This map contains directions to where you have to go to find the next QR-code. Once you found the code you must hit the ‘Scan’ button to continue. If you are in need of one of the previous options on the main menu, please hit the return button. Scanning the QR-code A QR-code is a two-dimensional barcode in the form of a square picture of smaller black and white squares. See the following example of a QR-code (Option ‘Uitleg’ in the main menu shows one as well): This barcode needs to be scanned in order to be allowed to continue. The spots where QR-codes are placed are specifically chosen to suit the assignment or information that will come next. See next section for further explanation about the different assignments and the information that is given. After you pressed 'Scan' in the previous section a scanner appeared on the screen. To scan the QR-code hold the camera so that the box on the screen covers the code as much as possible. When the image of the QR-code fits nearly perfectly in the square of the scanner, touch the 'Scan' button. At this point the QR-Code will be scanned. Once succeeded the application will automatically go to the assignment or information corresponding to the spot you are at. Information Occasionally a QR-code will purely give information about the area or item it is near. This way people get to know the diversity the OBA has to offer and/or gives information that might be used later on in the hunt. The Quizzes One of the assignment that this application contains is a quiz. When you scanned your QR-code, the quiz game will pop-up. The answers of the quiz will always correspond to the floor or area you are in, keep in mind the information on the screen might give you hints. After the scan you see the first question that awaits for an answer. Per question the screen is formed as followed: Question. Answer A. Answer B. Answer C. Every question has only one correct answer, so choose wisely. The more answers you have correct the more points you will get for this quiz. The mini-game Another assignment that might pop-up when you scan your QR-code is a mini-game. To keep the scavenger hunt upbeat and diverse these small mini-games are in place. The games will test your reaction speed, wit and memory. The better you complete these games the more points you will get for them. Finishing the Scavenger hunt Once you went through the entire scavenger hunt based on your performance you will have a score. This score will be presented to you and can be committed to the high score list of the OBA with your name and OBA id. After this you will return to the main menu where you can restart or exit the application.
