OverviewOverview

Drink More Glurp is a wacky sports game where you take turns to play athletic challenges. The twist is that you have to control your over-long arms with a separate joystick and your body is a wheel you can roll along on if you lift your arms right up. You can move and grab with each arm using a button and stick for each.

It's a mix of simplicity and complexity that becomes actually quite intuitive to use as you get used to it. Still, you do have to wrestle with the real world physics. Executing the right move takes both precision and timing.

Run, jump, throw and compete with up to 20 people in the Party Mode or aim to score on the online leaderboards in Challenge Mode. Each time you play the activities and your abilities change depending on the sponsor. This might add low gravity or super-strength throughout. Or maybe sticky arms or exploding fists.

The funny physics and enjoyment of watching other people grabble with the controls makes this a great game to play together. Also, because it's turn-taking there's none of the usual pressure to perform at the same time as each other.
