Really fun, some things could be added
This game is very fun and I like to play it whenever I'm bored. But, there are a few things that could be fixed:
The vomit clean up game is really unfair, it doesn't seem to matter how much I clean up, it seems pure luck wether I win or lose, and I lose most of the time.
The plane game never shows up for me. I think I got it only once. I haven't disabled the microphone, so why is it not showing up? The other games seem to show up at a reasonable rate.
This isn't that big of a problem, but sometimes when I play the tilting game when I tilt my phone in the other direction the guy still falls. This doesn't happen too often though.
A few games could be added, like the clothes dryer and drug dealer ones from the video aren't in the game. For the clothes dryer you could keep tapping the screen like the guy in the dryer is trying to punch the dryer door out so he can get out. If you run out of time, the dryer starts and he starts swirling around. For the drug dealer you could have something similar to the don't press the red button game, like a character staring at the car trying not to touch it. If you don't the character will look up at the dealer and run away, and if you fail the dealer stuffs you in a bag and smacks you with a bat like in the video.
So, this game is fun, but it can be improved. I hope you listen to my suggestions.
Awsome but a few improvements. The bear on isn't that hard!
Love it😝. It is so Awsome and my high score is like 1,600. Love how it teaches you how to not die in a dumb way. Needs more ways to die though. The sequel is horrible and I think one version is just fine.👌 one more thing to improve is the content. The plane one is not so easy. I have no idea what is wrong with the space one. It is really easy. You may have to replace the clean up-unrefrigerated pie one with something less gross. Maybe you could show a huge refrigerator with a bunch of pies in it and a hidden cherry and you would have to click the cherry. example:
And guys, the bear one isn't that hard. Just duck when the beat icon gets into the yellow zone. That's really all you need to fix.
Good for free, but don't get addicted too glitchy.
Has the potential to be a really fun pointless game. The graphic design and music is awesome. Also for some reason really enjoyed the music video.
The thing is if you really get into it and try to play it it is very very inconsistent. Some games are at a level of difficulty that you have to be quick which is fun, And then there is some games which are impossible and don't actually function on my phone.
Like the spaceman, there is no way at all to get him to his helmet since the tilt doesn't seem to work correctly on my phone, no top to bottom control at all. And the one where the guy pukes also it seems impossible to actually clean it up and every time your finger Goes the slightest bit over the edge of the screen it doesn't register that you're touching it anymore so you try to touch it again and then it doesn't work. Seems to randomly register how much you've cleaned up regardless of how much you've actually cleaned up.
Which drives you insane if you're actually trying to play the game and see how many points you get. It's no longer about a game, but whether or not you're going to get a minigame that glitches out or not. :(
Also the plane game crashes the app, there's a way to turn that off why is there no way to turn off the other mini games that so many people are having problems with?
Also so many ads now. :(
