Hahaha, how delightfully random! Like the floppy sounds as well... though it makes me feel old. (dare I say it... out-dated!) :(

Thanks, we were kind of going for random. Got to love the old floppys, still have a C64 that works somewhere around here

Fine idea. Couldn't get through the platforming.

I was trying to think of a game like this, but you totally beat me down, yo. Really enjoyed this one. :)

That was really silly and funny, but the platforming was surprisingly hard! I kept colliding with the platforms sideways and that let me do a little collision dance until I could wriggle my way on top xD

That darn collision dance lol.

Fun game! The moving platforms, though... I've always hated waiting for moving platforms. And when I got to the second level, I saw the arrow pointing down, waited for a platform to arrive, got impatient, and jumped off. This resulted in me dying. It's a fun game, though, I just have a hard time giving positive feedback.

There is a spring at the bottom if you follow the arrows. I was going to try and get another sign made up for that but I ran out of time

Great music!!

Spent a lot of time waiting for platforms, so maybe you could trigger them when the player gets near. And sometimes the toasters were right on me, perhaps the camera could point further in front of the player?

Good effort though!

Played the game 'til the end.

I liked it a lot! I nearly broke my space bar rapid firing my floppy disks :D The idea is lovely.

The toaster move at nearly the same speed of your computer when jumping, which is really annoying, since jump over them, is nearly impossible.

And in 2nd stage, the vacuum cleaners shoot at you off screen! This is kinda unfair, but as they don't do much damage, it just made by space bar gets more damaged as I kept shooting non-stop trying to hit stuff off screen :D

But those are minor problems, it's a sweet game!

The toasters were difficult to get rid of once they get on you, and restart the entire game when you die seems a little... harsh. Because of the second point I only got to the beginning of the second level, but otherwise, seems like a fun game!

I had such fun play that!

Aug 28, 2012 @ 10:24pm

Seems fun, but I was turned off early on by how difficult the toasters were. Since they move at the same speed as you, it makes it very difficult to jump over them safely. Very funny, and a good concept.

Platforms are a little slow, but it's funny!

Will have some serious nightmares involving toasters :). Kind of creepy when there are 3 toasters on top of you.

Very random but fun. The only complaint I have is it was a little to hard (or I just suck). xD

A bit too many moving platforms for my taste but i liked the idea.

Wow I'm high. I think I destroyed my keyboard :D
That was very funny.

pretty fun, but too difficult for me.

Fun overall. Good concept!

LOL. Nostalgia effect. I love the humor and I liked the music too. Great job!

The idea is wonderful :D. As a suggestion, I think you must improve the platforms speed and sometimes the toasters get stucked on computers head and kill it too fast XD. Good job!

Very humorous, graphics have their charme. Here my tips to improve your game:

- If I die, the restart button should be centered and big. Didn't saw the button first time and refreshed the webpage to start new games.
- To ensure a proper flow of gaming, the "elevator" parts should move faster so the player must not wait several seconds until the elevator comes back.
- The player shoots while clicking with the mouse, was this your intention?
- Your game makes absolutely no sense xD

By the way - nice audio.

@Jeremias
Thanks for the tips. The menus were rushed at the end so the buttons are in odd places.
Yeah the elevators moved slower than expected. we were going to have enemies or turrets or something that shot at you from offscreen at all of them but we ran out of time.
It was not, I forgot to take it off the list of firing buttons.
Thats the whole point :p

wow, originality level 1000000!

Sep 5, 2012 @ 8:22pm

Cool idea, I liked the little text faces the computer made in the opening sequence. Beating up toasters was also fun. Every fitted together really well
