This was a really cool idea! The wave mechanic is really unique, and I don't think I've ever encountered anything like it in a game. Understanding it came somewhat naturally, but there were enough variations to keep it challenging. There were sometimes a few answers that were so similar that it felt a little impossible to work out the right one, but for the most part it was really fun running through all the options, ruling out the wrong ones, and double checking my answer all within 8 seconds. The time limit was perfect, and the game wasn't too short or too long. I do sort of wish there was a way to see the translation percentage of your current run, rather than your best run, or how many lives you have left. Maybe there were and I totally missed them though. Also, the story was surprisingly well written and provided the game with a really neat context and atmosphere.
Overall, this was a really enjoyable experience! Keep up the great work!
