VuHunt

Vufind, Inc.
VuHunt: A Real-life Risk Board game on top of the world with actual deals.


VuHunt is a fun real-life strategy game that lets you build an empire on top of the real-world, explore and checkin at places you like, follow friends you love, share interests and activities in a cool visual way.

Your goal is to build the coolest vast empire, earn the highest honor titles such as Emperor of the US, Prince of Paris, or Duke of Madrid, all while collecting wealth and earning great real-life deals. The honor titles are based on the number of castles you have conquered in a particular city, state or country.

To start building your empire, first you need to choose your home base, which could be the town you live in, or a town you visit frequently. This home base affects your travel cost if you try to conquer remote castles. You can have colonies far way, but the first castle you conquer will have a steep travel cost. A neat idea is to purchase a Unicorn to help you travel cheaply.

* Conquer castles
---------------
To conquer a castle, you simply keep zooming into the map until you see the castle level. You tap the castle, and you have to do the challenge. There are 5 types of challenges. Photo or video upload with a specific object, landmark, or scene. Checkin., or Text or Image Quiz. You are rewarded with VuHunt $ for each castle you conquer. Each Castle has revenue (the longer you own the castle, the more VuHunt $ you accumulate) and an upkeep cost. Note that castles at premium locations such as the golden gate bridge, the Eiffel tower or the pyramids all have high revenue, but also high upkeep.
If you are a wealthy player, you can use a dynamite to blow up the castle without doing the challenge!

* Protect your Empire
-----------------
Once you conquered a castle you can replace the challenge with a higher difficulty challenge to make it harder for enemies to take it away from you. At higher levels, when you have enough wealth to have guard battalions, you can add another tower to protect the castle with 2 challenges. You are rewarded with VuHunt $ for each castle you conquer and accumulate more the longer you own each castle.

* Add your favorite places to the VuHunt world
---------------------------------------
You can contribute a castle at your favorite locations by clicking the add castle button. You choose the location, and the challenge. You get to have your name credited as the builder of the castle forever! You are rewarded with VuHunt $ for each castle you build!

* Photo sharing within the castles
----------------------------
You can also contribute photos, stories and jewels into any castle without having to conquer it. This is an awesome way to network and share with local people at places you are interested in and perhaps plan to visit in the near future.

* Compete against friends, or team up
--------------------------------
You can follow other players, browse their photo and video uploads and checkins. You can also challenge them to 1:1 battles at your favorite neighborhood.

* Real-life interest-based local deals
------------------------------
VuHunt is a fun strategy game that offers you real-life rewards and deals that you can use in your daily life.

We hope you enjoy this beautiful world. Conquer away!
