Soccer Head by @wowfilterscom

Juggling an AR football with your head is no less tricky than balancing one in real life, and Soccer Head is proof! But worry not, you can hone your skills - with Practice mode - and  keep track of your performance - with Standard / Standard (Colour) mode - before you show off and film yourself with Simulation mode! Remember to turn your volume on before the game starts so you can hear the countdown and know when the game starts.

Motogame by @sangexd

If you’re adventurous but not brave enough to drive a real motorbike, play Motogame! Running at a relatively high speed, the virtual motorbike can be difficult to handle with head moves  - especially when you have to avoid crashing into all the road obstacles and cars.

Help Donkey King collect all the fruit he needs! This colourful, head motion tracking Catch the Fruit Game can be tricky though, as the size of the basket is quite small.
