I am developing a game that uses OpenStreetMap data.
The game is now in a puplic beta state. [edit: The game is now oficially released for Android and iOS]
Everybody who is interested and has an android [edit: or iOS] device can download and test the game.
I think I did all the legalities right to use the OSM data, but I would be very happy if somebody could confirm this.
If this game gets more attention it will also drive more attention to OSM, I think.
The player can play where he is in this moment and if he finds some errors in the map he maybe will fix it.
I did not make the game dependend of special map features or types of roads, to avoid people mapping wrong just for success in the game.
I would be happy to hear what you people think about the idea, the game and if I have to change something to stay legal.
You can even create a wiki page for your software itself. If so, have a look at the wiki pages about other software or apps … there is a wiki template that you can use to show a software information box on each software page, and it makes your app appear at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Android
Wow, thanks a lot!
I am working on an update right now that will include a todo list (raodmap) into the game, where you can read what will be the next steps and how I want the game to be in future.
I will update this post when I updated the game, what will propably be tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
I updated the game in the playstore with an easter special!
The new update brings new missions, new sidemissions, one new skill and a new feature to the game.
With this new missions the game has now a real end and the survival mode is also more challenging and fun.
The easter special includes the new feature “presents” for free (until 24.4.2014)
This means that you get EVERY new stage a present that you can collect and you will get up to 40 water, 40 paints, 40 seconds or 4 lifes!
New update in the playstore!
-small beauty fixes
-Changed the sidemission description of sidemission 3
-Some language corrections
-The advertisment comes now later and less frequently
-Bugfix of a Bug that occured in high stages sometimes
-Some more little bugfixes
full release notes can be found ingame, go give it a try!
Just passed by to tell you about the latest (mega) update of the game.
Now it is possible to upload your current position and share it with your friends. Every uploaded map has its own leaderboard and it is thus possible to figure who is the best in your neighborhood!
I could also increase the performance und switched from 30 to 60 fps, what made the hole game super fluid.
Some bugs were fixed and some new features were included and now its time for me to move on to iOS…
Give it a try, download it and play your neighborhood, upload it and share it with #beatMyMap or #BucketManGame and defeat your crown
