This looks really cool! Local multiplayer games are the best. I plan on coming back to this later and rating it when I have a friend.

Fast! Maybe you could try putting the controls on a joypad stick and have the analogue position blend between the different fake, block and attack pre-poses?

I like it, very stylish!

Thanks to everyone who is going out of their way to play Smooth Operator with others! I know from my personal experience playing others games I tend to do it at night and so I don't generally have someone else to play a 2 person game with. I greatly appreciate it.

Very fun; my brother just keeps beating me. I will be bringing this game up again and again in the future until I actually beat him.

Agreed, "player x is better at videogames" is much more rewarding than anything else I've seen before :P

YEESSSS! Congrats for this one. Veeeeery smooth gameplay, loving it. Network play would be awesome. Only thing is: I really don't like time constraints -.-

Apart from that its brilliant game with an awesome style!

Brutal animations and a fantastic art style and colour pallet... the music suits the game very well - well done! Rated highly. :)

Excellent! Loved the idea, the gfx, the music. Everything. Unfortunately I couldn't find a friend to play. Its a very good twist to paper, rock, scissors mechanics. This could be a best seller in iOS. Contrats.
