Never before has a game title spoken so much truth

Australia is known world over for all the ways that you could experience your premature death. You could be beaten up by the kangaroo mob, you could be bitten by a snake, or even worse a spider, you could be savaged by a shark or consumed by a crocodile or even crushed by a drop bear. If you manage to survive all that I am sure that you could get the chance to die of thirst, hunger or heat. That is unless this game  gets to you first… Damn Australians are gluttons for punishment, and now we would like to share it with the world, enter F*ck this game.

A slightly earlier version of F*ck this game


This game makes no attempts to portray itself as anything other than what it is. It is a game that will drive you crazy and possibly onto madness. At first it may sound simple. You have 8 mini-games. They are all 1 button games. Tap to jump hurdles. Tap to launch a pixel onto a target. Tap to fire a gun. Play flappy dot, it is just like flappy bird, just with fewer pixels. 1 to be exact.

Individually these games are simple, They have simple rules and are all controlled with only a single button press. But… but that is where the honeymoon ends. You never get to play these games one at a time. You will start off with only a single game, but they keep on getting added. There is no switching games, when a new game is added, you play that at the same time. This means that you will be playing 8 games simultaneously.

It is hectic, it is frantic and damn it hurts… It is only short, but it is quite replayable and there is nothing better than pulling this up on my phone to give to my friends, after all it is always better to go mad with others…
