Life really starts as a player at Level 7 upwards. The game dynamics is fun. Though the layout is simple and based off Google Maps, it draws you in to its location finder, with a familiar female voice guiding you to the next waypoint and updating you on your Exotic Matter (XM) reserves. A really immersive game where you cannot play alone. You must make friends and be respectful of one another, respective of faction or playing style. Do not judge the book by its cover; you might just find an ally in an opposition. Keeps you fit walking around so don't forget to stretch! #Resistance
This is an out door, augmented reality game and a two faction "turf war". As you progress in the game, you can meet a lot of like minded Co faction players and might find yourself exploring new spots in your local area with the off chance to visit strange and foreign ones. Great idea, great game. Thumbs up for niantic. Liberté, egalité, fraternité and viva le revolution.
It's super fun when starting out and discovering the process. Other players can make you hate it or love it. Comm spammers are out of control. Becomes repetitive and time consuming. Data drainer. Battery drainer. But for some reason, I can't stop playing.
Awful portal info UX,that's hard to play with one hand. creating link don't show loading animation. Unable to choose what lv of resonator be deployed by clicking on it, but by sliding working.
Some stuff that can be fixed: DPI scaling (a happy medium between regular and the small icons option), one finger rotation (it's in PoGo, it should be here), better control of spam in COMM, and more significant updates (ie How Ultra Strikes were introduced). Also, please bring Glyph Hacking to Android Wear. EDIT: A few months have passed since I wrote this, and the game needs new life.
