[LEVELhead in action pic via the homepage]
This is perhaps one of the neatest little AR applications/games I have seen so far - beautifully simple, elegant and oh so clever. LEVELhead is a little puzzle game tightly integrated with the current AR logic, using markers on the faces of cubes which then hold little 3D rooms that can be tilted by the player to move the 'person' inside through the maze of connections. The execution is some very nice (though simple) 3D environments and the tactility of the cubes looks quite engaging. This is Augmented Reality in a digestable format, it doesnt need too much instruction and the marker constraints form part of the game - very nice.
