Brackeys 2021.2 Game Jam Submission:

(for some reason the fullscreen crops it)

We took the chaotic game Whac-a-mole and put an original spin on its gameplay, simultaneously making it even more chaotic than it was. 

We take advantage of the satisfying feeling of spamming your keyboard to reinvent whac-a-mole from what would’ve been a tedious point-and-click mess to an immersive arcade game.

You play a farmer, fed up with moles swarming around their potato farm. Take this hammer, made by some ambiguous material, to try and shoo away the moles that JUST. KEEP. COMING.

Your keyboard (unfortunately, you need a standard QWERTY arrangement for this game to be intuitive)
