Ran fine, but after I drowned it just beeped at me :) Still fun though.

Short but totally awesome. I escaped and felt like I'd achieved. Good job!

Hahaha... I enjoyed the crowds measured, rational reactions.

Good fun. Made harder by the fact my keyboard has no characters printed on it.

Liked that the key was random each time.
Just rather plain and short I'm afraid.
Perhaps if there were several tricks that needed to be performed.

Simple, but fun! The audio really added to the gameplay. Nice :)

Nice and simple!

I found that if you spam the tap buttons too fast, it doesn't work that well. I wanted to spam click as fast as possible and that's what lost me the first time around, but I won on the second attempt. :)

The anti-mashing mechanics is interesting but there's still too much mashing (and not enough varied gameplay).

The crowd's reaction was funny.

The anti buttonspamming measures are interesting.
Once the key has been obtained, clicking on the lock doesn't seem to always work.

Too bad there's not more. It's too short even for LD entry.

I won on my first go, but had another to see what happens when you die...

I'm glad I did, heh. Also, I like drambles idea about tricks to preform.

I loved the crowd response in the ending.

Good job for a first LD game! I think your choice of shaky line art was smart, and the sounds were simple but helped increase the feeling of pressure. Some music would have been nice, and I finished it quickly, but it was definitely enjoyable.

Short and unique :), kinda like it. Nice balance too.. I had to give a few tries before I finished it.
