A company called YD Online unveiled an interesting game for the iPhone users. Called GEO Hunters, it’s a location-based role playing game (RPG) that lets users defend their neighborhood from monsters while competing against other players for top rank.
Available as a free download, it relies on Google Maps to provide a satellite-view landscape combined with a fantasy world where monsters have taken over areas around the globe. Some monsters stay put, while “hidden” monsters appear depending on what’s happening in world news. In other words, you’ll have to stay informed on the world affairs to better defend the world as monsters will popup in hot spots throughout the world. I bet these monsters are raging all over the Arab world in GEO Hunters as we speak.
You choose one of three characters – Warrior, Hunter or Magician, and as you move to different locations, you’ll battle different classes of monsters. In order to see those “hidden” monsters, you’ll have to zoom in to detect them, otherwise they’ll elude even the most experienced GEO Hunter.
Sounds cool and fun. What do you say?
