Description

Earthslicer is a game of capturing territory in the real world. As you move through the world, you leave a trail behind you. When this trail closes into some kind of loop, you capture that territory: a slice of mother earth becomes yours, forever.

Did you ever play the classic arcade game Qix? Earthslicer is like Qix in real life.

This game requires a GPS. When you have a solid signal, you will leave a trail behind you as you move. The trail looks like little blocks. When these blocks surround an empty space, it fills in, and you capture the whole thing. You have to move around a bit the smallest loop you can make is about 200 feet. The largest is a couple miles square.

Launching this game, you may find that some territory nearby has already been captured. That's because you're competing with the rest of the world! Your score is the sum of the territory you have sliced.

You can find more information at http://adumbration.adum.com/slicer/

This website also has a neat interactive map showing all the territory captured in the world.

:
it's fun. and you can keep track of which parts of a city you've already explored and captured. just watch out for the seedy ones, or not.

5/5 stars

Lots of fun

:
I like this idea, and this app.

Here are things it would be nice to see.

1. Only allow territory to be claimed at movement speeds of a walking or running person. Territory should not be captured at vehicle speeds. This would encourage physical exercise

2. Come up with a way to allow territory to be "captured". This app will grow stale over time if the first person to claim territory has no way to lose it to another player.

3. Somehow, allow people with devices other than the iPhone to participate.

4/5 stars

Great up until a couple weeks ago.

I adore this game. Highly addictive. I got really upset when someone was slicing nearby. Recently the app continually crashes so I can't play any more. :((
