Fun Run – Gamified Fitness App for Android

This is an Android app which uses the gamification approach to motivate users to go for a run. Based on the arcade game “Tron” two players are competing with each other by boxing the opponent in. Instead of futuristic motorbikes or cars as in the original game, the player must run to create a wall. If one player touches the wall the other player wins. The aim of the game is to let the opponent walk against their or your wall. The walked distance from you is then your score which will be added to your global scoreboard.
The App has been planned and prototyped in Adobe Experience Design. The Backend is written in Node.Js and connects to  ArangoDB. To reduce the load on mobile phones the trajectory calculations are taken on the server-side.
