Thoughts for this update:
It took me a while to figure out how to do animations, sound effects, and camera linear interpolation effect, but those small details made a big difference to making the gameplay feel smoother. I also thought the "shake phone for points" idea was fun (inspired by the shake weight); I track the device orientation and when phone is tilted a certain amount, it triggers a point to be awarded.
I was also going to just use a google map screenshot, but found a nice tutorial on exporting 3d maps; I'm starting to like the idea of the city being 3d (used the free version; might upgrade to paid tool in future to make the city look more realistic with colors indicating parks/river/etc).
