Hunting the Snark - Inspired by Lewis Carrol's poem, The Hunting of the Snark, Hunting the Snark is an action game played on both your GPS-enabled Android device and in the real world. In it, you hunt a Snark (the creature on the map in blue.) If you invade its physical location before the game time has expired, you win. Otherwise, you lose. Also, at random intervals the Snark becomes a Boojum. Your device will vibrate and the creature will turn red, and it will then attack you until a random interval expires, at which time it will become a Snark again. If, as a Boojum, it invades your physical space, you lose.
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 Snark's speed, the game time, whether the Snark must remain within the region of the map, 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.
