Location-based games introduce an element that is missing in interactive console games: the locomotion of players and thus the physical effort characteristic of sportive activities. The authors show how to design location-based games that combine sportive locomotion with strategic reasoning by using classic board games as templates. This article is part of a special issue on interactive entertainment.
Index Terms:
game design, location-based games, state-space analysis, min-max algorithm
