Torchbear, the popular social location based game for your Windows Phone, has been updated. Version 1.4 allows users to exchange with at least three of the nearest torches with no distance limitations. For those not familiar with Torchbear, you create a torch that is passed around from player to player to see who's torch travels the furthest. A torch is a message with a mission and purpose. For example, your favorite dessert is chocolate cream pie and you want to have others share what their favorite dessert is.
Other changes that come along with version 1.4 include:
- Total Distance now displayed in the player summary screen
- Players receive one point for unique torch exchanges greater than 10 miles
- Maps now autozoom to show all torch positions
- A menu option has been added to "Tell a Friend" about torchbear
You also have the customary minor bug fixes and game flow changes to improve the experience. Torchbear is a free application and does require member registration (free) to participate in the game.
You can grab your copy of Torchbear here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
