Would You Rather?
Would You Rather? review
Would You Rather is a game that lets you choose between two difficult scenarios which are relatable to most people. This is a fairly simple game which you can pick up if you have a few free minutes to play and kick the boredom.
Essence of Would You Rather - 4/5
This game simply asks you questions by displaying two alternative solutions on screen. For example, “would you rather live for only 5 more years as a billionaire” or “would you rather live to 90 and die poor?” The game asks moral, ethical and outright absurd questions which anyone can relate to, and once you’ve made your pick, you’ll see the percentage of other players who selected different answers. Questions are carefully curated, with a good number of them introduced by other users. If you are tired of answering questions, you can ask your own.
The game doesn’t offer levels or any other content. Therefore, be prepared to get a bit bored with this one after a while.
Graphics and Audio - 3/5
The visuals are bland and uninteresting. Trivia-based games shouldn’t have to be boring, but this game doesn’t even attempt providing a different kind of experience. The screen is split in half where the two questions appear. Behind this, there is only a dark background. Ads occasionally appear in the middle of the screen, but you can disable them. The graphics are not interesting, and you won’t enjoy this experience mainly because it’s so passive.
Controls - 3/5
The game doesn’t need you to do much. You’ll get on-screen prompts which ask the question with its two alternatives. You can then choose which one you want by simply tapping on the associated icon on-screen. It’s a fairly simple control system for a straightforward game, which is ideal for mobile devices. The problem is that it’s so boring, not even a swipe or action button to spice things up anywhere.
Immersion - 3.5/5
Given the fact that you probably spend half your day thinking about such things, this game gives you a pretty good grip on the choices that life can deal you. Therefore, you can play to meditate on this game or just kill some time on a bus ride. However, you can’t limit yourself to 25,000 questions alone, and soon the possibility of the game repeating itself becomes a reality. Real-time results with percentages also appear, which is great to see where you fit.
