Phenomena is a two player game where the players compete against each other using five elements. Each player may select fire, water, earth, wood, or metal using the numbers on the keyboard in a kind of rock paper scissors based combat. After each player selects their element you transition to a separate room where you view which element each player has chosen as well as the victor of that round. If both players select the same element you tie; however, when you tie you must choose another element, but your element selection becomes limited so you cannot play the element you tied with and you cannot play a randomly selected element. this is repeated until one player wins with the same element three times or once in all five of the elements.
