Augmented reality gaming is still a very new thing. Ingress and Pokemon Go were two of the first AR games that were really popular on phones. A lot of games were just prototypes and things like that before then, but now they’re more interesting. It hasn’t changed a lot. If you want to see how the game works, you usually play games that are just for fun for a little while. Even so, Google’s ARCore and other people’s interest seem to be moving things forward. There were a lot of big AR releases in 2018, and this list got a lot longer after that. Also, there were some games that used AR elements in the game, and we thought that was cool too. We’ve put together a list of the best games for Android that use augmented reality!
DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition
If you want to see what AR games can do, DC: Batman Bat-Tech Edition is a good place to start. It’s a short game with ten missions, ten mini-games, and a few other things. The missions use your camera to project the game map into the real world, so you can see where you’re going. AR is used in the mini-games as well. Among the extras are eight face filters and ten sticker packs, so you can take selfies and add some extra flair to them if you want to. It’s a free game that doesn’t have any in-app purchases or ads on it. So it’s good for people who don’t have a lot of money to try out AR stuff.
In Egg, Inc, you have to click to farm. You build a farm, get resources, and improve your things. The game is very easy to play. There isn’t much to think about. Most of the game is played on your phone. However, there are a few things in the game that use AR. It runs on Google’s ARCore. It also needs to be able to use ARCore for the augmented reality. It’s still fun even without the AR.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite
Niantic has a new game called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. It’s a lot like Pokemon Go and other games that are similar. Players walk around the real world, pick up things, and fight with different people. Players work together to deal with a disaster that has hit wizards all over the world. Everybody has to help solve it. Expect to see a lot of well-known characters from the show, as well as a lot of new ones. It’s a good game, especially for people who like Harry Potter.
When Android first came out, Ingress Prime was one of the first really good games that used AR. It was made by Niantic. It got a lot of attention when it first came out. When you go outside, it works. The game tells you where some portals are, so you know where to look for them. As part of your team, you hack the portals. Then, you build them up to make it so the other team can’t do the same. When you play, you’ll have two teams to choose from, and that’s where the fun comes from. After a big change in late 2018, the game changed its name to Ingress Prime. The core parts of the game are still the same, but the app has been completely changed. You can still play the old version of the game if you search for Ingress(REDACTED) in Google Play and look for the game.
Jurassic World Alive
Jurassic World Alive is an augmented reality game like games like Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and Pokemon Go. It has the same kinds of gameplay as these other games. It’s a game where people go out and look for dinosaurs that they can buy. They can then fight other people in the game, and they can even build hybrid dinosaurs in the game’s lab mode. In the beginning, the game had some problems. It was hard to recommend because it was hard to find good things to say about the game. However, it looks like it’s found its stride. This one is also different because you can subscribe to the game instead of just buying things in the app. As long as you like it, you can decide if it’s worth the money.
Kings of Pool

Knightfall AR is a game made by A&E. This is the second game made by them. Before this one, there was a short game that was just to show how things worked. It’s a game that you play on your phone or tablet. A flat surface is where the game takes over. The controls could use some work, but this is a great way to use ARCore for games. It has flaws. However, it’s also free and there are no in-app buys.
Temple Treasure Hunt
