Where can I play GPS
When choosing a place to play GPS Fishtrap, consider three factors:
No! Location data generated by the game stays on the handset. Your GPS data is never uploaded, transmitted, or shared with anyone in any way.
GPS Fishtrap (like any good game) can be cognitively engaging, so we recommend that you play in areas designed for pedestrian safety.
The folks at Glofun Labs have been designing and testing entertainment software for pedestrians since 2000. We find that humans are remarkably adept at using peripheral vision to avoid obstacles. Nonetheless, we've designed this pedestrian game to require only intermittent attention from the player - no sudden "life or death" situations, no "fast twitch" gameplay, very forgiving of mistakes. To further help the player stay tuned into the real world, the game provides audio and vibrate alerts, and its visual design allows you to play using quick glances at the screen.
Not yet. Should we? Let us know.
First, try patience. A deployed trap tends to drift a bit, so it might drift back into range.
If that doesn't work, you can hire a hand to retrieve your traps for you. (You earn this option at the Boss level.) Because the hired hand keeps half of the fish he collects, you can minimize his cost by first pulling all the traps that you can reach before sending out the hired hand.
