Instructions

This demo is best viewed in sitting position.

For controls, a XBox 360 game controller is the way to go. Keyboard input is also supported.

Moving/teleporting around the map :
Select the playground-screen on the tablet and click on a spot on the top down view. You will be instantly teleported to that location heading towards the center of the playground. An eye icon represents your current position in the top down view.

Add an element :
Activate your tablet and select the elements-screen. Select the element you want to add. Click on the ‘Add’ icon – the tablet will auto hide and you will see the selected element in a semi-transparent state when you look at the playground. The element can be rotated using the bumper buttons and will be positioned where you look at the playground. Place the element by pressing the ‘A – green button’. If you press the ‘A – green button’ while the element is not displayed ( when looking away from the playground ), the element is removed.

Select an existing element :
Activate your tablet and select the playground-screen. Each placed element is represented in the top down view by a circular icon. By clicking an element’s icon, the tablet is auto hidden and that specific element will be selected and re-enters the semi-transparent state. You can now move and rotate the element and re-place or remove it.
