The Dragon and the Rose

By Edwin Cooper

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


What would happen if there were a competition that was about nothing more than the competition itself... And that was exactly the point?

The Dragon and the Rose is an experiment in the psychology of competition. It is a world-wide battle with neither prize nor penalty, where everyone using the app is a competitor on equal footing. By choosing a champion, you will be siding with many others, and competing with just as many more.

It's ridiculously simple, strangely compelling, and an intriguing look into the psychology of human competitiveness (including your own). Give it a try, learn something about our collective competitive streak, and down with that accursed dragon/rose!

And so it begins. The world is taking sides; will you?

Simple and Fun

Fun to watch the stats change and see how what you do affects the overall ratio. I have been playing this game for nearly a year now and still find it fun. It is always good to have more people joining so there are others to fight against.

Simple yet addicting

This game us very simple and very addictive. Once you start it's hard to stop. I could find myself tapping for one minute or one hour. It is an extremely social experiment on human nature and competition to boot!

May The Rose Win Once More...

Join me my fellow tappers. Wage war upon this beast, this dragon, that has plagued our lands. With his fire he burns the grounds and blocks out the sky.

Let the sun shine over the rose once more.
