HALI is a location based mobile game for your GPS enabled iPhone.
Players are divided into two teams, Hiders and Seekers. Hiders must
work as a team to keep each other safe, while Seekers must coordinate to find and tag Hiders. The app provides a map, showing other players' approximate locations. Seekers are given exact locations of Hiders who are far away, but as they near the hiders they must rely on their eyes to chase and tag them. There are twice as many Hiders as Seekers. Once tagged, Hiders press the "caught" button on their phone. All players are updated that they have been caught when their icon changes to indicate their status change. Seekers must catch more than half the Hiders to win.
