Video Game The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic (PC) (2014)

Overview: Navigate a pudding through a haunted house ride, using power-ups to keep it from getting scared and successfully reach the exit.


20160706:
Initially I thought the controls were horrible (especially because the game was obviously made for a touchscreen device and later ported to PC), but as I played a couple of games, it wasn't as bad.

With that being said, the game was still childish and/or uninteresting.

Thoughts:
Pros:
+ Good concept/theme


Cons:
- Max. resolution is 1024 by 768; dimensions is 4:3.
- Obvious port of a touchscreen game
- Poor game mechanics (fun in theory, but failed execution)
- The game is childish, but the game requires command of camera, power-ups, and timing; by the time someone is old enough to play the game, they are too old to like it


Recommendation:
I wouldn't recommend you play this game even if it were in your gaming library. You might, however, consider playing it if you already had it for your iPad.

**There are seven critics which rated the game at a 90 or 100, with an eight at 80. All the Wikipedia page consists of is quotes from those eight reviews. Smells fishy.
