Above is the promotional video for Monster Cache, a virtual Geocaching game for GPS-enabled iOS and Android devices. It’s a very easy game to game to play! After downloading the free app and creating an account, you’re ready to grab your net, and start catching Monsters. The Monsters are located at millions of randomly generated Waypoints in the Continental United States and Western Europe, and, for all practical purposes, YOU are the net (your current location). You then go to the location of a Monster, position your net over it, and capture it. You can progress through different levels of play, there is a leaderboard, and you can earn badges.
Eric Barr is the creator or Monster Cache and President of Lanitek Software LLC, of Olathe, Kansas. He was nice enough to take the time for one of our question and answer type interviews, and generous enough to give away 300 Monster Coins to a lucky reader of this post. These can be used in the Monster Cache store to buy additional nets, or binoculars (more on those later). Obviously you’ll need a Monster Cache account to claim the prize, and have to reside in the U.S. or Europe. Complete rules and entry form at the bottom of this post. On with the interview!
