Free iphone/ipad app : StoneFace

Musical Statues, Snowball,  Sleeping Lions, Out-staring Contests ... generations of children have created games revolving around remaining totally static for as long as possible. It therefore makes sense that the new generation of kids have a hi-tech game on the same theme that they can play on ipad or iphone.

The idea behind StoneFace is incredibly simple. "Hold Still and Turn Yourself to Stone! Make a face and try to hold it as long as you can. Grasp the handlebars on the screen edges with your thumbs and the Artificial Intelligence (Ai) locks on your face. The Ai monitors your face for twitches, blinks, eye, nose, other movements. The longer you hold still, the more your image turns to stone. The Ai adjusts each level of the game to get harder or easier as you play."

It's so easy that players of any age can just pick it up and start to play without any need for complicated instructions. It's a very simple concept but you can prevent it from becoming tedious by trying to pull silly statue faces as well as adding the competitive element of trying to get the high score.

Best of all, it's free. What more can you ask for ?!

  1. I am the staring champion in our house!
    No one can out stare me so this seems like a real challenge!
    My only worry is that I might be staring myself out forever!
    Very cool app indeed!
