Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard_Spock is a simple battle vs CPU game releases by bwProductions.
“The eternal struggle continues! Battle against a computer-controlled opponent for supremacy on the field of fisticuffs. Do YOU have what it takes to emerge victorious? Popularized in 2008 by “The Lizard-Spock Expansion”, an episode of the hit American sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”, Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock (RPSLS) is a five-gesture expansion of the classic hand game Rock-Paper-Scissors.”
This application is basically an electronic version of Rock-Paper-Scissors with the two extra gestures adding in.
Full instructions are given in the application, but basically you select one of the five icons and the CPU will select one at random.
An animation of two fists getting ready to make their move is played out and then two big icons with the moves are shown and the Touchpad tells you who with winner is and clocks up the score at the time of the page.
Needless to say this is more of an Entertainment app rather than a full game, their is no option for a two-player game (via pass and play for example), this is purely you versus the computer.
Several games over the years have made modes or adventure around this the rock-paper-scissors system, it would be nice if this game had something like this, rather than the simple scoring system.
All that said it is fun to play to small doses and can be entertaining to show someone this new form of the classic game.
On the upside:
- Simple application which a nice user interface.
- Fun gameplay in small doses.
On the downside:
- No two player.
- Becomes dull after a while.
Overall, this is fun little application and worth the 79p just to have a go with from time to time. If the developers could add something more to the game, then that would be great. If you are a fan of the big bang theory then you will probably want this.
