What is the best mobile game of all? The answer is going to be varied based on preference but Pokemon Go will always be in the top 5 of the all-time best games of the 21st century for which a big credit goes to the Pokemon animated series in the 2000s.

Although Pokemon Go received mixed reactions when it was launched in 2016 mainly due to tech issues, the concept was praised by old time lovers of the series and had billions of downloads by the end of the year.


Today it has become a phenomenon that everyone raves about with the latest news being that Niantic, the game developing company of Pokemon Go, has announced that it will be launching a new app, by the name of Campfire, which will be out very soon.

Even though the project was announced in May, there are a few phases of testing and designing going on with Ingress players because Niantic wants to make sure that it immediately catches the fancy of gaming aficionados.

There will be a ‘flare’ option so as to notify other players about some interesting developments regarding the game because the main purpose of any such venture is pure entertainment.
