    This is very silly.

    I like it.

    Definitely impressive for having been made in the last hour. With more time it could have been a great game. As far as constructive criticism: I'm sure you know what's lacking, no need to point it out :p

    wITH THIS GAME I CAN FINALLY PRETEND TO BE A HACKER BY SMASHING THE KEYBOARD REPEATEDLY.

    GREAT GAME, WOULD PLAY AGAIN.

    (also oof my wrists hurt now and my keyboard is probably writhing in pain from how much it just got slammed on)

    I mean, if it was made in one hour, no wonder it's lacking. But honestly, for what it is and consider how much time it took, I consider it impressive.

    It's kind of fun, kind of challenging. I like to mash buttons although the game gets tiring a bit quickly. But it's simple and fun for sure.

    Now I wonder how much more epic it would have been if you spent the whole jam on the game and that makes me curious!

      Maybe I'll make a sequel for the next GM48... ;)

    Haha this was fun short minigame, I spammed the keys and then gradually get to know better ways to spam keys :D Eventually I slided both hands' finger through the keys on sideways (I moved my body to the side of keybaord). It was fun idea, wouldn't work for longer game, but as short jam game, it was fun :D I liked how the screen effect ^^ Sound of music could made the game even better, but anyway, well done :D

    Finding ways to be physically able to mash more buttons was a fun experience. Some minor changes could have made this game more interesting, like a changing prompt of which buttons you have to press, so you would have had to react fast or something.

    If this was really made in the last hour, it's very impressive! I would have taken longer to think of a concept like this :D

      I was thinking of it changing what key to press but then I'd need to spend more time on mouse / gamepad support lol

    I came to speedrun this game, but it hit me with my nemesis, button mashing.

    I nontheless managed to extinguish all the buildings, took me quite a bit to get that mashing was literally the only thing you had to do, no timing with the ladder or anything, which would've add at list a little more involvement for the player.

    For being made in the last hour of the jam this still manages to not feel at all unfinished and for that I applaud you. The lack of sound is definitely its biggest downfall (after lack of gameplay), since the visuals look so hype.

      Thanks for the feedback, I was really rushing to get this done so I'm glad you think it's somewhat finished ;)

    I played it until my hands got cramp. These people need to learn how to be not on fire all the time. JEez.

      I guess their buildings are just very flammable ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wow I actually had fun playing this

    I am a very simple man.

    This was an interesting experience, I guess. I'm not sure "mash your keyboard" is really exciting gameplay, but for what it is it's alright.

    I liked the effects that show up when you mash really quickly, it was a nice touch though

    Besides that though, there isn't really a lot to this game.

      This was supposed to be more of a minigame than an actual game so yeah

    THE BEST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED, ITS NOT A WINNING ONE, BUT THE CONCEPT IS JUST FANTASTIC

  • WangleLine 🌸

    The concept - as well as the execution! - of this game is really funny. I love how over-the-top the act of pressing buttons is. These white lines are a very lovely touch, but I feel like some sounds or music would have improved this a lot - But at the same time I can understand that that was probably not your priority, given that you started very late!

    Anyway, my fingers hurt after playing this, thanks

      Next time maybe you can help with sounds ;)

I'm very surprised this game didn't come in last.
