The free iOS app lets you select and name a pixel art character to represent you and engage in ‘battles’, or tasks. If you complete one, you can swipe right to indicate a win or surrender if you’d rather leave it off your list for the time being. You can also add notes to each item.
“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
As you advance through battles, your character levels up and Victories shows you detailed stats about how it long it takes to finish a task and what percent of battles you win.
The interface doesn’t require you to learn anything new to get started. And since it tracks the amount of time you take on each task, Victories subtly encourages you to get down to work as quickly as possible. I found that to be more useful than in other apps that only let you list to-dos and tackle them on your own time.
