The craze of a game called Pokemon Go has broken the record for maximum number of downloads on the App Store. It is something about which the world has gone literally barmy.

It is like a supplement to one’s ordinary career. The game is simply so exciting and exhilarating that it has really wowed the game players into a tizzy. 

This game has become the most downloaded game in its first week of release on the App Store. Apple has ratified the record. The people back at Nintendo, the mother company which invented the game and holds the rights to the franchise, must be very proud indeed.

While this record is not backed by solid numbers, it nevertheless exists in the perceptive minds of the game players. The app was released in New Zealand and Australia first. Later on it became the latest trend in the United States and Japan. 

It doesn’t come as much of a shocker that Pokemon Go is breaking records. This was something that was inherent in the game. It is a cultural craze that has caught on and is growing in popularity like wildfire.

Since the past fortnight or so, it has become a watchword and has generated so many memes. Apple’s top trio of games has Pokemon Go as one of the honored interactive member technologies.

Other games such as Game of War, Candy Crush Saga and Facebook Messenger not to mention Snapchat have been left behind biting the dust by Pokemon Go. 

It has earned about $14 million up until now. That is a lot of money. Everyday this game rakes in a revenue of $2 million, according to TheVerge. The game is on display for playing purposes on your smartphone.

All you need to do is to download it. You thus often see people manipulating their smartphones in an endless quest to find the pocket monsters. In a matter of just two weeks, Pokemon Go has become something which is a part of the mindscape of modern existence.

The game almost has the same notoriety as certain self-promoting people on social online media. So it will be up there in the stratosphere for some time. The future looks secure enough for Pokemon Go although one cannot say anything for sure in these rapidly-changing times.
