For few years, Augmented Reality (AR) games became a common interest and titles like Pokemon Go and Ingress were on hit. However, they are not as riveting as the complete virtual reality “Oasis” depicted in Ready Player One, an AR game that steps it up from regular games and brings the entertainment outside the smartphone.
Modern Android smartphones that are capable of using Google ARCore, even if they are not the most powerful devices, can use the tech to enjoy AR games. On that note, here are five Android games that you would love to try.
Ingress was among the first Android games using AR capabilities of Android phones something more than just adding a real-life background on simple games. Players can explore the real world while playing Ingress and hack portals for their teams while being in a state of war. But a regular Ingress was provided with many changes and later was renamed as Ingress Prime in 2018.
