    THE GAME

    MOTICO is a free indie arcade game of memorization and pure reflexes, available on smartphones and tablets.
    The game uses the Unity3D engine and was built over two years of intermittent development, essentially a one-person project, and was made possible with the use of Playmaker, known for freeing more artistic minded people from the hurdle of typical coding. Music was created on Figure.

    From the very beginning, MOTICO was meant to be as original and visually distinctive as possible while being absolutely minimalistic in its mechanics. Voluntarily casual, it entices players to play anywhere anytime.

    Recognize the pattern, tap the positive side, add up combos!

    HOW TO PLAY

    The game continuously generates moticos, one by one.
    A motico is made of two text smilies sharing the same mouth or the same eyes.

    Examples: : ) : ( - : o ) = / =
    The player must tap on the positive side of each motico.

    To understand this idea, let's pick a simple motico: : ) :
    Here's how it is constructed: : ) and ) : combine into : ) :
    : ) is the positive side, on the left.
    ) : is the negative side, on the right.
    Therefore the correct answer is on the left, so the player must tap the left side of the screen.
    On each correct answer, the motico is immediately followed by a new one and the player scores points and earns gold coins.

    Also, each correct answer fills the gauge and lights up its six cells consecutively. When full, the gauge goes up one level and is reset.
    The highest level is 99.

    Beware! Sometimes, both sides of a motico can be positive or negative.
    If they're positive, the player must tap both left and right sides.
    If they're negative, he must tap the lower part of the screen on the "esonull" symbol.

    Taping fast enough will build up combos for increased rewards.

    Each motico remains on screen for a few seconds. This time limit is illustrated by two vertical white bars sliding towards the center.

    When they touch, time is up. Each mistake, either a wrong answer or a time up, will generate a new red cross.
    The player is defeated once all three red crosses are displayed.
