Personalizing, adapting, and balancing computer games - $10.00
$11.93 / hour
00:50:17 / completion time
ProsGo through a Unity game where you click on symbols, and play two games sometimes, then play one of the two games for a while, then go back to clicking on symbols, all while you have to fill out short letter/number codes or whatever
ConsStudy goes on WAY TOO LONG because of the timers on everything. Without timers, this would take about 20 minutes, but instead you have to slog through hundreds of timed pages and tasks, with the games being your only reprieve. The HIT says it will take 60 minutes, and this is sadly accurate only because of the timers.
How well you do on the games and tasks is irrelevant, as you don't get any bonus or whatever for performing well on the games, which would've been really good motivation to actually do this HIT. At the end, you're just going to want to speed through everything and get this over with.
In the end of the HIT is minor bubble hell, as there are a lot of bubbles, and the interface used for the small survey portion at the end is crappy and slow. You can barely see what you selected, the drop down menus are slow, and there are way too many questions on each page.
This HIT is best described by taking the first letter of each paragraph in this Cons section. Avoid this HIT and return if you ever catch it.
Art game (Chrome or FF only) - $3.00
$14.04 / hour
00:12:49 / completion time
ProsYou had to be screened for this 'game' by playing in previous games.
ConsThe game consists of a single Inquisit-like task that has you just pressing keys for a pre-defined image. It's not even a game, it's just a stupid IAT masquerading as a game. There are unnecessarily long timers between every single round of the task, so this inevitably takes up longer than you want it to.
Before and after the IAT are bubbly surveys with bubbles that have colors blending into each other, so it's hard to see what you clicked on. The drop-down menus also take a while to drop down and update your answers. This adds to how annoying this 'game' was.
Casual game (fairground theme) (FF only) - $8.00
$20.27 / hour
00:23:41 / completion time
ProsPlay a bunch of games that test different skills, then answer a survey about yourself afterward
The games aren't too bad (except for one), and you won't be bored most of the time you're doing this.
The pay on this is way better than the last game done by the requester.
The requester says this only works on Firefox, but this worked on Chrome just fine.
ConsOne of the games involves clowns, and goes on for what seems like forever, so avoid if you fear them
Bubble hell for the survey at the end, as it comes with the typical problems that this requester's surveys have
