The game mechanics and incentive structure are fantastic, and the operation is smooth and enjoyable. However, they need to tweak their formula for coin production - the numbers scale up way too quickly, way too early. It's too easy and quick to reach the benchmarks for age advancement, even when they're like ten billion (literally). Automatic resource production can be absurdly fast, and after modest investment you can earn billions of coins with a short walk. They try to get you to stay in each and after you have the requisite number, but there's no real reason to do so. Love the concept and the idea and even the implementation, and I'm hoping some other people in my area start playing soon, but hoping to see some adjustment.

This is a really cool concept and it was awesome at first, but it's too glitchy. I tried to capture a castle, walked for an hour to get there, and was supposed to get two new plots of land. It prompted me to create an account yet wouldn't let me choose a password, just kept saying password needed to be 8 characters long no matter what I typed, so I exited and re-entered the app and the two plots of land weren't captured anymore and I can't create an account. Lame.

It's a fun idea. And I enjoyed it for the first hour or so, but after that it lost my interest. I tried to create an account so I could sync it with my strava account, but the app has a bug that doesn't allow the keyboard to pop up to type my email or really anything. Then I went for a run with my location on and the app active to try to unlock some more hexes (I just ran strava on my watch). When I finished my run it kept track of my time, but didn't measure the distance. So no unlocking
