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.

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.

Where Will Ingress Take you Today?


The game requires 3 essential resources for you to enjoy the experience: Time, Travel (gas), and Teamwork. The game experience will have to interact with “Portals” established by the Niantic Virtual Reality programmers that are socially interesting sites to visit (e.g., monuments, historical places, parks, popular restaurants, etc). While the game play itself may seem silly at first, it’s no different than any other strategy game going back to Chess. Simple game play is possible by yourself, or very complicated as you work to place an imaginary field (or is it?) over 3 nearby Cities or States. Team play will require the use of communication tools such as Hangouts, Slack, GroupMe, Zello, and/or Telegram. Join the Resistance and fight the use of Alien Technology release through CERN into the virtual simulation. Then, make some long-lasting friends along the way. You decide the true game experience. As far as the “cheating” in the game, it’s no different than any other computer platform dating back to Sir-Tech’s Wizardry on the Apple II+ system back in 1984. Join, have fun, and choose the game play that suits your personality.

Don't turn off my music


This app can have an actual score* when it stops turning off my music every time it loads. You boners figured out how to get my phone to make and detect exotic matter fields but you can't put an app on the Store that plays nice with my darn music player? Grow up. Even the grossly inferior Pokémon sequel doesn't give me this absurd grief.

UPDATE: Even with the new version, you didn't fix the only problem I can think of right now. FIX IT NOW. STOP NOT FIXING IT. I read other reviews and other people also don't like this dumb thing you're leaving in the app for no reason. Or at least let the app not reset every time I navigate away from it so the music only has to cut out if I'm unfortunate to let my battery drain all the way. DO THIS BEFORE YOU GO HOME TONIGHT.

*The score might be good! You guys should probably find out!

Customer Service is bad

Psycho Waffle

This company doesn't care about its playerbase nor what's wrong with their games. Don't get me wrong, this game is great, and is more refined and original compared to Pokemon GO, but this company repeats its mistakes and doesn't have a way for players to touch base with them to recognize any problems the players are facing with the game. They also ignore more than 80% of invalid portals that don't exist anymore or changed. They also can't tell the difference between who is cheating and who isn't. Until this company gets their **** together, don't bother with this game. You should check how the customer service is for a game before you stick to it.

Edit: I won't come back to this game until Niantic gets their $h!7 together.
