Nice app, suited to walking

Now that Ingress is out for iOS it's a good time for a comparison. Users: I haven't seen any CR agents where I live, Ingress has a fair number. Storyline: CR's storyline is stronger. Playability: Ingress is easy to play but doesn't have a good goal due to weak storyline, CR is more involved. I can play Ingress while running without stopping, CR requires you to stop, review data, interact with drops, perform some thinking. Ingress is more game like, CR is more interactive novel. Granted I haven't played both much, maybe Ingress more since I don't like to stop while running. I think I'm going to try and spend more time working on CR.

Best in the genre

I've checked out numerous apps combining GPS and storytelling, but this is by far the best. The creators use GPS effectively in combination with other media to create a fantastically interactive game with great value that's worth quite a bit more than the price. I will definitely be buying more games from the devs if they are offered in the future.


This game is really fun. Especially if you're on vacation and want to explore the area, this is a good exploring game. It basically gives you targets that you "follow" (not real people) then you can interact with other spies through "dead drops" and it's fun if you enjoy spies or hints and stuff like that.
