Chop logic, April 3, 2016
There's one feature this game lacks that both "What's that Blue Thing Doing Here?" and "Come On and Wreck My Car" had; it literally ends after every single move, forcing you to restart or undo it each time, instead of resetting itself and allowing you to smoothly continue typing. There is a gameplay reason for this, but that doesn't make it less annoying.

(Also there's a typo in the opening text, and while this game was finished in a hectic rush for deadline, it's glaring, especially given the number of times you'll be looking at it.)

(Spoiler - click to show)It's a logic puzzle disguised as a barfight. Restart resets the person trying to punch you this week, while undo allows you to continue playing around until you find the winning move, which is easily found, thankfully. It does what it's trying to do, which is what I give a game three stars for.

Recommended for: any time, if you like reading about bar fights.

Amusing little one move Apollo 18 game about barfights, February 13, 2016
This game has one clever puzzle in it. It's Tuesday night at the bar, and like every other Tuesday night, someone is getting punched in the eye.

The game tells you explicitly what the most interesting actions are, but it can take some time to get it to work. A meta puzzle is going on, which makes sense for a one move game.

Recommended for one move fans.
