Minor bug, on the Playdate the curly-quote character in the name doesn't render correctly.
The game is fun, frustrating in the best way, and very fluid to play. It makes a good demo to show the crank to people, very easy to just pick up and play with no explanation.
The joke is fun until the punch line, but, and maybe I'm just not getting it, I didn't find the punch line to be funny. I was expecting a groan-inducing pun, or a dad-joke level joke, which with that build up would have been hilarious, but it was just... boring? Again, maybe I just didn't get it.
