Locosnake: a mobile exergame to encourage walking
Do you remember the classic Snake game? Now we have turned it into a location-based exergame (LocoSnake) to encourage walking. First, Locosnake detects players' position and retrieves the satellite photograph of the area that will be used as a playing field. Then, the player controls the Snake in the game by walking in the real-world, using GPS. LocoSnake has been presented at the PERSUASIVE 2012 Conference in Sweden, and a technical paper with a detailed user evaluation of the exergame is available at this link.
