The runway success of Pokémon Go has got me thinking about other franchises that would make excellent Pokémon Go clones. As a result of the app’s popularity it seems like augmented reality games are here to stay, so here are the ones that need to come next.
- Ghostbusters: I imagine the Ghostbusters AR game working just like Pokémon Go. Of course, ghosts will pop up all around players. The goal will be to catch these ghosts, which in turn will gain players EP. On the other hand, it will be cool if you can choose to be a ghost or a Ghostbuster. Furthermore, players who choose to be on the ghost team will try to haunt real life locations just like how players in Pokémon Go try to take over gyms. As a result, the players on the Ghostbuster team will try to battle the ghosts in said location to make it ghost free.
- Walking Dead or Similar Zombie Franchise: With this AR game zombies will appeare in front of players. The concept is simple; players will use the controls on their phones to attack zombies. Basically, the goal of this game is to get a high score with different types of attacks gaining players a range of points.
- Simpsons Go- Homer has destroyed the town again, so it is up to you to rebuild it. In order to do so, players must find characters and buildings in real life locations. Once, players have enough pieces of the town they will be to see their recreated Springfield though their phones.
- DC Heroes vs Villains- With this concept players choose to be a hero or a villain. This AR game will feature many fighting game styles incorporated in it. Players can take over real locations for good or evil. Once a player defeats that location’s current “Boss” they will gain that title. On top of that, if you are a hero Vilians will randomly challenge you.
If you didn’t see a Pokémon Go clone that you want leave a comment and let me know. Also, how would you add to these ideas.
