In today’s article we are going to cover the best free AR games for mobile so that if you want to casually try out an AR game, then you will have the best experience!
If you are still unsure as to what AR stands for, then let me explain: AR means “augmented reality”. So if you remember the fever with Pokemon GO some time ago? If you played the game, then that’s pretty much what AR games are looking to embody!
AR games will “augment” the reality with various other fictional elements, such as Pokemons, zombies, games, mystical creatures and even hidden messages! It all depends on the game that you are choosing to play – and here we have put together a list of the best free AR games for mobile that you should definitely check out!
You didn’t actually expect to have a “best AR games” list without including the much famous Pokemon GO, did you?
You probably won’t need much introduction to this game, as you probably heard or even played the game (heck, it’s even been on the news!) by now, but to brief it up, you will have to roam around the city looking to complete your Pokedex with all of the Pokemon!
You can fight other players in the gyms and compete to see who is the strongest Pokemon trainer!
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite
For the fans of Harry Potter all across the world, this game should be an extremely fun and exciting adventure, which lets you become a full fledged wizard (who belongs to a house and has their very own wand).
In the game you can cast the various spells (that you are probably already familiar with from the movies or books) in order to overpower the confoundables which are trapping magical creatures, items and other wizards.
You can concoct potions, explore the various inns and greenhouses scattered all around the world (placed in real locations) and grow more and more powerful with each spell!
If you want to leave a secret message for another friend, then this is the app to do it! WallaMe will let you embed pictures, text and even hand drawings into the real life surroundings, so as long as your friends have the app, you can leave secret messages to one another!
This app is not exactly a game, but it will enable playing one – in real life! It’s a fun and interesting way to play treasure hunt scenarios in real life with your friends, and to even discover what the other people have left in various corners of the world!
If you like taking down mighty zombies in a pretty realistic way, Zombie GO is the game for you! It might feel real, but it’s real fun! In the game you will have to shoot the zombies as soon as you see them coming at you, and fast.
If you are scared easily or don’t like jump scares, then you might want to think again before giving Zombie GO a try, because this game is plain merciless. There will be zombies popping out of nowhere and if you aren’t taking them down fast, they might just run you over!

Beer Pong AR
Now this is an all time classic! The college student’s go to game available in AR, to let you experience the complete game, but without any of the mess that would otherwise come along with it in real life.
Beer Pong can be a fun party game, but it can also be a challenging and fun activity to help make your office job much more interesting (if you sneak your device under the desk and manage to land a few shots without your boss noticing). All in all, it’s a fun game which uses the environment around you to give the game an extra challenging element!

This game will feature a truly beautiful AR world filled with the latest technology and features, where you will be tasked to fight for your side (the one of your choice) and save the world!
The game is similar to Pokemon GO, in the sense that you will have to fight for domination over real life landmarks and locations with the other players, and pretty much make the world your own!
Jurassic World Alive
Now this is a game that has got me pretty excited! As an all time fan of Jurassic, I have found it super fun trying to collect all types of dinosaurs and even come up with my own creations.
This AR game will let you explore various parts of the world, collect all types of dinosaurs, battle with other players’ dino teams and even create your own hybrids in the lab. It is a very cool game which you should definitely check out, because it’s going to provide a lot of fun.
Are you familiar with the old tamagotchi pocket games? Well, if you are not, then think about a virtual pet which can be brought to life in the surrounding environment around you.
AR Dragon will let you grow your very own dragon in an AR world which can basically make it “real” (to some extent). So if you want to feed and play game with a pet dragon, then make sure you give it a try because it can be pretty fun!
Download AR Dragon from the App Store.
The Walking Dead: Our World
Now coming at you with yet another cool zombie AR game, The Walking Dead has made it to the top, first with a very cool TV show, then with more cool mobile games and PC games, and now with an extremely fun mobile AR game.
Unlike the previously mentioned Zombie GO, in The Walking Dead: Our World you will have a ton more features to explore, weapons to equip and upgrade, and even others helping you around.
I definitely suggest giving it a try, especially if you are a big time fan of the series.
This game is not released yet, but it is coming very soon! By the looks of it, and knowing how the original Minecraft game is, this appears like a very promising game.
If you thought that you were creative while on the PC version, then let me tell you this much – it’s going to be a whole new world of challenges ahead of you by bringing this huge block game to the real world.
You will be able to use your device as the infamous pickaxe and try your best at building structures which will appear in reality (well – not quite, more like in virtual reality). You can build together with like-minded friends who also have the game installed and challenge your creativity to come up with something truly unique.
