Chop Chop Games seem to have created a game that might frustrate the best of gamers with MineRalph, a rolling platformer. The idea is simple as you just need to control your momentum, with a very simple control system. However, it's surprisingly challenging and…very weird.

The developer said it's designed to be difficult, with it being based on your own reaction timings. You can propel yourself around in 360 degrees with varying speeds, so it's easy to get it wrong and spectacularly fail. Chop Chop Games claim it's "best described as a crossover between Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Meat Boy - with the level design of Super Mario... and the control scheme of Angry Birds" and they're not far off with that description.

Features:

  • High speed, twitch gameplay
  • Easy to learn, hard to master control scheme
  • Countless ways to clear every level
  • Fully handcrafted retro pixel art
  • Original music that gets your heart pumping
  • Built with speedrunning in mind
  • NO Randomness, NO cut-scenes, NO bullshit!
  • Tons of rock puns

Interestingly, they're going to be giving away a copy of the full game, if you manage to stay in the top three on the high-score list for the 8 levels in the demo. Might be worth a shot, depending on how good your reaction times are.

Find it on Steam, due for release on August 5th.
