Unlike Habitica and Epic Win, LifeRPG doesn’t feature the same cartoon design elements, opting for a sleeker, more professional looking user interface. However, you still earn the same type of points and rewards, but in the form of experience points or gaining skills like health or strength. You can set a “parent mission,” and within each mission, you can adjust different attributes like difficulty, urgency and how stressed or fearful you are of completing that task. The app will use that information, along with your self-reported energy levels, to help you sort missions by priority. If you’re having a low-energy day, it will suggest lighter, simpler tasks, but if you’re in top-shape, it might prompt you to tackle a more stressful or difficult project.
It’s a great choice for anyone who wants to use a gamified productivity app for work, because you can keep notes and ideas within each mission and even break down a project into sub-missions. You can set your own reward system, dictating how you win or lose points and what rewards you will win for completing missions. LifePRG is available for free on Android in the Google Play store, but it does include in-app purchases. Apple users are out of luck, however, since this app hasn’t made its way to the iOS yet.
