Average time spent on the Pokémon Go app is 33 minutes playing the game compared to 22 minutes on Facebook and 18 minutes on Snapchat, according to sensor tower.

This type of concept is new, but there are five other games which are also location-based and are available.

  • Ingress
    Pokémon Go was not the first app which had come up with a new concept, but it was Ingress which was released in 2012 came up with this innovative idea.
    In this game, players are divided into two agents that struggle to control over portals, which correspond to the real world much like Pokémon’s Pokéshop. The three portals give control over the area, earning them points for as long as they hold on to the area.

    Ingress shares a lot of elements with the Pokémon Go but features a more robust game. You can download it on both the platform for free.

  • CodeRunner
    CodeRunner is an attempt to fill this void with a highly creative title that utilizes base functionality in a unique fashion. Making use of the environment around the player, this augmented reality application plants users into the world of governmental espionage.

    Still, despite its quality, it may not appeal to all players from a strict convenience perspective.
    This game casts you as a government agent and sends you on a nearby mission location for you to hack and spy on your enemies. Having more players in the game will make the game much more interesting.

    This game is only available for iPhone users, and you have to pay to play this game.

  • Zombies, Run
    While Ingress and Pokemon go gives us a secondary benefit of gameplay. The Zombies, Run! Provides a mission and reward system as motivation for jogging.

    This app is very popular among the fitness game category. This game has more than 200 missions which will help the reluctant runner stay engrossed.

    This app is available on both the platforms and you can download it for free.

  • Landlord
    Landlord Real Estate Tycoons turns the whole world into a monopoly board by letting you buy and sell real venues for virtual money and can collect rent based on how many people have checked in at that location via Foursquare or Facebook. People can upgrade and trade their properties and compete with each other.

    This app is for both the devices, and you can download it for free.

  • Geocaching
    Geocaching is not a distinct product from a developer, but it is a huge community-based game. Join the world’s largest treasure hunting community with the official app for geocaching.

    Whether you are off to find your first geocache or your ten-thousandth, this app is your ultimate geocaching toolbox.
