Cheap huh? Who would've thought it all those years ago... that one day in the not-so-distant future you could just turn on your phone and start playing a game for a mere $5!

I don't normally like to make disparaging comments for no reason (okay, that's a steaming load), but what the hell? It's like, there's parts of this that appear to be Enviro-Bear-style intentionally bad, especially with the trying-too-hard-to-be-absurdist premise of harvesting butter. But then the illusion of deliberate crappiness is ruined by apparent attempts at decent graphics. And then the price makes you wonder if it's meant to be ironic ("so bad it's worth $5!") or if the developer really thinks this is $5 material, which would be sad.

I ... I just ... don't get it.

I agree with Mindfield, this is confusing. Seems like they are not dumb, and may have been trying for some sort of Enviro-Bear "so ridiculous you must experience it" thing. But it'll never catch on at $5.
