With the lockdown period due to Covid-19, maintaining stamina and body health is a priority. People are advised to reduce activities outside the home and work from home. Working from home is often done behind a desk, and after work people do activities to relieve boredom such as watching television, playing games, and other sedentary activities that cause them to be unhealthy. Playing games on a smartphone is becoming more popular because they are easily accessible and only require a smartphone that has many features already on it. This thesis research aims to create a game application on a smartphone to overcome this problem. This RPG game application, is hoped to increase people's interest in exercising by playing on a smartphone that detects motion using the accelerometer sensor and calculates calorie burned using the MET formula. The results of testing the game show that 40% of respondents are more interested in exercising. In addition, the calculation of calories is quite accurate compared to other tools. And it is also proven that this game can meet the recommended daily exercise.
