Welcome to QWER a game specifically designed for trying to focus in to a relaxing way. QWER is played using just 4 Keys namely the [Q], [W], [E] and [R] keys on your keyboard. However if played on mobile 4 virtual keys will present themselves. The goal of the game is to keep falling squares high by pressing the corresponding keys when colliding with the stationary squares.

The amazing background music was produced by Winter89 go check him out!

As to challenge myself even further I've written all of the code required to run this game in under 700 text characters, so... it even fits in to this commentary below.

See it's right down here! ↓

d=document,c=d.createElement("CANVAS"),x=c.getContext("2d"),onload=(t=>d.body.appendChild(c)),f=(t=>x.fillStyle=m[t]),s=(t=>x.font=t+"px Ariel"),m=["#35A","#47C"],v=p=h=b=0,g=!0,u="QWER",l=500,k=40,x.f=x.fillRect,x.t=x.fillText,setInterval(t=>{for(c.width=c.height=l,f(0),x.f(0,0,l,l),f(1),s(150),x.t(h,170,300),i=0;i<b;i++)(p[i]+=v[i]+=.5)>540&&(g=!0),f(1),r=10+50*i,x.f(r,450,k,k),x.f(r,p[i],k,k),f(0),s(30),x.t(u.split("")[i],r+6,480);g&&(f(0),x.f(0,0,l,l),f(1),s(90),x.t(u,30,100),s(k),x.t("Press any button to start",k,400))},20),onkeyup=(t=>{if(i={81:0,87:1,69:2,82:3}[t.which],g)return b=1,h=0,v=[1,1,1,1],p=[1,1,1,1],u="QWER Over",g=!1;p[i]>300?(v[i]=-17,h++,b<4&&h>10*b*b&&b++):g=!0});

Well this was something different of a game and you really made it unique with the Q W E R Not sure if I have seen your work recently but you sure have shown that you know what you are doing and you have shown it with some great ambittion so keep that up, It was a tricky game and figuring it out was half the fun, With this you have utilised lots of elements in the right places to make this a fun game indeed, Simple visuald fun gameplay gotta pay attention though


You know what, im being really nice with this review. It is a good virtual juggler, and being made by one person is a feat.

Alas, the sour part of this review has begun and oh boy, do she a pucker a mighty. The mobile version of the app...fuckin runs *whole audience stands and claps and sits* it has the fuckin buttons *whole audience stands and claps and sits*, hell, it even kind of works ...

But when it loads in mobile, it’s not a filled screen, super easy fix. The buttons... if you tested them bruh would be fire...but they are laggy.

Im just an asshole who checks neegrounds on his phone though. I don’t have computer RIP!

Just send her through the portal one more time! Remaster (maybe even retexture) the grip of the game a little!

Love the achievements!

Thanks for your feedback!

Unfortunately when i implemented the mobile controls I wasn’t testing on mobile and I didn’t know that "Mobile phones add a bit of delay to a button press which basically ruined this game".
In the sequel i'll put mobile support on top of my priorities, since it's definitely worth adding.

Sincerely, Kees van Beilen.

Hm, nice game! But sadly, my phone has a delay to click the buttons on this game :( but this is not a game problem, so 4 stars

this needs a leaderboard

IF-dev responds:

Thanks for your feedback,

I'll keep it in mind for the next game that i'm making.

Sincerely, Kees van Beilen.

the idea is interesting, but it did not record my 250+ score run, which is sad

IF-dev responds:

Thanks for your feedback,

I’m sad to hear your score didn’t save.

Sincerely, Kees van Beilen.
