RPS Saga Combines Card Battling And RPG-Style Progression
This is what happens when one of gaming's biggest genres is married with one of the world's simplest games.
There's something undeniably alluring about card games: they tend to appeal to the collection instinct inherent to all gamers, and the amount of strategic depth provided is generally accented with just a splash of random variables in order to keep things interesting. They make for good fun, of course, but oftentimes gamers forego card games simply because they aren't what many would call approachable. Luckily this is not a problem for RPS Saga, a game that simplifies card battling by basing it around a game familiar to just about everyone: rock-paper-scissors.
Naturally, rock-paper-scissors by itself isn't quite epic enough to be dubbed a saga, so developer Magic Cube has bestowed upon their game a campaign mode complete with storyline and several characters that can be used to duke it out in pleasing RPG-style fashion. Matches play out one-on-one with the player controlling one of the game's ten available heroes, and amassing currency allows for player growth as well as skill customization. And, for added good measure, Magic Cube have thrown in a run-out-the-clock Survival mode as well as a Charge mode where players push all their heroes to the limit to grab the highest score possible.
RPS Saga is available right now from both the Apple iTunes store and the Google Play Store for the low price of $0.99.
