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.

Agents must be over 13 years old (for residents outside of the European Economic Area); or over 16 years old or such age needed to consent to the processing of personal data in the Agent's country of residence (for residents of the European Economic Area). Unfortunately, no children may play Ingress.

Engaging experience

How to improve a good app by updating the interface to current standards?

Step 1: modernize the UI so it doesn't look too dated (it wasn't updated since launch)

Step 2: improve the resolution so it can utilize the power of our smartphones. (Unfortunately the game lacks a low performance mode for players buying smartphones on a strict budget)

Step 3: make the game harder to play while driving so players won't create risky situations (note that the amount of clicks required didn't change significantly)

Step 4: don't waste resources in order to make the old version playable, this process is costly and does in fact restricts the developers by making them simultaneously consider two versions of the game (e.g. Ingress prime and ingress lite)

Step 5: take into consideration that people who use older devices will have problems, but this is necessary to prevent stagnation that would cause player base to get bored and stop playing.

Ingress prime surpasses the original in every way. Some other reviewers didn't take into consideration that a review should account for the software, not the way it works on an outdated device.

Ingress is dead

Niantic killed the game with the UI revamp. God, it's laggy, has unnecesary FX, unintuitive UI. When the update came I was appaled and removed it. Some time had passed and I loaded it only to check if Ingress has some points of interest in the vicinity. I couldn't even do that b/c not responsive. Plus, it tried to take me through the tutorial. Die in hell, I'm never comming back.
