This game was a great idea, I even jumped on the kickstarter as an early backer years ago. However, the game in its current state has not been updated since 2018, no responses to reviews have been made, and, although you can still buy inceptors, the game is all but dead. It can still be used and is a bit of fun, even without the inceptor (multiplayer requires the inceptor), but the issues with the game remain and it is no longer being supported, so there will be no future updates or bug fixes. There were red-flags almost immediately after the Kickstarter campaign succeeded: inceptors that were never shipped, manufacturing delays, inceptors being sold on Amazon despite hundreds of backers still missing theirs, lack of support from the devs on their discord (used community members to offer suggestions but no real troubleshooting or support), and more. Personally, I had to fight with the company for almost 2 years, trying to get my backer kit from them, until i ultimately just asked for a refund, which took almost a year to receive. This game could have been a tremendous success, especially during the pandemic, giving people the ability to play laser tag in literally any setting. And, with recent advances in AR and mobile technology, the dev team could have improved on the base game they made. It's an unfortunate situation, but has left the market open for an even better attempt at a game like this.

Flawed from the get go. Have to enter a username, but the game fails to indicate it's username criteria, so unless you don't care what your username looks like and are ok with sitting there mashing your keypad until something works, don't bother downloading.

looked forward to this for years.. besides the confusing username issue to start.. it seems you have to buy a game gun from their website before you can play multiplayer. While I like the idea of finding random players to play this game with, I do not like the prospect of some rando finding my residence at 12am (midnight). There doesn't seem to be a 'do not disturb' option. btw... its midnight when I am writing this review and uninstalling. Awesome concept. Horrible execution.
