However, it's not the only new game worth of your attention: take a look at all the great new Android and iPhone games from the past week right below.
Genre: Augmented Reality
Pokemon Go is growing in popularity at a break-neck speed. A game developed by Niantic, the same company that made the popular augmented reality game Ingress, Pokemon Go allows you to capture Pokemon, battle them, have them evolve, and trade them.

Pokemon will appear on your smartphone screen, and wild Pokemon will be found in areas that correspond to the type of Pokemon that they are. For example, water-type Pokemon will be found by lakes and oceans. PokeShops, where you buy Poke Balls and other necessary equipment, will be found in museums, and near historical locations.
