Very nice! It gets the affectionate parody stuff right and gets your attention despite (or because) the mind-numbing game mechanic.


Cute game! Simple but satisfying. If only washing real dishes were as enjoyable, then my kitchen wouldn't look like the trash pile they found the E.T. cartridges in.


Very funny, i loved the part where you put the cups in the sink.
