This is a simple tool I am playing with to compare 6 characteristics / elements of games and gamified apps. It is helping me to find pattern. Put the name of the game or system you want to compare. Then give a value out of 100 for each of the 6 characteristics. These should be the average that you feel matches the system.

Take a screen shot and send it over if you like!! You can also save your applications for others to compare against.

A bit more detail.

Remember, this is not science. This is about how you feel about the applications. I may feel differently about Wikipedia to you, and vica-versa.
