Mash-ups seem to be a good way to make a creative and potentially enjoyable iOS game. This mash-up, Rock-a-Tac, is a mix between simple classics tic-tac-toe and rock-paper-scissors. This confrontation of double hyphenated games includes a tic-tac-toe board being filled up by either rocks, paper, or scissors.
The win a game of Rock-a-Tac, users must fill a row with either rock, paper, or scissors. But, unlike tic-tac-toe, there are no ties in Rock-a-Tac. When a board is filled with no winner, rows are won by rock-paper-scissor elements.
There are both single and multiplayer modes in Rock-a-Tac. The single player mode pits players against an AI opponent while multiplayer can be against friends or random opponents via Game Center.
For mixup of two very simple games, the graphics look quite interesting. There are various arenas to do battle on and different looking teams to compete with (including heroes and villains). There are both free and paid versions. The paid version is $0.99 and includes no ads.
The iPad is a nearly perfect platform for real-time strategy games. And yet, quality RTS games made specifically for the iPad isn’t a booming category. Rochambeau is a real-time strategy for the iPad that breaks the genre down into its basic parts: paper, scissor, rock.
It’s an “area control” game that takes place on the increasingly popular hexagonal board or a linear board with only three pieces for each player. It’s a local multiplayer game; the players sit across from each other and play on the same iPad. On the hexagonal board, gameplay consists of dragging one of the three pieces (paper, scissor, or rock) in a path on the board. The game mixes the simplicity of a game of rock-paper-scissors with the complexity and strategy involved in a real-time strategy. It’s even possible to play multiplayer with more than just two players!
Rochambeau is currently available on the App Store for free. Rochambeau was released on February 11 by Randall Li of Triple Li.
