Abstract

Mobile location-based games are experiences that entertain its players by requiring interactions mainly at points of interest (POIs). Navigation between POIs often involve the use of either a physical or digital map, not taking advantage of the opportunity available to engage users in activities between POIs. The present paper examines, how riddle solving as a navigational method affects enjoyability, flow, and spatial presence.
