Project Description

BinHunter is a mobile game that allows users to capture "bin monsters" near their location.

The app promotes awareness of bin locations in a fun way, as well as an exciting way to explore the city.

Data Story

The game uses the Hobart Council's bin data to create spawn points of wild "bin monsters" at these locations. If a user is near enough to a spawn location they can "battle" the monster to gain XP or capture it, similar to Pokemon Go.

Based on the type of bin at each location different monsters will spawn, with rarer monsters spawning at the more unique council bin types. Each type of monster has unique attack types, damage and health.
