Design Considerations

Discoverability

The on/off button serves to tell users how to start the game. Buttons are also marked to provide clarity so that player 1 and player 2 would know which one to click.

Affordance

Three buttons are included in this game, and they afford clicking.

Conceptual Model

The left and right buttons are for the two players. They are on two sides to make it obvious that this is a competition between the two.It creates tension since this is a competitive game.

Feedback

Detailed instructions were recorded and announced in the game to guide users to play correctly.
