Based on the famous "Don't Break the Chain" productivity method and proven gameification techniques, TaskTowers gives you a fun, engaging way to create and maintain good habits, allowing you to achieve your long-term goals.
Each habit you create is represented by a tower that grows the longer you keep your daily habit streak active. Miss a day and you have to rebuild your streak and tower.
Track all your current and past streaks.
Compete with friends and other users to see who can build the tallest tower.
Unlock characters as you build your tower.
UI Changes. Minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
A few more features would make it feel more game like
For what it is it’s great. However,it would be nice if there was a way to send someone a picture of all your towers for accountability purposes. Also, I think music and a good background story improves any game.
In most games, the player is dropped into a problem they need to help solve. In this case, are we rebuilding homes for these characters because of an earthquake? Or were they kidnapped from whatever land or planet they were originally on? Like a background story and maybe getting to read short character bios as they move in would feel rewarding I think. Also, maybe points to buy in game stuff like paint to decorate your towers. That last one could be a paid feature
Fun But Very Limited
This app lets you do 3 things: add a habit that recurs on specific days of the week, mark a habit as done to add to its building (4 building types) and potentially draw in resident characters, and see the history of a habit.
It cannot: let you edit a habit's name or days, let you do anything with the building of a habit you no longer need to perform (such as demolish for points), show a city-like overview of all your buildings, let you mark a habit to recur a certain number of times a week without selecting specific days, let you undo marking a habit as done for the day, or anything else you can imagine.
It can also be buggy, sometimes not responding to swipe attempts to delete a habit or taps to enter the profile/settings view.
Bounty Tasker is a much more flexible gamified habit/task app. Better and Habitseed are also worth looking into.
I like this app, but its limitations (most of all in terms of making changes after something is created) are frustrating.
I like it but would like it more if I could Retroactively Mark tasks as done
The application itself is basic. The graphics remind me of old 8 bit game graphics. It is a cool retro vibe. My biggest complaint is that if you forget to mark your progress the next day your tower is demolished. It would be good if you could go back the next day and retroactively Mark whether or not you completed the task
