    QWOP's review

    Published: 2013-07-04, by Peter Warrior.

    A ragdoll race game

    • Overwhelming addictiveness
    • Insane difficulty might be discouraging
    • It could include more events

    "Learn to walk before running."

    Acclaimed as one of the most original, addictive and hilarious games ever, QWOP brings back the essence of old athletic video games in which you had to alternatively smash your keyboard (well, only a few parts called "keys"). However, videogame biomechanics have evolved a lot and instead a bunch of pixels now we can enjoy a fully animated ragdoll.

    Your goal in this game should be breaking the world record in every athletic discipline (100 m, hurdles, long jump and steeplechase, plus a 50 m walk training). Anyway, you're forewarned: this game is insanely difficult, and it's a luck that it's so much fun to learn to play it even though it might be too frustrating to some. Graphics are plain OK, but the most important part of the game is the carefully-designed-to-hate-you physics engine.

    In conclusion, here's the game everybody's talking about. It's worthy of its price, though user-game relationships never were so hard.

    QWOP is the local sporting hero of a prosperous country in the scandinavian alps. Unfortunately, it is too cold there for an outdoor track, and QWOP has come to the championships without completing his training!

    You can help QWOP achieve his sporting dreams! You just need to show him how to run.

    Control QWOP's legs and arms by moving your thumbs around in the diamonds on the screen. Move your thumbs in clockwise circles to make him run. Make QWOP lean forward and back by tilting your device.

    And whatever you do, don't let QWOP's body touch the ground!

    - Five game modes: 100m, Hurdles, Long Jump, Steeplechase, and 50km Walk!
    - Hilarious physics engine.
    - Compete on Google Game Services leaderboards!
