If you loved playing Pokemon Go, then you’ll love this new app created for NDP 2018.
Introducing NDP Jalan!, a new location-based, augmented reality (AR) mobile game!
This app is the first interactive mobile game that’s launched in conjunction with NDP.
While the name of the game is a little tacky (come on, Pokemon GO and this is NDP Jalan! Tell me you see the similarity here), I decided to download the app to try for myself.
To start off, the default avatar is actually quite well-designed. It’s cute.
You’ll get to choose your gender (of course), skin tone, 12 different colours for your clothing, and even the DESIGN on your backpack.
The designs for the backpack were all designed by students from 18 Special Education schools specially for National Day 2018!
After customising and creating your Avatar, you’ll be directed to screen which is basically a tutorial for the game.
The app will lead players on specially curated trails, with various hidden checkpoints and quests to complete at each checkpoint.
As you pass each checkpoint, the app will reveal the location of the next one.
Here’s the zinger: if you’re a Singaporean citizen or Permanent Resident and manage to complete EVERY quest in each trail, you will stand a chance to win tickets to the National Day Parade 2018!
There are 3 trails available – Arts and Culture, Nature, and NDP.
Every 5 quests completed will allow players to redeem discount vouchers for selected food and beverage and retail outlets.
Every 20 quests completed per theme will give you the chance to win NDP 2018 tickets!
The NDP Jalan! app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play store for free.
