machines with joints, wheels and thrusters, or play with the included RC toys.
Build your giant block castle and try to land on it with your RC helicopter.
Play with your friends and see who makes the longest domino course, the highest block tower, or just enjoy together destroying everything with bombs.
Visit your creations from any angle, take pictures of them and share with the in-game screenshot tool.
Have you ever dream about having infinite toys?
Imagine, create and enjoy.

Ratings and Reviews
Love the game, still do
I’m just editing my previous rating, I absolutely love how awesome you are as a game dev, you keep adding wonderful stuff all while listening to the people, keep up the great work.
1. Can we have the ability to scale objects, like with pinching to get smaller vice versa
2. I like the more objects and stuff, but instead of just adding more, can you add more for us to DO with those blocks. Like friction, weight, and some other weird stuff(idk)
3. Terraforming. Idk of this is possible, but, it would be awesome if the players could raise and lower the ground, build mounds or pits
4. Going off of what I just said, liquids would be awesome, water and such. And adding to number 2, then you could change the density of the objects. You could build boats.
5. Instead of having set vehicles, you could have one or two of set those, but then give us all the parts to make vehicles. Say, an engine, or a helicopter blade, and going off of number 4, boat motors.
Edit:man, I love a good dev.

Hey there Jfjkennckejndkdk (I hope that's not your real name),
Thank you for your ideas and suggestions, I really appreciate community contributions to improve games!
Liquids are already in the making, but they're not easy to implement without making your iPhone explode from overheating...
Also the selection screen for objects, it should be ready for the next update.
I wasn't really happy with the idea of scaling objects, as it would make the game pretty unstable, but as many people asked for this, I'll look into adding this feature in some way. Might be restricted to a maximum per block or something like that, I'll figure it out.
I'm working hard on adding more content and ways to play, so thank you again for your suggestions and I hope you have fun playing!
Does not work well with iPhone 7
The surface scanning area is not working well at all. I've been trying to scan the floor, dining table, coffee table, none are detected. Placing a cube next to another cube is not as easy as it seems, as any slight movement of the hand moves the cube into the cube below our the one next to it which makes the cubes fall. So unless you have a surgeon hands it will take a lot more practice than a child have. My 5 yo lost interest in less than 3 mins trying to figure out how to work this game. When I tried helping I came across similar challanges.
Instructions can be also more friendly and guide kids and other users how to be successful and use the features that on the surface seem to be fun and useful. I'm giving 4 stars because the potential is great and I want to see this app succeeding.

Thank you for your feedback.
I'm working hard on improving the user experience.
And it was cool but it was also less than I was expecting. If you have the patience and ability to place 10’s of blocks into a neat castle then that’s good for you. The problem is I don’t always want to spend the time doing that. If there was a way to share your creations and have the most popular ones show up daily that would be great (you know so I can steal other people’s designs to play on for 5 minutes and move on).
The other problem with this app is that there seems the be little developer support. As of this update it appears that this app has only been updated once. I feel that the $2 I payed for this game can only be justified by having more content delivered to me instead of an entertaining but also somehow time consuming and boring app.

Hi! Thank you for your feedback.
Right now I'm working hard on the next update which if everything goes as planned will be released this month. It will feature new blocks and ways to interact with your creations.
I'm also working on saving and sharing your creations, but it's not that simple and it will take some more time to arrive. I hope you understand.
I take my time to read every single comment and take constructive feedback so I can improve the app.
Again thank you for your feedback and your patience.
