Default [GAME] PacMap

PUBLIC BETA TEST

PacMap is a location-based game for Android phones.
To play the game you need a GPS signal and a working internet connection. There also have to be some streets nearby.
Your goal is to eat all the dots. For each dot you will get a point. But beware! Ghosts will try to catch you. Try to avoid them as long as possible.

Warning!
Don't play this game on a busy street! Don't put yourself in danger! Obey the traffic rules and regulations!

search in market for "pacmap" or use this qrcode:


sourcecode at http://sourceforge.net/projects/pacmap/

The game right now looks designed more for city driving but I think this would be an awesome idea for an exercise game for walkers/runners. If you can find a way to speed up game play for pedestrians (maybe dots are smaller or closer together?), this would be a lot of fun. The neighborhoods around where I live have a lot of cul de sacs and little side roads, which would be perfect mazes.

What about Multiplayer-Mode? Someone should be able to connet and play the ghosts, that would be really cool

Thanks for your feedback.

Yes, you have to walk.

Would be hard to implement. Also the game would become hide-and-seek.

There is a time limit and the ghost will still chase you if you leave the gaming area.


After I fixed the remaining bugs, I will try to implement a kind of "unlimited mode" for walkers/runners.

This is indeed a novel idea, and I'm sure will be quite fun for drivers, while they're being SUPER safe of course...

I just tested it out though, and it seems to keep my GPS connection active even after closing the app? I also terminated it through a task killer, and the GPS icon was still in my status bar...Understandable as it's still in beta-form, but just wanted to notify bompo and see if anyone else had experienced this.

Thanks for this great app+idea bompo!
