    Default Ingress: augmented reality game

    Not really into gaming, but I admit, this one caught my fancy (was doing a review and applied for beta and got in):



    The viral marketing was done well, and my brief forays showed millions are already in the beta and playing.

    Anyone else in?

    According to the Google Play store, its requires Android 2.3 and up, so at least on that end, PlayBook is good. Now its just a matter of if it requires native Android code or not :s

    I was hoping it would work, but I suspect it is chock-full of native code.

    Someone was using Streetquest - run is a game? I find it bit similar to this ingress but much less mainstream, im using it with friends right now for like two weeks and its look grate. Lost of quest with running after rabbit or form monsters plus my personal best - street painting

    Doubt it, because of the way it is set up. I'm no sure, but I believe it has an ongoing system sync with your Google Account and it invoked Google Maps. If it does work, it would be nice.

    It still is a fun, casual, "real-life" game. There is a vibrant community around these parts; not that long ago, while stranded, i was able o get help from a nearby player who I had never met in real life. He came and helped out. Was a real blessing.

    Got Ingress to work but only as far as the account screen. Since you cannot log into Google Accounts (seems to be blocked by Blackberry?) Ingress will not work. When "add account" is selected it brings up the Blackberry Accounts screen, which isn't what the application is expecting. I think this game would work if there was a regular user/pass screen but there isn't one.

    Because its based off the android os. U can sideload it on bb but just like all the other apps odds are it's not gonna work. But to update the thread this game has gotten major updates and it's by far the best all around reality game.

    Best game by far. Kinda fell out of playing for a while, but the updates are fantastic.

    Will be good to see it open up to other platforms.

    Are you referring to the unofficial port? Folks are reporting bans, plus device had to be jailbroken (I think).

    I can't believe it hasn't been ported to iOS officially yet.

    Damn I was hoping I'd get to play with this on a 10.2.x build anyone else playing with it currently? Guessing it's just dead in the water needing google services at this point.

    That's how it's gonna stay till they decide to ever cross platform release it.
