Loved this. It reminded me of a top-down 'Rampage', which... probably wasn't the point. I haven't managed to have a game where I'm in 'positive' figures, yet. Stomping things is just too much fun...

Really nice concept & presentation, and I like the little delivery messages at the top. It was a little hard control at first, but you get used to it after a while.

I managed to get a positive score, but I ended up standing in one place for the last 20s of the game because I knew if I moved I'd break more stuff. :-)

This game is pure genious!
The controls are such an interesting game mechanic that even the simple graphics and sound doesn't matter. Great!

Very nice! Love the idea, and the art :) It's good fun :)

Pity you can't move a foot again once it's back without tapping the other foot first though, but the controls aren't too bad once you get used to it :D Good job!

Imo that makes the game mechanics especially interesting.

very amusing. the walking controls took a minute to get used to, but after that they were oddly compelling to use.

I thought the control scheme was a lot of fun

This is a great game. I caused absolute carnage, though!

Really nice idea with the movement, was a lot of fun! The sound-effects also fit quite well.

That was pretty silly and fun :)
FYI, the pause button doesn't actually prevent the time from counting down!

haha, loving the controls. nowhere near making a profit, but fun all the same

interesting controls! they work pretty good once you get them.. but I think I enjoyed the destroying part more then the flower delivering :p

Once I figured it out.. really thought it was interesting. Love the idea of a giant robot delivering flowers... shortly before it crushes your house.

Loved it. Awesome controls, great concept, lovely art & sound.

Really enjoyed this, one of the best I've come across great stuff :D Lovely theming and characterisation. Great presentation in terms of graphics, audio, effects, "widgets" (text box and such like). In terms of where to go next - perhaps some more "roboty" sounds, different tasks, and maybe some "people on the ground"?

Great controls, graphics, sounds, and concept! I loved it.

Great walking controls. I suck a lot trying to turn around and I always destroy everything in the vicinity ^_^

So cool! Never played anything like it. When I figured out how to move fast it was tons of fun. Also, absolutely hilarious!
