Xs and Os Review

Posted: April 1, 2015 in Game reviews

Greetings mortals, I am DracoJames102 and I am here to give you a review.

Today my friends we go back to look at the first game ever made. A game that was ahead of its time, a game that has existed before all of the other games even came to be and is still being played to this day. I am of course talking about Xs and Os.

Story

A complex story of good vs evil. No spoilers but it is quite gripping.

Gameplay

This game requires an ordinary pencil and a piece of paper. You draw a giant hashtag, you choose to be Xs or Os while your opponent chooses the other side and then an epic war between the mighty Xs and the powerful Os commence. The objective is for one of you to get three in a row. This was great inspiration for another masterpiece of gaming, Connect 4 (but that’s a review for another day). Be careful though, the game can end in a tie if you’re not careful. It takes true skill to master this game.

Graphics

The graphics were quite remarkable given the time period and it’s simplistic charm still holds up today.

Music

The existing soundtrack is rather dull. However you are encouraged to play whatever music you want.

Control

Be warned. There is a lot of drawing involved so if you can’t draw crosses and circles, you’re screwed.

Final thoughts

This is quite possibly the greatest game I’ve ever played in my life. It is a technical masterpiece in the world of gaming and it has and will continue to inspire game developers until the end of time.

Final rating: 😃/#?

Happy April Fools Day Everybody
