After the successful launch of the Ingress game for Android users, Google is now reaching out to the iOS platform. Ingress is a new mobile augmented reality game created by Google’s Niantic Labs where two teams (Resistance and Enlightened), battle it out to control a mysterious energy called the Exotic Matter that is virtually located in any surrounding real life locations worldwide.
iPhone and iPad users can move around the real world to look for this energy, capture territories called Portals, and initiate faction chats which lets you coordinate turf battles. Virtual skills can be boosted by visiting real locations. Alliances of users in the forms of groups from different neighborhoods, cities and even countries is possible to increase the winning chance.
