Get iFisted for the Holidays! FREE for a limited time!

Our debut title iFist is free for a few days! Come and get it!

This is the first title we released for iPhone, so it is pretty small and simple - we were just figuring the tech out and trying to gauge how much work it would be to create a larger project. It is still a fun little contest, though. Basically it's a sequence memorization game with a twist, and global scoreboards. Have a look - and happy holidays!

Game Details

iTunes Link






Here's how the gameplay works - the CPU will throw a sequence of moves (Rock, Paper, or Scissors). You must input back the opposing sequence to survive the round. If it throws "Rock Rock Scissors Paper Paper," you'd need to counter afterwards with "Paper Paper Rock Scissors Scissors."

Basically watch it's sequence, and then recall and execute the proper opposing sequence.

The longer you can last, the larger the sequence will become. There's 3 game modes to challenge you, it's just a very easy game to pick up and play and things will get pretty tense after about half a minute into it!

Looks like rock paper scissors, just based on the screenshot.

Isn't it technically more effort to play rock paper scissors with something in your hand?

Our game is themed around Rock Paper Scissors - but the gameplay really hasn't much to do with that at all, try it and you will see!

(BTW I think it would be silly to have just a "Rock Paper Scissors" app - I have seen them, they aren't very fun)

Worth noting - when our next game comes out in the Spring, we'll give free promo codes to those folks who are dominating the leaderboards from iFist! So now is a good chance to get practicing

I'm not really a fan or RPS or Simon Says, but, by gum, you guys have moxie and might have found a way to strangely combine the two into something fun. I'll give it a try for free.

Oh, and you have to know that you have one raunchy sounding thread title, eh?
