This is the most minimal version possible. There is no webinterface, no buttons, no pictures, only the basic function.
How to play
Since there is only the rudimentary function, that gives a random choice for your computer opponent and computes the winner, you have to play this game in the console.
- Open the console of your browser (if you do not know how to do this: right clicking on the page and choosing "inspect this element", brings up the developer tools and there will be a tab called "Console" or "JS" or something similar.), this will be your game interface.
- Type your move into the console like this:
rpsls("Spock") Possible moves are:
The console will show the full information on the game and the result:
Of course you can play again anytime.
"You choose Spock."
"Computer chooses lizard."
About this version
What I like about this version
What I don't like about this version
Apart from the obvious, that it is not even attempting to be user friendly fun, I don't like that the results are so dull: A simple "You win!" or "The computer wins" is worse than for example "Lizard poisons Spock. The computer wins!". This is the result of reducing the conditionals from 25 to 3, which seems like a good idea, but the result is even more boring than a game played in the console needs to be.
