Feature request - "Terminal mode" for bgan/light data usage.
The idea is a mode with the barest impact on data (essential for using bgans which have steep data costs) while at the same time providing a unique challenge for seasoned players.
Terminal mode mimics a text based terminal. You cannot see anything around you as the visual scanner is gone. The game does not tell you whats around you until you issue a scan command (with a button!) Which will tell you in text. To know if a portal has any links, fields, etc, you will need to scan it.
To avoid any unfair advantages, game actions are limited in this mode.
IMHO I think this "playing blind" has some appeal challenge wise. It certainly wouldn't be for everyone. And the minimal data transfer and receiving would be a Godsend to zero cell zone players.
