Ratings and Reviews
I was an original backer from when this was in its earliest of days. Like Day 1 backer. And I have been holding out hopes for this game for so long. And yes like alot of people I kept having to wait for delays in whatever was happening with the game or the device. I have my inceptor and I used to have the Dev version of this. I have seen it change alot and I know its still in need of work and not where the devs had seen it when they envisioned it. And the fact of having to use an external device to make more use of the game is awesome, and a draw back at the same time. Its a difficult situation, because I love the scope and forethought and design of the game ideas they had originally. The idea was essentially a massive open laser tag essentially. There was more to it then that but thats how I saw it. And I really want this game to do well and to get to where it should be. Especially considering how much money went into building this game. I do think the biggest issue is the Inceptor device. Its awesome and a great idea, but even Pokemon Go had issues getting the Poke Go Plus out to market AND to get people to use them. I also have given it 5 stars as an optimistic way to hopefully bring up the rating and bring more people in.
Awesome Game -Inceptors Needed
This game is awesome, with inceptors. Other than that it’s just a neat little fps game. With them though, its like a giant real life CoD style lase tag game that can be played anywhere.
Downsides are it kills batteries quickly and the inceptors may not fit with some phone cases. Occasionaly, the discovering of games doen’t work but can be easily fixed with quitting the app and going back in
Has potential but game clunky, huge battery drain
First of all this game will drain a fully charged iPhone in 20 min tops. Gotta be a fix for this soon. Phone gets super hot after one game.
Inceptor mounting bracket needs to be bigger. I use an iPhone 6plus w a case but it won’t fit and I don’t wanna be running around outside without my iPhone case.
So far we’ve had difficulty connecting to games because you have to wait the 20 seconds each time before it “auto detects” nearby players allowing them to join. We have 4 inceptors and getting the game to send 3 invites each game rarely happens so we have to keep resetting. Should’ve been fixed in beta but hopefully this is in works.
Really not enough play modes. Could’ve easily put capture the flag modes in game but instead have very simple gameplay. And all the classes are virtually the same.
This game could be fun w large group battles but not enough variety for much replay value as it stands now.
And how do you turn the things off??! No buttons. It finally turns off once battery is full drained but that’s it.
Honestly disappointing after waiting years for this to come out but hopefully some new modes and bug fixes will help.
