This augmented reality game turns an iPhone into a laser gun.

The game, which was hacked together by the VR studio Emergent, combines the AR of a Microsoft HoloLens with the motion tracking of an iPhone to create a world-bending gaming experience. Players are equipped with virtual gear, and every shot renders a bullet hole in the surrounding environment.

The game uses Apple’s ARKit app, which allows developers to upload and test AR creations.

While this first-person shooter is one of many for iPhone, it’s probably the only one that’s most similar to laser tag.
