★★★★★ This application was developed by high school studens during the Android programming course lectured by Krejzi d.o.o. ★★★★★
The idea behind GPSFox gameplay is really simple.
You are given a target point somewhere on the Earth surface that you have to find only knowing your distance from it but not the direction in which it lays.
You can chose your target point from a number of preconfigured points or search for a random point where you decide how near or how far from you a target point can be.
Once you start searching for a point, you will be given updates on your distance from it in time intervals depending on how near or how far from target point you are.
The game finishes once you get in the proximity of 10 meters or less from a target point.
If you need help in finding target point, you can look on an integrated map, which shows your location, circle around your location where the target point might be and path you made coloured correspondingly with how optimal (green) or bad (red) your path was .
What affects the score:
The less time you took, the better.
The bigger the distance from a start to a target point, the better.
The more altitude difference you made, the better.
The more direct path from the start to the finish point you took, the better.
How it works:
GPSFox fully depends on GPS information for its gameplay, so GPS supported device is essential if you want to play the game.
GPSFox requires GPS information to calculate your distance from target point and to measure time.
While internet connection is not necessary for the basic gameplay it is required if you want to use the Map feature and it can help GPS to locate your position faster.
While GPS should work everywhere outside, it can sometimes have problems locating you, this is common especially if no internet connection is available.
In this is the case, we suggest, you enable "signal booster" in settings, which help acquiring and keeping GPS signal, but is less battery friendly.
