Playing The Game
You need to turn on the app and the path you take will be recorded by your phone’s GPS. To capture a plot, you just need to run, jog or walk around it. Once you finish capturing an area, you will be shown the area that you covered in your phone.
The trick is that others can capture land from you by invading your territory. They can run around your route and your territory will be theirs. To get back your revenge, you can again run around that area. To become a successful player in this game, you need to keep your territory safe and start invading others’ areas.
The game is not about competition only. With all the jogging and running, you will be fit as well. You will be updated about your health and fitness as the app will have an API, which will show you how many steps you have walked or the distance that you have run and much more. Third party apps like RunKeeper would be able to use this data and include it effortlessly in your workout history.
