The folks at IGN have put together a list of some of the most shameless Pokémon GO ripoffs so far, from Garfield GO to the recently-revealed Jurassic World Alive. Read on below to learn more about them:
Jurassic World Alive
Like Pokemon Go, Jurassic World Alive will have players finding dinosaurs in the real world (with some unique to specific locations) and will allow you to view them using augmented reality.
Unlike Pokemon Go, Jurassic World Alive will let players face off against each other using their dinosaurs. (While PVP battles were shown off in Pokemon Go’s initial trailer, they haven’t actually been implemented yet).
Garfield Go doesn’t even try to pretend it’s anything more than a copycat, putting it right in the name and even advertising on its official site that it’s for players who “enjoy geocaching or playing other location-based games, like Pokemon Go, Seek or Munzee.”
Unlike Garfield’s lasagna adventures, Ghostbusters World leverages Google’s ARCore technology, potentially making it the only viable competition on this list for Pokemon Go’s enhanced AR Plus mode, which uses Apple’s ARKit framework.
Draconius Go is by far the most shameless rip off of Pokemon Go to date, with clear copies for everything from egg hatching to Pokestops to candies and even the actual monster catching itself. Seriously, look at it. It’s Pokemon Go with weird little fantasy monsters.
Plus, like Jurassic World Alive, Draconius Go does offer PVP battles (which, again, still aren’t available in Pokemon Go), and also has some other notable additions like quests and a magic system. Like Garfield Go, it also features treasures hidden throughout the world map.
