‘Own This World’ Game on WP7 (Risk Meets Foursquare)

April 18, 2011 1 Comment

Own This World

In a pretty unique gaming experience, ‘Own This World’ takes the ideas behind Risk and Foursquare to create a new gaming experience. To play and control a certain area, you have to physically be there. Pretty cool idea…. It is in the marketplace right now for only .99 cents.

Game info:

Often described as “Real life meets RISK”

Battle for your own neighborhood as you nuke, blitz and propaganda your way to ruling your city, continent and even the world!

Own This World is a massively multiplayer location dependent game where the real world map has been split into millions of territories that you compete for with players that are also physically in the same area. Your rank in the world climbs as you claim territories. If you have the most you are crowned the ruler of the World.

Owning territories allows you to accumulate resources (gold, manpower, food & supplies) which in turn allows you to attack other users in your current territory.

“This is an incredible idea and is one of the few apps I’ve downloaded that changes how I go about my day to day routine. My wife loves to use it while we’re driving. She enjoys sending us on alternate (or “scenic” routes) just to take territories from people. This application has made hitting a red light or a wall of traffic a positive thing, and there aren’t many apps out there that can pull that off. There’s something about taking a territory from a friend that is simply exhilarating. The amount of backstabbing that’s gone on in my office over the day has been hilarious and there are already talks of road trips just to build up scores.”

“I had a dream about this app last night. I dreamt that I walked all the way around the great wall of China, just to gain the territory.
