Eeek, sorry, I can barely look at the screen. I don't think the contrasting earth tiles were a good choice

I'm sure I've not lasted more than 20 seconds on this so far. It seems to give me flashbacks of the 80's when if a game seemed to be unbeatable, the keyboard use to suffer a lot of abuse. I remember my friend's CPC464 having a bow shaped keyboard, because of games that were as hard as Super Happy Speedy Gerbil, aah the memories!

one of my pet hates is folk bashing keyboards/mice/gamepads/etc because they suck at games. How is destroying the only thing with which you interact with the game going to help you succeed?

Saying that there is another method of destruction that is ok, over use like playing games which require you to "waggle the joystick" until the base comes away form the stick

Then I probably shouldn't mention that, at one point, I considered making this a waggle-a-thon?

It's 100% a gag-game, and it's a one trick pony. I'd really love to be able to see people's faces as they plummet into that first set of spikes

Crap game, crap intended, and yet inexplicably, already one of my most commented on games of the year.
Typical...

Jamie was just a kid at the time and a bit hyperactive, he may have been a keyboard-basher but was a very well natured individual otherwise.

And yes, I'm also guilty of over-waggling and snapping a joystick or two. If you believe when I said "snapping a joystick or two" then you must be gullible, add a zero or two then that might be more closer to it.

I eventually made myself a little gadget just to attempt to solve the problem, it consisted of a piece of old PCB connected to the cable of the joystick I just broke, with two massive copper legions on it and an old Stylophone stylus. Worked pretty damn well come to think of it, I just wish I still had it so that I could put up a photo.
