A game that does remind me of the game style of "Mr. Game and Watch" and the drawing obviously to the "GameBoy" is entertaining to pass the time


This game is all about stools and how you punch them. Graphics remind me of a playing a gameboy game. Controls are pretty much just jumping and punching. The trick here is to only punch the stools. Its a basic game, but still can be fun.

The game is simple and a bit challenging. But the whole of it is basic. You need to punch the stools and nothing else. It's surprisingly entertaining and requires a bit of focus, so don't play it mindlessly unless you are better at matching actions to images than I am.
Kudos to the creator of this game. It is fun, simple, enjoyable and it does as it sets out to do: Having John punch chairs.

I didn't know punching stools could be this cool. A very fun, simple game with a great art sytle and feel. Awesome music makes you feel like a badass stool fister...or something
