Bridge the gap between games and the real world, with two new augmented reality titles from eZone! Watch as a prehistoric putting arena rises from the ground in Mammoth Mini Golf AR, or put your aiming skills to the test in Beer Pong AR; either way you can grab your friends for a quick game anywhere, anytime.

Mammoth Mini Golf AR

The magic of augmented reality with Apple’s ARKit brings a wacky caveman themed world of mini golf right into your home! Place the course anywhere you like, grab your friends and let the fun begin! Move around to get the best angle, set direction and power and putt for glory! But watch out for the crazy cast of characters trying to stop your ball from reaching it’s home: mammoths, dino-birds, cavemen and volcanos, just to name a few!

Tee off on iPhone by grabbing Mammoth Mini Golf on iTunes. To get an idea of the primordial perils that are par for the course, check out the preview video below or over on youtube.
