Want £2,000? There's an app for that!

Fancy a good old fashioned treasure hunt without having to endure Anneka Rice? You're in luck.

App developer Candid Innovations claims it has buried £2,000 worth of gold sovereigns somewhere in the UK and hidden the clues within an iPhone game.

They're not revealing the name of the app yet or indeed when it'll be announced, presumably for security reasons. However, they have published a video on YouTube to whet our appetites.

For those of us old enough to remember, it's a throw back to Masquerade - the 1980's book by Kit Williams - which gave us cryptic clues eventually leading to the location of a buried golden hare.

Yet, the winner was revealed to be a fraud which didn't do Masquerade many PR favours and, again, is probably why Candid is keeping its cards very close to its chest right now.

We can't wait to check this one out - though it'll be fascinating to see how it all plays out with social media. Will users who tweet that they've solved a clue be banned from the game?

A lot has changed since the days of Masquerade - but frankly, we'll do anything to get our hands on £2,000 worth of gold!
