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.

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.

Fun Times!


I’ve had Ingress for years, but I haven’t been a faithful player. I recently started getting back into it and it has encouraged me to get out of the house and exercise by walking to nearby portals or walking around a nearby park.

One gripe I have is that I can’t see roads on the main screen when fields are layered over each other. The opposing team loves to layer fields over the valley in which I live, and it makes it more of a pain to play. The ability to still see roads under layered fields would be great.

I’d love for Niantic to update the game so it’s optimized for iPhone X, and would update my review accordingly if they did.
