Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 5.0
  • 4Five minute distraction?!? I got bored after ten seconds. It's a good idea, but not enough fun by itself. The game's graphics need more work. The sound effects are very good.
  • 6This is a perfect 5 minute distraction for times when you're bored and have nothing to do. Don't be fooled by the seemingly low rating, there's absolutely nothing wrong with what this game offers. It's just that it doesn't offer much as it is an extremely simple game in all respects, presentation and gameplay. That aside, it is probably one of the most fun little games I have ever played. Just needs more in terms of gfx and other such things to be worth a better score...
