About this game

Agents of Discovery is an augmented reality app that gets you active and engaged in learning about the world around you. With Agents of Discovery, you become a top-secret Agent, dedicated to solving mysteries about science, culture, technology, history, nature and much more... Download the app and the Mission you want to play BEFORE heading out. Once these have been downloaded, the app does not require any data or WiFi to run.

There are Missions to play outside in Canada, the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. Check out our list of current sites here: https://agentsofdiscovery.com/play/missions/

Can’t find one near you? Fear not! Agents of Discovery has partnered with Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife Foundation to bring you Mission Conservation — a series of play-at-home Missions and livestreams. Head over to the Mission Conservation page for more information: https://wondersofwildlife.org/mission-conservation/

Let’s get the jargon out of the way:

Missions are games or scavenger hunts, made up of Challenges. Each Mission has a map of its location and a Field Agent to guide you.

Challenges are questions or games. There are a variety of Challenge types: AR Picker, Image 50/50, AR Catch, AR Sorter, and Sound Matcher, to name a few. Once you have completed all the Challenges in your Mission, you’ll unlock a reward!

What is a petroglyph? How much water goes over Niagara Falls? Why does the moon change shape? Who was Martin Luther King Jr.? Why are bees so important? How do you prevent wildfires? How do you change the world? We’ll help you answer all these questions and more!

Great concept! Loved it! Had a blast! All until the app wouldn't recognize what my camera was pointing at to let me clear the checkpoint 😩 Wonders of Wildlife jellyfish stop, i was at the correct tank but the automatic camera wouldn't take the shot. Between that and the long minutes spent waiting for the app to open i think it needs a little work. What i did get to see was fun and entertaining though! Just frustrated i wasn't able to complete the tour

Glad to hear you enjoyed your time at Wonders of Wildlife, Riley! Their staff is amazing when it comes to assisting players with scanning the Triggers, so werecommend getting their help at the front desk if you play some of their other Missions and can't quite get an image to scan correctly. Keep your eyes posted for other Missions there!

I used this for an activity at an event I was participating in and it managed to burn 500mb of data in 15 minutes. This is ridiculous considering that it's pretty much just a navigation app, and google maps only used 5mb in the 2 hours I used it that same day. This is a major issue given that this is intended for use outdoors away from wifi. I don't know what it was doing in the background, but this app needs to be optimised for more efficiency.

Hi Drew, Thanks for letting us know about this. While the AoD platform does focus heavily on navigation, we have other features available in our Missions and challenges, all of which have their own content and media. Missions with a higher amount of content can lead to larger download sizes. Missions can be downloaded at home or at another loca...

This is a fab idea and Mr 6yo was excited,we explored the Botanic gardens in CHCH. However for this junior walking this whole area he was knackered half way through. It was so hard to see on tablet due to sunlight, so we had arguments trying to pull it off him to check direction.. the rose gardens ie take a pic of your fav rose I even did this so many times and it still wouldnt confirm the tick. One area "scavenger hunt" he thought was amazing when it popped up that too was painful... I think for the juniors a bit more interactive on site would be good so they feel they accomplished something... The walking around with tablet in such a beautiful place he normally enjoys also killed it for us..he had his head down most of the time..The idea is great but tweak maybe? he had more fun when I put tablet back in bag and we created our own adventures looking for venus flytraps in the hot house... sorry to be a downer!! but needs work / didnt work for us
