The app is small, lightweight, does not drain your battery a lot. It does not require constant in-app purchases to keep playing. It does require a constant data connection, for updates, but uses little data. It will take advantage of offline Google Maps too. As to the game, it's partly a virtual treasure hunt, it's partly a sport; a great way to get out and get exercise, ideally with friends. You need to get near to each virtual flag to capture (cap) it. (All flags stay on the map for others to cap.) Flags are already deployed all over the world; win more flags just by playing, and earn points when others cap your flags. If you are unlucky enough to start to play somewhere there are no flags yet, then it's still worthwhile to start playing, with a friend. Each player gets a bundle of flags to deploy, around their area, and each play day, another free one, and another free for every 10 found, so easy to grow the map in towns or parks. More players boost the fun. As to costs, it's practical to play for free, with infrequent in-app adverts, BUT a cheap annual subscription provides many benefits, which include free special flags, extra daily benefits and no adverts in-app.
Great concept, but the incessant notifications are insane. And even worse, you can't turn them off unless you pay for a premium account. I weighed the options, and decided to uninstall the app. Can't deal with the insane notification tones, and I refuse to be held to ransom over an option that shouldn't be 'premium only'.
Good game but not popular in France so not really interesting to play there. And how can you deactivate the notification in the app?
I don't leave reviews. But after download this game. Witch actually looks like a good game. Realised that enyone who signed up could see my address. As I hadn't put my address in at enytime this is a little scary.
A fun game that you can play even if you're the first in your area. They make it easy to keep playing even if you don't want to or can't spend money.
Fun game to play. 1 Free flag daily so no money needs to be spent.
