The objective of most games is to not die. Here it’s the exact opposite; you control an overworked businessman who sees no way out of the rat race — except for death. Grim? Yes, but it’s tremendous fun, kind of like playing a bizarro version of Super Mario Bros. You’ll enlist the help of two other characters to get through this side-scroller’s 50 levels: your wife and your boss. Your wife makes you happy, causing you to jump higher, while your boss makes you so depressed you can barely jump at all. The most entertaining aspects of the game are the death scenes, which range from electrocution to a satisfying splat as you land on metal spikes.
