I hate this. But in a good way

The mouse trickery was messing with my mind, bravo, such a clever way to make the mouse out of control!

Submitted

It would be nice to see some extra win conditions that don't involve clicking the X icon to win - if you search for the jam game HEART_ATTACK, it has some really good ideas on other minigames that might be worth iterating on and adding! Especially sliders and clicking on buttons to confirm something or say no, continue to turn my mind into spaghetti!!!!

Pretty fun, good polishing, the pop ups were funny, good !

nice game, very original and disturbing lol

Submitted

Very Funny and clever, I enjoyed all the different pop ups. Also well designed and polished. Good Job! It was surprising how difficult it was, but still very fun. 

Submitted

This is a fun, clever game! The popups were silly and it was fun just waiting to see what would come up next. Nice job!

Submitted

This is a really clever, simple idea. I found it kind of stressful and I noticed my arm tensing up a lot so I couldn't play it for very long, but it's super polished and it reminded me of the time I switched to playing with my y-axis inverted for a laugh, so thanks (?).

Well done on this, and good luck on future projects!

Pretty smart concept and very good representation. Well done!

Submitted

Great entry, loved the art style and jokes, really unique mechanic, much like riding a backwards bike, really fun sound effects and music. I enjoyed this thoroughly! ❤

Submitted

The theme is well respected, I felt A LOT out of control! The concept is funny, but it was so frustrating! I don't know if that's a good thing.

Submitted

This game really feels out of control! The cucumber pop up made made me lol xD. Nice job!

Perfect internet simulator doesn't exi-

The popups were very funny!

I wasn't prepared to have Left/Right flipped without up/down and vice versa and it got me good. I suck at the game but was really fun to play.

My brain is all twisted and hurting after trying to relearn how to move a mouse multiple time when playing the game. Ouch.

The game is really cool. At first I didn't get why some popup didn't close until I saw the purge button. I think my highscore is 18.

Congrats.

Even after closing the game, I'm still carefully trying to control my cursor thinking that it's going to be inverted.

So true! Happened to me too xD

I really liked the balancing act between memory left and purging the quarantine, it's a mechanic with a lot of potential I think!  The art is nice too.

I'd like to see if there's other ways of making the mouse movement 'out of control' because I didn't really like the random skittering. Maybe if it slid around?

Great job on completing it!

So hard xD

This game makes me go YES!

Really cool and well executed !

I scored 20.

I am actually surprised how much I was able to adapte myself to the mouse takeover.
