Follow JC Go is one of the most random Pokemon Go clones that you’ll find anywhere on the mobile internet. This game, which was officially commissioned by the Vatican and Fundación Ramón Pané, has you collecting Catholic saints, feeding yourself, and tracking your prayers. You can even use the local map function to find nearby places, and you can donate to charities, as well. Read on for some tips and tricks for Follow JC Go!
Currently, the game is not available in English, and if you download and play the game in the USA, you’ll get the Spanish version, so if you speak no Spanish, it’s going to be a bit of a transition. The best way to combat this is by having Google Translate by your side so that you can figure out what things are on the fly. Nearby place names will be in the language that they’re actually named in, so if they are in English, they will appear in English in the game.
One thing that makes this different than Pokémon Go is that you have to manage your hunger, thirst, and spiritual hunger. To earn these you ahem to walk, bike, or scooter to where you need to go in order to get there. This is also how you get to the various saints, Mary appearances, and other tokens that you see on the map.
Tap on the church icon in the lower left corner of the screen and you will be able to hunt down far more than just churches. You can find churches, but you’ll also be able to find restaurants and other food joints (Comidas y Bebidas), tourist places (Lugares), fun places (Diversion), doctors and hospitals (Salud), transportation stations (Transporte), gas stations and liquor stores (Services), hotels (Cargendo), stores (Tiendas), and banks (Bancos). Type in the word and the distance to find them.
Whenever you pass a church, the game will prompt you to stop and pray. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Catholic Church or some other kind of church, you can choose to stop and pray if you want to. There are features that allow you to track your prayer and worship, too.
