Absolutely my favorite ARG. Simple but engaging. There is some monetization - you can buy points with $ - but if you invest a little more time it's not necessary. Devs are friendly and responsive, community (so far) is polite and enthusiastic. The game is in its early stages without feeling half-built. If you're a fan of Pokemon Go and have a gothy streak, you're gonna love it.
If it gets fixed I will gladly change my review. I am using a Google nexus 5 and it doesn't load fast the splash screen with the raven logo and the raincrow studios text. Correction: It took several minuets and then said the servers are down. Updated to 3 star until I play it :)
After reading other comments, I found out that I have to turn the camera on for adding portals or familiars. Other than that, I'm hoping for a wikia because I love the game and wouldn't mind reading the parallel history of the world, like what gave rise to the Seven Hills Pact. Thank you for the fun!
I just created an account last night I was playing and everything was working just fine I casted a spell and I picked up a gem. Apparently you collect four of them and turn them in for silver. I was playing the game again this morning and I casted several spells and I found another gem. However when I tried to pick the gem up it disappeared and did not appear on my gem bar. The game is great, a little laggy but that could be my service. I just want my gem so I can continue to explore the game. Side note, I just realized that it is under maintenance now. The chat log is working fine and I'm not getting glitches now!!
Wow! Thanks to the very creative development team who clearly knows how to make something as interesting and addictive as this! Coming from playing Ingress a LOT, I am always interested in other mobile geolocation AR games as they occasionally become available. I have played all that I could find and found them severely lacking in their implementation. Covens has finally took a step in the right direction by creating something really unique. It's beautifully designed, engaging, and best of all, hard to put down. I would like to see a more detailed introduction to the various aspects of the games features, such as, how certain resources are used to influence player actions. I would also like to see the in game chat to have the options for distance from the player, to be able to connect with others locally. I can't wait to see how this game develops as it matures and takes on a larger following. If the devs are reading - keep up the amazing work! I hope you will eventually begin taking location suggestions from players to fill out the map more, and please, keep going!
I like this game but still very glitchy and laggy. Sometimes while expelling it will glitch and leave the add herb jars even though my spells complete thus not allowing me fly or do any other spells. Reload is timely and the only fix. Kills my battery and quickly glitches when walking around with it. Wish flying didnt cost energy as we get so little. Would be better to increase energy pool with lvl.
