Welcome to the world of Ingress Prime, Agent. The fate of this universe, and perhaps others, depends on you. The discovery of Exotic Matter (XM), a resource of unknown origin, has sparked a covert struggle between two Factions. Cutting-edge XM technologies have completely transformed the Ingress Scanner, and it is now waiting for you to join this battle.

Explore the world around you and interact with places of cultural significance—such as public art installations, landmarks, and monuments—to collect valuable resources using your Ingress Scanner.

Fight for the Faction you believe in. Harness the power of XM to evolve mankind and discover our true destiny with The Enlightened, or protect humanity from a hostile takeover of the mind with The Resistance.

Dominate territories by linking Portals and creating Control Fields to achieve victory for your Faction.

Strategize and communicate with fellow Agents in your neighborhood and around the world.

Update Has Promise But...

As with all changes, it takes time to get used to them. At first I disliked the changes but after a couple of hours of playing I’m beginning to become accustomed to them. The new inventory system, recharge system and especially the recycling system are great.

However, the rate at which it destroys my battery is ridiculous - definitely not worth it for prettier gfx. Another big problem is the lag - it was quick and effortless to hack and field but now each action seems to take longer and longer. The new Glyph Hack definitely feels inferior to the old one (is there any need for the 3-2-1 countdown before entering the glyphs? It just unnecessary waiting time!)

I’m confident the negatives can be fixed and patched. Please don’t let me down ;(

Change needs to happen

The pros:
I like the new graphics and even though most wont agree, I do like that the store has been thought out and updated, similar to the pogo store.
The cons:
the new layout and the loss of intel within the app as ruined the gameplay.
Why couldn’t you of kept the game the same and just updated the graphics.
Now it’s too confusing, everything feels like a chore, I can’t even quick link while in a rush, the UI lags, My progress isn’t as distinctive as before, the inventory is confusing, I personally think scrolling vertical would of made a great difference.
I know this sounds petty but the activity update in the top right annoys me, the whole display is too bright and I’m not sure if the font has changed but it dam well feels like it.
This is the first time that I’ve felt like I don’t want to play & it’s very sad because I’ve been looking forward to prime for so long and have been scouring the net every day to find out when it’s out.
Maybe it’s time to go back to pogo.


Love The Game, Hate The Lag

A game that can’t be played isn’t a game at all. Niantic have neglected gameplay for graphics. The iPhone 6 version is so slow it takes 20 minutes to fully deploy 4 portals. The glyph game is buggy. Whenever the game is downloading or processing textures in the background it lags horrifically - we’re talking seconds per frame, not frames per second. Any kind of competitive gameplay is out of the question. Unless the iPhone 6 version receives serious performance updates, don’t bother getting it. Wait until you have another phone or y’know... just play a different game that actually works.
