Full description

Discover Downtown Ottowa’s historic landmarks and figures while you solve clues around the city on this smartphone city game. Pass by iconic monuments such as the City Hall and Senate of Canada.

Start the game at the Algonquin Land Acknowledgement and set out to complete your mission: solve the case of a mysterious disappearance. Pass by some of Ottowa's most Instagrammable locations along the way.

Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions, so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. Solve problems and guess the answers to unlock the secret story of each location, including the story of how Ottawa became the capital of Canada.

Play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or split into smaller groups and compete against each other. You can also play on your own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end of the game. The game finishes at the Tessouat sculpture.

Interesting city exploration game to discover some historical places of the city. On the other hand, we often retrace our steps and there is still quite a distance between certain stages. I also wish there was a French version. I will still surely repeat the experience.
