MapAttack is a real-time location based game built on top of the Geoloqi Platform!

MapAttack is a game of territory capture using Geofences and smartphones. Players join the game and are automatically assigned to one of two teams. Players then run around to capture invisible coins only visible on their mobile phone screen. When a coin is captured, the coin changes color and the team gets points! We've hosted games in Portland, Oregon, at Stanford University, and in Sweden!
