Pokemon GO for Windows 7/8/8.1/10/XP/Vista/MAC OS/Laptop
Even if you’re not a Pokemon fan, there’s still one thing that you have to admit and that’s the fact that new Pokemon game is an incredible phenomenon that you don’t see quite often in the gaming industry. In just a couple of days, this game became so incredibly popular that almost every person is discussing it on the social networks, also, every major portal has written articles about it.
Another fascinating thing is that this game has so much impact on players in real life, and that has good sides and bad sides. The good thing about Pokemon GO is that it makes player physically active, which is good for their health, and, also, it makes them socialize more. But, there is a bad thing too, and that’s obsession, that has led some players to serious injuries.
When we look how successful this game became in such a short amount of time, the fact that this is first Pokemon game for smartphones is pretty shocking. But, there is a reason why is Pokemon GO so good, and that’s the fact that it is developed by Niantic, one of the leading company in the field of virtual reality.
The gameplay is probably one of the most disappointing things about this game, and that’s because there’s almost none of it Pokemon GO. The core mechanics of this game’s gameplay is tapping on the Pokemon when he appears, and then swiping your finger across the screen to catch it with the Pokeball.
You will also tap on the PokeStops, special locations you can find all around the world, which help you collect items. When you catch a couple of Pokemon and reach level 5, you will be able to join gyms and fight other trainers. The whole battle process is mostly automated, so you won’t be doing almost anything.
Longtime Pokemon fans expected a lot more of gameplay, considering that some previous Pokemon game on different platforms had a complex battle system. But, even if we’re a bit disappointed, we have to keep in mind that that Pokemon game have always been about exploring the world, so we can’t be too mad.
We can only hope that future versions of this game will bring us something new and interesting.
Even though this game lacks gameplay, Niantic redeemed themselves with an awesome concept of catching Pokemon in real life.
They made this possible by using smartphone’s camera and GPS signal. Developers used GPS to give you an exact map of your town and camera makes all of these Pokemon jump right in front of you! Combine these two and you get truly incredible experience.
When you go outside to explore, rustling bits of grass will signal you if there’s a Pokemon nearby. When you get closer to the location, your Pokemon will appear. The only thing left for you to do is to grab you Pokeball and catch him.
If you’re too lazy to go outside to catch Pokemon, don’t worry, there are some chances that he will appear in your own home. But, if you want to become the very best, you need to become a bit more active.
That’s the only way you’re going to catch ’em all!
