A Google Maps Game for the iPhone

1000: Find 'Em All

Glu Mobile have just launched a new iPhone game that includes a fun Google Maps based level. The Google Maps part of the game involves finding items that are scattered around the map using your current location.

The items are displayed on the map and you have to travel to the marker locations in the real world to collect them.

The game also uses your current location to help you find 'gifts' in your vicinity. Gifters are generated from registered Wi-Fi hotspots near your location. Glu Mobile says you can use this feature to 'find a slice of moon cheese at your local coffee shop, or discover a bucking bronco in the library.'

The 'Gifters' part of the game sounds like Glu Mobile may have plans to develop more Foursquare type features for the game in the future. The game already features badges that can be earned as you play the game.
