GamesPeoplePlay is a mobile-game deathmatch tournament to decide what InMobi’s favourite game is. Every episode features two games squaring off against each other. InMobians play these games and decide which one is better. This continues till a winner is crowned. Oh, and we get to have a ton of fun while doing so!

Episode 4: Aerox vs Stay In The Line

Can you hear that?


No? Listen closely.

It’s the sound of the weekend approaching! *cue celebration*


The weekend looms large and so does the final episode of the first round of #GamesPeoplePlay. We have been working hard and playing hard over the past three weeks. Some Repetitive Stress Injury aside, it’s been a fun ride and a celebratory drink is in order.

Before we uncork the champagne, a look at how episode 4: Aerox vs Stay In The Line turned out.

We had Erica and Samantha, dashing designers at InMobi, play the two games and here’s what they said:

Erica (L) plays Stay In The Line as WALL·E looks on in the background.
Samantha (R) is pleased with her efforts in Aerox.

Head to Head

1. Which game’s design do you prefer?

Sam: I like Stay In The Line’s minimalist approach. There are just three colours on the screen and it works really well for this game.

Erica: It’s the attention to detail that tips the scale in Aerox’s favour. The reflection of the environment in the metal ball actually changes when it moves. Stunning!

To each his own. Aerox and Stay In The Line share the spoils. 1 all.

A world ranking of 1,68,283 ain’t too bad.

2. Which game would you rather play on a weekend?

Sam: I guess it would be Aerox. I tend to have more time on the weekends and Aerox’s languid pace is the perfect game for that.

Erica: I try and cram as much fun as possible into my weekends so Stay In The Line’s shorter game sessions work in it’s favour.

Still nothing separating the two games. Aerox 2, Stay In The Line 2.


3. Which game is easier to play after drinking two beers?

Sam: Stay In The Line is challenging even before the beers! Both games require extreme awareness and dexterity so I’d advise against playing em after few beers haha.

Erica: If I had to chose, I’d say Aerox.


This went right down to the wire and all results were possible, but Aerox just managed to squeak ahead.

Now that the first round of season 1 of #GamesPeoplePlay is over, here’s what the bracket looks like:

The destruction of Smash Hit takes on the delicate origami of Paperama in one semi-final while the amazing Aerox will square off against hot favourite Agent Dash in the other semi.

We’re off for that celebratory drink. This is how it’s goin’ down.
