You’ve probably heard about Google’s Niantic Labs Ingress game for Android that has developed a cult following with it’s location based alternate reality gameplay.

If you haven’t heard of Ingress it’s a game that encourages exploring landmarks around your location with a Cyberpunk theme.

This isn’t an exact clone of Google’s Ingress – it isn’t exactly the same visually, but is a good-looking port in its own right put together using many different open source components.

Here are a couple of images of iOS Ingress in action from the readme:

You can find iOS Ingress on Github here.

You will need to get an invite from the Ingress site to play the game.
