This game was surprisingly addicting! Although, there are a few things, in my opinion, that would make it better.

- The first is an option to end a game (if there is one, then I apologize, but I couldn't find one). Without this option the list will just continue to expand and then eventually become tedious to find the game you want to play.

-The second would be more words. I'm sure you will update the game to increase the amount of words it randomly generates for you in the future, but for now it just seems like the list is lacking.

Pretty fun game though! I liked how it tied in well with the Newgrounds theme and I look forward to playing it more in the future!

Mattster responds:

There is no way to end a game currently. I do have a feature in the works to ignore games, but from a programming standpoint it is not ideal (since the game actually still exists). Either way, I hope to release this by the weekend.

More words coming too!

Umad bro?

Incredible game! I love the simplicity of the design and how you can choose different shades and colors.
