Great concept for a game!
However the execution is not great. So far in every game I have gotten stuck after a couple rounds because the AI just does not recognize the object. That really kills the fun.
Also it is hard to match up with people since you only have a limited amount of time to all get together in a lobby. Why is there not just a start button instead of this countdown?
All in all this game really should be developed further after Node Knockout since there really is some fun potential here. However for now it is not really fun to play.
Clever & well-executed! It's got a simple, fun, bouncy feel on a phone. My wife and I ran around the house taking photos of things and genuinely enjoyed it.
We had some issues keeping the game alive & synced but played several rounds.
You might consider including links so people could text URLs to each other instead of typing game codes. You might also consider removing or expanding the single-player time limit (if your partner doesn't type fast enough, your pending game ends and you have to start over).
