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.πŸ‘Œ 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. :(

Awesome game

This game is awesome. Don't listen to the comments about the game lagging because I play the game on my old iPad and it works fine. I would like it if the spaceman could move down because often the spaceman is above the helmet and I can't get it. Also, the puke minigame is hard on iPads because the puke is everywhere and you have to get it all cleaned up (i would like it if you don't have to clean EVERYTHING, only the most of it. Because no one slips on a little bit of puke). Last of all, it would be great if you could add everything in the music video like the washing machine one.
P.S. To they people who say they did it but they don't get points - I rage a lot in games like this and I think I did it but I really didn't. 😝
