Game Review : Google Ingress

  1. Android Only Game
  2. Uses GIS or Google Maps API/ for geo-caching game
  3. Healthy for you- makes players walk from portals to another. You have to be within 40 m of a portal to recharge,capture of attack it.  Makes you really walk a lot.
  4. Addictive and Immersive with impressive follow up media story.
  5. Can be used as base template for other games , and social experimentation
  6. Uses Points, Badges, Leaderboard of gamification
  7. Encourages direct face to face social interaction
  8. Has in game chat facility
  9. Zero in game currency . So no coiners or cheaters here
