The users of the selfie camera social media app, Snapchat, can now track down digital eggs hidden among world-famous landmarks within the app's location-tracking "Snap Map" feature. The game challenges a person to search in Snap Maps to get eggs on Snapchat. Participants will compete against their friends by collecting the most eggs to top the game's leaderboard.
Swipe down on the Camera Screen to access the Snap Map.
The game appears to be similar to Pokémon Go-style games, where a user can make use of the phone's camera to physically collect items such as eggs. However, for Pokemon-Go, where people used to roam around on the streets to check if they can collect items, this game can be played from the comfort of their homes. You can also tap on any basket to start a mini-game. "Get set for an exciting egg hunt this weekend as Snapchat is launching its annual egg hunt - that can be played on the Snap Map," Snapchat said in an official statement.
