A few things for the creators of the clues: 1.) It's very hard to see the sides of the buildings at night, so I would recommend people play during daylight hours for visibility reasons. 2.) At least one of the clues was outdated, since businesses tend to move or go out of business (esp. on Travessera de Gracia). Also a building had been recently painted so the clue was painted over! (We used Google maps history street view to see the older version of the building in order to figure out the "subtract top from bottom" clue).
3.) My husband's one critic was that the "scrambled" letters/"backwards" words clues were too evident, and it would be more fun to have to figure out the words through a different kind of riddle. Perhaps some sort of key you receive when you download the game?
I was pleasantly surprised at how good the game was overall and would recommend it to friends who are visiting.
But we think it is worth trying, and if you like a tricky "quiz" you will probably love it.
