Now, very recently a new AR monster catching game Came Out And was very publicised by many prominent members of the community. I saw this and thought i’d Give it a go, and this is what i’ve Found:
For starters, the game is incredibly smooth for something that’s only been out 2 Weeks, And uses a lot less battery than Pogo. In terms of data consumption, the two are on par with each other.
The spawns And general distribution are amazingly well done. Both rural and urban areas are balanced, thus incentivising more people to play in smaller communities.
The user interface is alright, and does need some major improvements in terms of design. It just all feels a little bit tacky and cartoonish while playing.
The game also has PvP and daily quests, 2 features which many players have been clamouring for and asking for nearly a year or more now.
The throwing mechanism is slightly different, mainly in terms of how the balls move on the screen. It does feel weird at first, But it is fairly easy to master Draconius Go curveballs and catch with relative ease.
Regardless of whether it stole the whole concept from Niantic, they should really look at the game and see how much nicer the game could be with some of those mentioned features in Pogo. The game is fair for all players, handles just as well as Pogo and all it needs to do is be a bit less cartoonish. Then, it might actually become a serious competitor, who knows?
