Gamers old enough to remember when controllers with “turbo” buttons were the hot new thing will also recall the ritual of riding in the backseat from the local video store, poring over a new game’s packaging and manual on the drive home. Arguably, though, part of the fun was ignoring the included booklet, throwing caution to the wind, hitting “start,” and figuring out the controls on the fly. The Adventures Of One Button Bob lets you recapture that feeling by coyly leaving you to your own devices. You control an extremely pixilated Ranger Smith-looking guy as he marches from the left side of the screen to the right—how you control him is a mystery. The only sure thing is that the left mouse button does something. In some levels, clicking lets you jump. In others, you’ll climb ladders or merely hold still. As other games are getting more convoluted, it’s refreshing to be restricted—it makes you pay that much more attention…
One Button Bob is a fun and quirky little Flash game that can offer up a heck of a challenge in the later levels. It’s a great showcase for what one button game design can do, offering up a title that’s ridiculously simple to learn yet somewhat challenging to finish. Since the stages only take seconds to complete, you should be able to blast through all 30 levels in well under 5 minutes... but can you?
