Abstract

The purpose of this project was to find, document, and review mobile fitness games from the Android and iTunes marketplace, with a focus on those that encourage physical exercise. Using a variety of marketplaces and web searches, we, among a group of recruited and willing participants under study, played and reviewed Android and iPhone games that featured movement as an integral part of the game. We reported how effective the game is for fitness, and how engaging the content is for players. We provided reviews that can be used by: 1) Individuals seeking an enjoyable method of achieving a certain level of fitness, and 2) Game developers hoping to produce a compelling mobile fitness game of their own.
