Glowing Gloves puts iOS gamers in the ring using Augmented Reality

Bublar (BUBL MTF), a publicly listed Augmented Reality gaming studio, released the open beta version of Glowing Gloves, a new mobile boxing game for iOS available for free download on the App Store. Leveraging the motion tracking technology in Apple’s ARKit, Glowing Gloves is a first person boxing game that encourages players to get up and be more active by controlling the game with their body movements. The multiplayer game allows users to compete against others from around the world and punch, bob and weave their way to victory through a combination of motion tracking and the mobile device’s tap function.

“We’ve created a new user experience unseen in any mobile game, that allows gamers to virtually experience the highs and lows of a boxing career,” says Wictor Hattenbach, Game Studio Director at Bublar. “Practise some combos in an authentic boxing gym experience and when you’re ready, challenge your friends to a bout. Each opponent will differ, testing your skill and fitness levels.”

How to Play 

To move their boxer forward, backward or from side to side (to avoid being hit by their opponent), players physically move, triggering the game’s motion tracking functionality. To throw punches, weave with their gloves, jab, hook, uppercut or block, players tap or swipe the device’s screen in a series of different combinations. If boxers manage to land some epic combos, their gloves will start to glow.

“It’s amazing to watch two people playing in the same room, seeing each person’s movements transferred in real-time to his or her boxing avatar,” says Magnus Granqvist, Bublar’s CEO. “With Glowing Gloves, augmented reality is used to create a brand new player-vs-player experience in mobile gaming and we’re inviting everyone to experience this monumental development in immersive smartphone technology.”
