Catch The Monsters is a Universal Geolocation Game Template where you have to find monsters around your area, and if the app finds them you must get closer to them (at least 50 meters) and catch them to earn points and climb the Top 10 Leaderboard, or just share your statistics on social networks, Mail and SMS.
As the Admin of the app, you have to insert as many Monsters as you want in any location of the world into your Parse Dashboard, so users who access the app can search for Monsters around their areas, and if they are there, User can tap on a Monster and get its position on the Map. You can easily insert Monsters’ coordinates, name and points via the Parse Dashboard, everything is explained in the User Guide included in the package.
The embedded Map gives you the possibility to trace a route to get from your current position to the Monster’s one.


IMPORTANT: I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

TIP FOR TESTING AND PUBLISHING:You should create some Monster around your current area and use a real device to test this app, so you can walk or drive towards those monsters and catch them.
Please also note that once you catch a Monster, it gets removed from the Monsters class in your Parse Dashboard, otherwise other Users may catch the same Monsters you’ve catched in a specific area, so you should daily check your Dashboard to add new Monsters and keep the game alive.
It’s a big challenge that may amaze your users anywhere they are, or just in a specific Country, because you may place Monsters in a chosen Country and publish your own version of this app to that Country’s App Store only, then buy another License on this page, localize Monsters in another Country and publish a new app, and so on.
Another great thing you (Admin) can do is to use Push web console on back4app to send Push Notifications to all registered devices. For instance, let’s pretend you’ve added new Monsters in a the New York area, you can send a notifications to your users like “New Monsters got in New York City last night, catch them all!”, and keep your users wanting to play the game!

Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO php files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for sever side.
You’ve probably also read that Parse is shutting down on next year, but it’s only its hosting service that will be gone, not the Parse SDK, so that’s why we’ve hosted it on back{4}app.

We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
