  • "What lies beyond in the infinite void of data? One hard-ass game, that's what."
    - Chris Person, Kotaku
  • "Flappy Bird + multiplayer + retro glitch hell, or, in the words of the jam it came from, “a hard, almost unplayable game”. As the level progresses (aka you survive more than a few seconds) the game distorts, colors warping and dimensions shifting. The challenge is even knowing what you’re looking at."

  • "One of the best takes yet on the Flappy Bird mechanic, Ridiculous Glitching is a competitive multiplayer arcade game for up to four players on the same keyboard...A single-player option is included for practice runs, but the game only starts to shine when you can round up a few friends to play together with."
