Oh shit, I kind of now want an Android just for this game? This is so neat and really plays favours to my love of leveling up characters...
Pace Quest is an exercise game where your character gains experience and progresses through various quests by the beat of your heart. So you'd better keep your heart beat up! Your heart beat rate is determined by using the camera of your android device to detect the slight changes in the color of your finger when your heart pumps blood in your veins. Even though it is not as precise as commercial heart rate monitors, it is definately cheaper and easier to carry with you: It's already in your smart phone! Oh, and don't forget to share your character's feats in twitter. ;)
I Know What You Did Last Summer: Game world is persistent between sessions and changes from one session affect game play on the following ones.
The Truth is Out There: Some external real world element, such as weather, time of the day, etc, affects gameplay. It MUST affect gameplay and can’t be only a scenario element.
No cheating (please): The game system relies on willing player participation to enforce the rules of the game world (e.g., hold your breath, close your eyes, etc.).
Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…
Just copy the .apk file to your android device and then use any file explorer (AndroZip, ES File Explorer, etc) to launch the .apk file. You might need to enable "Install from unknown sources" option in your device's settings.
Requires Android 2.3 (API lvl 9), some devices might not support the required continous flash mode (=torchlight mode). Tested on Galaxy Nexus (Jelly Bean 4.2).
