Escape from Boojums, on both your GPS-enabled device and in the real world.
Inspired by Lewis Carrol's poem, The Hunting of the Snark, Attack of the Boojums is an augmented reality (AR) action game played on both your GPS-enabled mobile device and in the real world. In it, a number of Boojums (the creatures on the map in red) are out to get you. If they invade your physical location before the game time has expired, you lose. Otherwise, you win.
NOTE: the accuracy of the game is around 3 yards (2.5 meters.) Keep this in mind when you have the map zoomed in close.
Please play responsibly, in areas of low traffic. Adult supervision is recommended.
In the menu, you can pause or stop the game, start a new one, change the screen's orientation, and modify the settings, which include the number of Boojums, their speed, the game time, and the type and zoom-level of the map. Also, you can move the map around with your finger.
This game requires Internet access and an active GPS service, and your device must be facing an open sky. It is also STRONGLY recommended that you turn off other locator services. Though this may be dependent on your particular location and your service provider. The app has been tested on Android 2.2. It may or may not work on other systems.
You may also enjoy the companion apps, Hunting the Snark and Running with the Snark, both available now.
