Traveler’s Quest

Traveler’s Quest, by Kitty Code, is a very interesting app that brings the virtual world into the real world – through virtual treasure hunting.  I’ve been a player of this game since about January, and can’t go a day without checking on this app.  The play of this game is quite simple:  You detect treasure using the Treasure Detector or go into the Store in the app and “buy” treasure maps for hidden treasures with Gold (the game’s currency). Then you find virtual treasures hidden throughout cities using the in-game map and GPS locations.  The closer you get to the treasure, the more bonus gold you get. The minimum distance to be able to “dig” the treasure is 1 Mile.

The cool part about the app is, you don’t only get to FIND treasure, you also get to bury it.  You get a certain amount of gold per day your buried treasure is not found, which is where most of your income will come from.  You can also buy and sell treasures in the store.  Each city has it’s own stores and own maps, and own treasure.  What is also cool is that each treasure has an original starting city. If you hide or sell a treasure far from its original city, you get more gold for it than selling or hiding it in its original city.  You can also view all of your buried treasure locations in the Maps room either in a list or a Map.

So, this app is more than just an iPhone traditional game.  This game gets you off of your duff, and into the real world to go virtual treasure hunting. It takes a little while to get used to the interface and the exact object of the game, but overall it is a VERY addictive game if it is your style.

Traveler’s Quest is available from the iTunes Appstore for $2.99.
