AR games: What monsters live in your backyard?

News 27/07/2021

The Witcher: Monster Slayer has just become available, thus extending the number of virtual creatures we may find in our neighborhoods. Let’s see what kinds of monsters we may catch with our mobiles.


Without any doubt, Niantic’s Pokémon GO is a phenomenon and the first augmented reality game to become so popular. Millions of people all over the world have been looking for pocket monsters since 2016. The peak of the game’s popularity is long past, yet Pokémon GO still has a fairly large community. As of 2021, there are about 700 creatures you can catch. We’re more than sure that some of them are hiding somewhere near you.


Prehistoric giants became extinct more than 200 million years ago; however, you can still spot them in your area. Thanks to 2018’s Jurassic World Alive, you can catch all the well-renowned dinosaur species as well as unique hybrids. Moreover, the game supports PVP battles, where two dinosaur teams fight against each other. Despite being three years old, JWA keeps getting new content.

Fantastic beasts

Wizarding World is another renowned franchise that has its AR video game. In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, you may discover mythical creatures that apparently live in your neighborhood. Besides, you can meet friends and foes from J. K. Rowling’s famous novels as well as people who need your magical help.


Spokko’s The Witcher: Monster Slayer is the newest Pokémon Go-like game that lets us see what hides beneath our beds. As a fearless monster hunter, you’ll track down and fight frightening monsters you may know from The Witcher RPG trilogy as well as some new monstrosities. As the game progresses, you’ll buy new swords, useful items and upgrade your avatar’s skills.

There’s also something for gamers who don’t mind a little horror. Five Nights at Freddy’s: Special Delivery is the AR installment in the long-running survival horror series. The game allows you to spot malfunctioning pieces of animatronics hiding somewhere in your house. If you’re familiar with the Five Nights at Freddy’s series, then you know that a broken teddy bear can be pretty terrifying.

Monsters (other ones)

The Square Enix’s Dragon Quest series has taken on the AR technology with Dragon Quest Walk. It allows players to fight against the monsters we know from Dragon Quest games in real-life locations.

Monsters (other other ones)

If you’re not tired of looking for monsters, you may try Let’s Hunt Monsters. It’s a clone of Pokémon Go, developed by Tencent Games. The game, just like Niantic’s blockbuster, allows you to see and catch strange beasts, yet the creatures are based on Chinese mythology.
