Using the text as a hint.

Because if something is supposed to be bad it's not bad anymore. Also the level with the spikes is imposibble.

Oh no....

Hmm, how do you rate a game that's so accurate in its critique that it becomes hard to play? You pretty much nailed everything on the head about, well, pretentious games! There's everything to dislike about this - the graphics are trash, the text is trash, the gameplay is trash, etc. but every single one of these is a caricature of issues with other games. And for a four hour project, your physics work pretty well.

I'll rate this a 4/5 because I don't think a game intentionally meant to be bad can expect to be much better than that. I might have scored it higher if there had been some kind of punchline at the end.

this is so nostalgic and touching <3
