Rock, Paper, Wizards! puts the magic back in the classic game of rock, paper, scissors, and provides an endless adventure.
In Rock, Paper, Wizards! players follow Oscar Burlin, a loving father and magician who lives modestly and literally pulls rabbits out of a hat to make ends meet. At his daughter's birthday party he provides the entertainment to save a buck, rather than hiring another entertainer. Unfortunately, he is shamed and humiliated when his daughter and her friends claim he is not magician at all and is rather a hack who relies on cheap parlor tricks and a beautiful mustache to "entertain." Echoing in his head are his daughter's words, "Mom, can we get a real magician?" Oscar is truly haunted by his spoiled daughter's words, but rather than turn to bad habits, he decides to cope another way--by proving himself. In an effort to regain his daughter's esteem, and prove to himself he's a true wielder of magic, Oscar enters a contest of magic, the main event for the annual magical carnival: Magicians, the Gathering.
Using his power of split second foresight, Oscar plans to win the Rock, Paper, Scissor's magic contest. With his trusty magician's wand, lucky leprechaun shoes, and cape of compromise, Oscar joins the ranks of wizards, witches, and magical creatures all struggling for the title of best magic wielder in the world. How far up the ranks can he climb? The number of contestants seems endless, and seeing as it's a magical contest, it could truly be never-ending, but Oscar will stop at nothing to be the best and make his embarrassing failure at his daughter's birthday party all but disappear.
HOW TO PLAY: In Rock, Paper, Wizards! players control Oscar Burlin, as he battles an endless stream of mythical creatures, such as will-o'-the-wisps, goblins, gnomes, hippalectryons, witches, and wizards in the annual Magicians, the Gathering contest. Oscar's power of split second foresight was never enough to allow him to dodge a punch, but it might be enough to give him the edge he needs while playing rock, paper, scissors. Players choose either rock, paper, or scissors and wage battle against opponents with the same options. Oscar's power of foresight shows players what their CPU opponent will choose a split second before the reveal. The challenge lies in recognizing what the opponent will choose (Rock, Paper, or Scissors) quickly and choosing the correct option to defeat it in the time allowed. Note that in hard mode, Oscar Burlin does not have this ability and the game is therefore more about blind luck and chance rather than quick reflexes. When the red health bar drops to zero from its five ticks, the game is over and the player must restart from level one, using what they've learned and their more developed skills to last even longer in the contest the next play through.
