Pokémon GO review
Pokémon GO is an augmented reality game created by Niantic, Inc. in collaboration with Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, and Google. It was released on July 6, 2016 for Android and iOS devices. In the game, players use a mobile device to capture virtual Pokémon creatures and train them. The game is free to download and makes use of the player's smartphone camera to display their surroundings and locate nearby Pokémon. This is the first Pokémon game to use an augmented reality (AR) game.
The player is encouraged to explore the world around them to find Pokémon. The player finds and captures small, medium, and large Pokémon by throwing a ball that they have to catch with a Pokemon. After capturing the Pokemon, the player can train their Pokemon to fight against other Pokemon.
Players are encouraged to explore their surroundings while hunting for Pokémon. Pokémon GO is played by looking at the phone's screen or by using the phone's camera. One of the main features of the game is catching Pokémon. This is accomplished by throwing a Poké Ball at the Pokémon. When the Poké Ball hits the Pokémon, the Pokémon is brought into the player's collection. Players can also train the Pokémon they catch by using items called Stardust and Pokémon Candy. Pokémon GO also has a feature that allows players to find rare Pokémon.
The graphics are simple and cartoon-like with a pixelated appearance. The graphics in Pokémon GO are relatively simplistic, but still manage to maintain the same feel as the Pokémon game series. Pokémon GO's graphics are not as detailed as some games, but this is because Pokémon GO has a more mobile-based experience.
Information about replayability
The game is free to download and makes use of the player's smartphone camera to display their surroundings and locate nearby Pokémon. Players of Pokémon GO will find that the game is not as interesting after a few weeks of playing, but this is not due to the game's graphics or gameplay. Pokémon GO is based on a player's location, so as a player travels and their surroundings change, so will the game.
