HoloVista is a vaporware-style hidden object game that uses augmented reality


Fun game for iOS (or as fun as a game about depression can be). It's basically a hidden object game--find the listed objects in various rooms of a haunted house as the plot and rooms become increasingly chaotic. The clever twist is it uses augmented reality-like controls. Instead of spotting objects in a 2D image, you move your phone around to simulate looking through the camera. In between rooms, you further the plot by participating in Instagram-style image uploads and faux text exchanges.
