Awesome! 

I love anti control games! The goal was kind hard to figure out (as in, where/when you need the box in the bowl) so maybe a little extra feedback there would be nice! I think you did a pretty good job other than the feedback or objectives in some levels!

Great work!

Thank you!

It was fun, but also really frustrating. I get that it's supposed to be frustrating, but I felt like it wasn't frustrating in a "good" way. It wasn't just that the controls were difficult, but they were difficult because they seemed entirely random and like I had little to no control of what went on in the game. It seemed like how the arms moved were completely random regardless of what arrow keys I pressed, and at some points, the arms wouldn't even move. It turned into a game of "spam random arrow keys until it happens to go where you want it to."

I played to the very end, though I didn't get to see the end screen since I was still holding down an arrow key from the last level, so it skipped right over it and back to the beginning. Another thing I noticed was flickering text (the instructions shown on the first level was one of these). Another problem I had was that sometimes I won without understanding why (the item not being anywhere near the bowl). At one point, I punched a bottle of Vodka into oblivion and it took me to the next level.

Despite being frustrating, I found it fun, though having some sense of control would've definitely been nice. I like the concept as well as your interpretation of Rick drunkenly eating breakfast.

Thanks for the in depth review!

I agree with all your points. You have a really good eye for games! I didn't have time to polish it so it is what it is! :) 

Just wanted to add a few things because you were so nice to review it so well:

Yes there is a bug where the goal objects sometimes will unintentionally push a player to the next level.

The test flickering is intentional.

There is a "final screen" but it's press any key to continue, so yes it appears to be a loop because most people are pressing on the button to play when the screen comes up.

So yes, for it to be a "real" game, it definitely needs more love! Thanks for playing! :)

I admit I didn't spend much time playing it, but I thought it was cute and I'm glad I checked it out for a few seconds :D Gotta love Rick <3

Haha it was funny trying to be Rick and drunk! Flapping arms over a cereal bowl makes me feel like a weirdo and a genius simultaneously. Good job! :D

I certainly felt drunk at breakfast!

I wasn't quite sure how to use the arrows for which arm, but I imagine that's part of the appeal of being drunk!

Nice interpretation!

Developer

Thanks!

The arrows move both arms at the same time. :)
