"Rock-paper-scissors" (aka chu-wa-chi) is a game that everyone knows. Well, you remember - rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock. Why not remember your childhood and favorite fun? All you need to do is: a) make the game a little more difficult (after all, we have already become smarter), more interesting, and b) transfer it to your favorite "apple" device.
So, we need to complicate and make it more interesting … How about not three "figures", but five at once ?! There is more sense in the game right away! Sam Cass, the inventor of the "advanced" version of chu-wa-chi, said that in the usual scenario, up to 80% of games in rock-paper-scissors ended in a draw. But after adding two new pieces, the probability of winning and losing (40% each) increases, and the chance to play a draw decreases (20%). So now we will quickly figure out who is the luckiest and who is not so lucky!:)
This version of the game was made famous by the popular TV series "The Big Bang Theory" a few years ago. To the rock-paper-scissors, the writers added a lizard and a Star Trek hero, Spock. Well … everyone loved it!
Why not transfer your successful experience to the now super popular mobile devices? The first idea came to the bright minds of the developers of the RockWall company. The guys studied the history of the issue, watched the same Big Bang Theory series - and a cute toy HoozaLooza was born.
What's the name?
From the English. "Who's a loser?", "Who's the loser?"
The "five" game items include a rock, scissors, paper, a lizard and a petal (sorry Spock). New and complicated rules:
- scissors cut the leaf and cut off the lizard's tail;
- the leaf wraps the stone and absorbs water;
- the stone crushes the lizard and breaks the scissors;
- the lizard drinks the water and eats the leaf;
- the water drowns the scissors and the stone.
How to play?
Launch the game (you can download it absolutely free), make yourself a nickname, indicate the rate (for example, 100 coins) and click on the Play button. Along the way, we manage to be surprised by the pleasant, stylish interface in gentle blue-green colors and note the well-chosen soundtrack - simple and addictive at the same time.
During this time, the system manages to pick up a real enemy for us. There is no shortage of them - the game has already been translated into 11 languages of the world, so there is no shortage of opponents. There are 10 seconds per move, the game goes up to three wins. For bonus crystals, additional opportunities are acquired - an increase in income in case of victory by 2 times (X2), a chance to win back after a defeat. Well, then everything is simple - choose your figure (if you want - "from the bulldozer", if you want - "with a strategy") and hope for the favor of Fortune. Just remember to rest - after 15 games played, your character will need five hours of rest. To understand how much more "strength" you have, you can follow the line around the avatar.
You can check your success in three ratings at once - general, "victorious" and monetary.
Market and Bank
In HoozaLooza, the developers do not seek to put the player on the money "needle" - in order to play for your own pleasure, it is not necessary to use in-app purchases. If you need crystals, go to the Market and exchange them for coins won in duels with other players.
The game even got its own bank! When you have played enough and are preparing to leave the game, do not forget to put your coins into your personal account. Every day your well-being will increase by 5%. That would be so in real life …
The time-tested concept, good graphics, solid soundtrack and the developers' desire to make the most interesting product - a lot speaks in favor of HoozaLooza. It is also encouraging that the guys from RockWall did not start making the game exclusively for their own earnings; donation is never a severe necessity here. So if you want to remember your youth and at the same time not spend a big sum on in-app purchases, feel free to download this simple and pleasant toy.
