Ooparts Universe...? Looks interesting!

...very different from anything else I've seen.

Anyone have any insights?

Here's the developer's site:

Some of it looks interesting, some of it looks confusing, and some of it looks out of place. I have a feeling it's going to be one of those "too many styles melded together" type games. If I wasn't so backed up on games right now I'd TOFTT it, though maybe I will before the weekend's through anyway.

It looks like the main playing area is too small.

Thanks for the video link. That's made the game seem more interesting.

Found their website too.

More gameplay explanantions.

But I don't like having to flip the device about when I play though nor do I like accelerometer controls, so I think I'll pass.

I watched the video. I feel more confused than before I watched it.

Entertaining for all the wrong reasons

This game is hilarious. Worth a download just to experience how shockingly poorly designed it is made. It had me laughing out loud.

No introduction.
No instructions.
No back button.
Microscopic sprites.
Non existent enemy ai.
Terrible accelerometer controls.

... and then you die.

Really, it's so bad it's genuinely entertaining... for 10 minutes.
