BoP (Buy or Play)

BoP is a game system designed to encourage the knowledge of the archaeological heritage about each tourist destination of VirTimePlace.
Its name comes from the English expression "Buy or Play".
Each test is linked to one of the extras that are currently being selling in the app (details, reserved spaces, audio guides, historical scenes, etc.).
You can buy it or win it by playing.
Yes, also at home, you can learn where the main buildings were, how to reach them and test your knowledge.
  • VirTimePlace will place a target (usually a rotating cube) in the scene, and your avatar at a distant point.
  • You must navigate, without flying, through the virtual world to reach the target and press it, before the time runs out.
  • After the push, a test window is shown (currently, a questionnaire with 1 or more questions).
  • If you get over it, you will have 24 hours to do your free download.
  • If fail, you can try again from another point, as many times as you want. Don't worry, it's just a game and you're learning details of an ancient city that you might visit some day.

It is optional and only available at the destination. It will be great for you to understand that monument near from you.

  • VirTimePlace places a target (usually a rotating cube) in the virtual scene, and uses the GPS mode to detect your current position.
  • You must move physically until you reach the target, where the system will allow you to use the manual control to get closer and press the target.
  • There is no time limit. Take the road to enjoy the best prize, the ride itself.
  • If you have the flight function, you can use it to have a bird's-eye view of your walk over the old city, but if you want to save battery, you can turn it off until you reach the target.
  • If you get over it, you will have 24 hours to do your free download.
  • If fail, there is a delay of X minutes until the next activation of a new questionnaire.
    Warning! each error, increases the delay. Enjoy the scenery and try to make sure that your next answer is correct.
  • Buying helps to improve VirTimePlace and make the extra yours permanently. That is, you can delete it and re-download it as many times as you need.
  • Play is more fun, and the prize is yours until you delete it. But if you erase it, you'll have to earn it again.
  • The purpose of BoP is to stimulate the knowledge of the archaeological heritage and, at the same time, to provide an easy way for adult people who want to support the project.
  • Whether you've completed the game and downloaded the extra, or if you bought it, to play again, you just need to delete it, and it is a normal practice within the app.
  • VirTimePlace can be stored on the SD card, using only about 20 MB of internal memory.
We are working to add BoP content to all destinations, but our capacity is limited and in some destinations, it will take a while.
Return once in a while to your destination VirTimePlace, they will be there soon.
