World Exploration Becomes a Game

Created by an exclusive team at Google, Ingress is a game that gets you out of the house and into the world. This mobile app, driven by Google maps, encourages users to move through their own neighborhood or locale to play the game. The game directs players to find objects, capture territories and ally with others to complete required tasks. The Android version can be downloaded at the Google Play store, and the game will be available for iOS devices sometime this year. Learn more about it here.

Do you think the release of this game signals the beginning of a trend where more game developers seek to incorporate GPS-like systems into gameplay?


  1. My GPS plays games all the time. It's favorite one is "tell Jeff to make an illegal turn into oncoming traffic." I never win.

  2. This is an old post, I know, but I added my own location-based game to GameSprout yesterday, check it out! http://www.gamesprout.com/ideas/1110
