Ingress is an augmented-reality game that turns your iPhone screen into a map of your immediate surroundings, overlaid with a parallel world. Your mission: Head outside to hack portals, capture seeping exotic matter, and collect items to aid you in saving the world.


Great introductory training: Ingress makes your mission clear with an informative intro, explaining what your goal is and how to achieve it.

Simple yet powerful storyline: A mysterious, potentially dangerous substance -- known as Exotic Matter, or XM -- has leaked into our world through portals. You must choose between two sides: the Enlightened, who mean to evolve mankind using the matter's power, and the Resistance, who mean to kick our enemy forces' butts. Once you're on a team, you're tasked with capturing portals and XM to save our planet from imminent doom.

Calorie-burning opportunity: Ingress identifies nearby locations that house portals, so you must head from one to another to hack and claim portals and collect additional items. All this moving around is good exercise.

Single or multiplayer: You can play alone or get extra help by joining a local, national, or global alliance.


Move it or lose it: There's little to do in Ingress from the couch. If you'd rather just stay put, then this isn't the game for you.

Battery drain: You'll need your phone's GPS running to play the game. Unfortunately, this drains your battery fairly quickly. So you might consider taking a portable charger out with you when you play.

Bottom Line

Ingress for iOS is a fun, challenging augmented-reality game that brings a world of mystery, intrigue, and excitement to the world outside your door.

Developer's Description

Ingress transforms the real world into the landscape for a global game of mystery, intrigue, and competition. Our future is at stake. You must choose a side. A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us. "The Enlightened" seek to embrace the power that this energy may bestow upon us. "The Resistance" struggle to defend, and protect what's left of our humanity. Install Ingress and transform your world. The World is the Game. Move through the real world using your iOS device and the Ingress app to discover and tap sources of this mysterious energy. Acquire objects to aid in your quest, deploy tech to capture territory, and ally with other players to advance the cause of the Enlightened or the Resistance. Strategy. The struggle is being played out globally. Track the progress of players around the world, plan your next steps, and communicate with others using an Intelligence map. Form Alliances. The struggle to save the planet spans the entire world. Groups of people acting together can be more effective than individuals acting alone. Cooperation across neighborhoods, cities, and countries will be needed to achieve the ultimate victory. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
