Treasure Square for iPhone Ties into FourSquare Service

No Comment 15 Views

I use FourSquare to check in and let my friends know where I can be found from time to time and I quite like the gamification aspect of the service itself. It was only a matter of time before someone made an actual game that tied into the service and that time has come. Welcome to Treasure Square.Treasure Square

The major disadvantage of the game is that it requires iOS 4.2 or higher so many of you who can’t update to that version of the operating system, can’t play the game, end of story.

Also, there’s no Android version yet and since it’s the top operating system for smartphones in the US it would make more sense to me for it to have been the first platform for the game. Nevertheless, I’m sure one is in the works.

 

TREASURE SQUARE is a new type of adventure game that lets you play on the streets of your city, using spot information registered globally in foursquare. All kinds of spots around you, from shops, cafes and parks to companies and schools can become the playing field on which your adventure unfurls. Beneath the spots lie hidden virtual dungeons, and when you pass over them, various events unfold as you seek treasures and proceed deeper within the dungeons. What was once just simple movement, to and from your company or school, this game gives it the excitement of new discoveries. We particularly recommend it to students and young business people.
