This is a real world course that has very little phone interaction, save for a virtual upload of the course and the usage of high-accuracy GPS and the use of accelerometers to record activity.

A Free run course, set up like a skate park for free runners, with Super Mario World themes. Your phone records your position, course completion time, and adds penalties if you hit any virtual Goombas along the way.

At the end of the course there is a flag pole to jump onto and raise the flag.

The advanced version features a set of blue bib overalls and red shirt, with a set of accelerometers and positional sensors and such to record your limb movement.

The next generation features a large room with some kind of Microsoft Kinect thingy that we're still experimenting with.

The trial version didn't go so well as it turns out that trying to freerun and dodge virtual Bullet Bills while trying to watch your phone screen can result in falling down a manhole or punching bricks with your head, neither of which are advised and don't usually result in collecting gold coins, unless you count the temporary stars circling around your head.
