This was a silly little break from all the other action-packed titles this time around! Not sure how I was supposed to deduce the correct answer, but since you can click the right choice after failing, it's trivial to earn a 10/10.

The correct answers are 80's analogues of the Egyptian plagues from the bible, in the order in which they happened. River of blood = orange tang, so on and so forth.

Thanks a bunch for playing, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I thought this was an awesome interpretation of the theme. Also, I love the puns (which probably isn't a surprise given the name of our game in this jam).  My favorite plague is the death of all of the first born pet rocks.  nice job!

Super cool take on the theme!

Pretty funny! Lovely wordplay as well as actually staying within the theme. It took me a while to realize I had to use the keyboard controls, it would be nice if I could just use the mouse for scrolling. Nice work overall, liked the presentation and it kept me engaged until I finished it.

Developer

Thanks so much! Wish I'd gotten around to more chaotic effects when you choose the answers but I'm glad you enjoyed it enough to finish it!

Haha this is a really fun take on the theme, nicely done! As a heads up, it looks like the play in browser version has the bottom cut off!

Developer

Thanks for the heads up, and for taking the time to play! Looks fine in my browser, but I will do some digging to make sure I didn't forget to check a box or something in the project settings.
