Don’t Screw Up Review
“WARNING: This game could insult your intelligence, providing you have some. Want to play nasty or want to play nice? It’s your choice. I’m just the moderator, a real sweet-pea, an occasionally cranky game-minder, a vicious, teeth-baring attack-dog… neatly rolled into one. The rules of engagement are simple. I tell you to ‘tap’ and you ‘tap’ your screen.”
Don’t Screw Up! is an attractive new game from developers Shadow Masters. If you have ever played the game called Simon Says, then you will find the similarity. Only that it’s on mobile and it is condescending. The main motif of the game is however to make you feel bad if you screw up. Sounds very intimidating? Let’s find out.
Basically the players will need to tag on the instructions given to them. So if you are asked to tap your screen for five times, you have to tap your screen five times. If you are asked to swipe once then count to five and tap your screen twice, then that’s exactly what you have to do. However, if you screw up with the instructions, the game will start to make sure that you’re screwed up. There are more than one ways to do that. It will point out your flaws, crush your ego and leave you feel devastated. Okay, it may not be that serious but it will make you doubt your intelligence. And that’s the purpose of the game.
Your objective is to get as high of a score as possible. The guy in this game will cheer you up along the way as you try to beat your best score. You can also try beating your friends’ scores. Instructions are easy, but gradually get more and more difficult. If you jumble up, you will have to start from the scratch. You also have very few seconds to act upon his instructions correctly. To get a common idea of the tone of this game, here is what the welcome screen says to you:
“This is Don’t Screw Up. Follow my instructions and don’t make a mistake like your parents did by having you.”
Incredible, isn’t it? As you can see from the screenshots above, this game is vicious with its language and if you have had bad day or you take abuses a bit too seriously, you better not try it. However, if you are sport and want a simple game that can rouse laughter here and there, take your best shot at it. The game is available for both Android and iPhone users.
I am sure that by now you guys know why the name of the game is “Don’t Screw Up”? Well, the insults that follow whether you are good at this game or you suck at it, you’ll get insulted. Even if you avoid playing it for a few days you get an insulting notification just to remind you that it still exists on your phone.
