Augmented Reality games overlay the play space on a real time view of the world. A camera usually feeds in the view and the player is tasked with playing through the environment.

These games often introduce easily identifiable tokens so the player can interact with the virtual gamespace more easily - such as EyePet on the PS3. Augmented reality games are often combined with GPS location tracking technology to enable players to progress in the game by visiting certain real world locations. Geocaching is an example of a GPS augmented reality game where players use a GPS device to locate hidden containers that have been placed anywhere in the world.
