Cool. iPhone App WHAIWHAI creates guidebook games for tourists - 'play the storyline through the city'

Any city can become the setting for an adventure where you are the hero. Discover original tales and solve enigmas as you explore the city in a game scenario. Begin your personal itinerary whenever you wish and arrange it however you like. Our guides are unconventional: they are collections of jumbled short stories that become readable one at a time as you solve enigmas and send your answers via text message. Each city has a unique character. That’s why each guidebook tells a different tale, through a collection of short stories about its most fascinating places. The narrative plunges you into the city’s ambience, while the individual short stories are the keys to discovering it and learning about it. With WHAIWHAI, you’ll move away from the beaten tourist track and go where the city’s more unfamiliar spirit is hidden. You can start your experience at any time. You can play alone or in a group, in the city or even from the comfort of your own home with new sofa mode....
