Google's Niantic Labs has launched Ingress upon iOS devices everywhere, now allowing iPhone and iPad users to join the global community.
In Ingress, players use geo-location technology to turn the world into a game. Locations act as Portals that can be captured and controlled by either the Enlightened or the Resistance factions. The game has already been available on Android devices for a while, having been downloaded over 4 million times, and now they can play with or against iOS players.
According to a press released, here are some Ingress milestones during the first six months of 2014:
- During Ingress live events coordinated by Niantic Labs in 2014, more than 12,300 Agents have gathered in 65 cities across the globe - from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Amsterdam, Netherlands; Auckland, New Zealand to Ishinomaki, Japan.
- More than 74,000 miles ( more than three times the circumference of Earth) have been walked, ran and biked during the 65 live events hosted around the world
- Agents around the world in 2014 have made more than 22,400,000 in-game actions (hacking) while visiting “Portals” disguised as real-world art, architecture and landmarks.
