Scissors, paper, stones must be one of the simplest games ever invented along with noughts and crosses, hangman and pin the tail on the donkey.

Just outwit your opponent by holding your palm in a scissor (two open fingers), paper (flat palm) or stone (solid palm) (you know all this already, right?

) formation. Scissor cuts paper, paper wraps stone, stone blunts scissors.

In this version from Shears the first to reach 13 points wins the match.

Sounds simple? Well I've just been locked in a half hour battle with my electronic friend and am going slightly blind. The simple game feels too simple in this version.

You just click on your scissor, paper or stone palm silhouette and see which formation your opponent picks. There's no animation, no extras, nothing.

It's the most basic version of a basic game you will ever find. Perhaps for younger players it will be fine, but for me I'd prefer something a bit more extreme.

Hold my beer and watch this: Rock, Paper, Scissors meets the Zen of Palm in another minimalist gem from Pedestrian Solutions.
