This was a very funny game. The artwork was great. I liked how the 10 seconds were used if you missed a shock. Overall it was great...good job!

Ha! Fun game - I liked the messages between levels. Could maybe use some variation if you decide to keep going with this.

A most amusing idea for a game. It seemed like the timing were a bit off. I'm sure I got some of them right that were caught as fails, but I didn't mind much because it was funnier to give the poor guy electric shocks XD Very nice cartoony graphics too.

Very good concept but a bit repetitive.
Music could bring a lot of tension in this game.
It was a pleasant game. :)

No Bravado unfortunately there is not end to the game it just continues until you inevitably lose.

I liked the art and the concept is quite nice.
Though on repeat plays the messages tend to get in the way. It would be better if the messages only showed up once or if the messages were randomized to show different messages every time you play. Also it can be quite easy to get the timing if the red is always in the same place. While I feel this may make the game too hard, it would be nice if the place were the life line went red would change in-between clicks. This could be a more effective way to up the difficulty that making the red place smaller and smaller.
That said it got me to repeat playing it until I got to the point were getting the clear became outright impossible. Considering that I don't waste time on things I don't enjoy I say that's is an achievement.

thanks for the well thought out review, i tottally agree with everything you said :) all the messages are randomized to a degree, i think theres something like 10 variants for every outcome.

The graphics were awesome. I wish there were more things to do than hit the red button.

Nicely done, especially with the art.

At first, most difficult thing was moving cursor from "next level" button to "revive" button. First few levels were also too easy. Then, randomness began and things got harder. I got bored of listening to "clear, clear" really fast~
Also, i like flash games - they combine pixelated sprites with perfect vectors d;

Just when I though it was too easy, it starts to become harder. Work on animations is excellent, and I really appreciate the bonus part.

Loved this game! It gets hard, its funny and fun. I loved it!! I featured it in my video compilation series of LD27 games, if you would like to check it out :)

It's a quick fun game and starts getting harder right when you think it's too easy. I like the art style.

Sep 12, 2013 @ 12:57am

LOL'ed at some texts! That was amazing experience XD

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
