Unique project Ingress from the Google, combining elements of augmented reality, preparing to enter the platform iOS. The owners of gadgets running Android were the first to try out the original mechanics of the game, where the application appeared last fall.
And now, according to AllThingsD, Google is developing a special version of Ingress for iOS devices. The release is scheduled for 2014.
The Ingress concept is divided into two parts. The first is the direct action on the ground. The smartphone application displays a map of a real city, where objects are installed everywhere, invisible to ordinary people. The so-called "portals" are located, to a large extent, near attractions. This is where the main battle of players for control of the territory is fought. Factions try to capture and hold points, opposing competitors.
Portals form fields of control that any user can build. To do this, you need to take possession of the "keys", randomly obtained during the game, and create a connection between three points in the triangle. Practice shows that the successful completion of a task requires the ability to find previously established connections or to visit real places with your own hand.
Here lies the most important feature of the game - physical interaction with the world. Players are constantly moving around the city, visiting the same points, fighting for virtual control. In addition, Ingress continuously monitors user routes using satellite navigation and transmits information to Google servers in real time.
The second half of the game lies in the mysterious plot and investigation carried out by users. Players solve complex puzzles every day, sometimes requiring unique knowledge in the field of cryptography or modern computer technology.
Today, the project has about a million gamers. The release of the iOS version will provide a significant increase in users by the end of next year.
