Whether you need to decide who’s paying for dinner, who gets to ask Katie Robins out on a date, or just simply to remind your friend who the superior human being is, AOM – RPS is your game.
First, disregard my star rating. In the game's current form, it's a 3 star game, but this could EASILY be a 5 star game...
The single greatest problem with the game is the speed with which it's played. It is PAINFULLY slow. I've gotten others to DL it, only to have each and ever one of them say it's not enjoyable because everything takes far too long. I agree. It's supposed to be RPS, which is an instantaneous, spur-of -the-moment process. AOM/RPS is anything but that.
Having said that, the developers did the right thing. They offered the game for free to get feedback on how to improve it (I'm guessing). Further, they're hopefully trying to figure out how to make money from it (obviously).
Here's how to make the game worth buying:
1. No "pay-to-play" characters. They simply don't do anything worth paying for individually.
2. SPEED THE GAME UP. Loading screens, of which there are MANY, take FOREVER to pass. It kills any anticipation and thus enjoyment of playing the game.
3. Dramatically improve the GC/notification system and support. Think WWF here. I would EASILY pay a buck if my challenges went faster and had better notification...
All that being said, I would HIGHLY recommend DLing this game at this moment. It's extremely fun in an "in-the-moment," "I'm bored right now" kind of way. If the game can be sped up significantly and the notification/challenge system improved, I can see myself spending a LOT of time playing this...
Nice graphics! Makes rock paper scissors exciting!
A nice twist to the old fashion rock paper scissors game. Gonna tell my friends to get it so we can all play together. No more verbal argument over who does what and who needs to drink next! Yes, it comes in handy when ur out drinking too!
Great game, great graphics, very addictive
Everyone plays paper rock and scissors around the globe. It's great that you can now play it on your iphone with your friends everywhere!
The graphics is awesome. It's an all around well designed game!
