If you are a lover of Pokemon, you will love this one. Walkabots merges reality and corporate with the fantasy world via your smartphone. The aim of the Game is to Explore, Collect and Battle.

Mobile gaming is a $55 Billion Dollar Industry, and this particular game uses the real world environments and weather to influence the types of Walkabots thatyou will find on a given day. You are then also able to battle random people that you run into on the street.

The app collects the Walkabots in a way that means you don’t need to always be playing the game, if you walk past an area where a creature is, you will be prompted about it being there via a message on your phone.

In terms of revenue, they will be going for a freemium model with in app purchasing, as well as merchandise and corporate sponsored Walkabots.
