Abstract: Location-based mobile gaming combines gameplay with physical activity. We have developed a game, OMopsi, based on the concept of orienteering, which can be played on mobile phones with GPS receiver and Internet connection. In order to complete a game, a player must visit a set of targets that are photos chosen from a user-generated geotagged database. Game creation, management and live tracking can be done using a web interface. The game was presented at an annual international festival which is aimed at introducing science and technology to school children and the overall feedback received from the players was positive.
