"Yes, once Lasharus saw this game he had to play it and play it he did, with the weirdest results ever... and no... he wasn't able to brew himself a cup!"

Apart from being typical youtuber bait, it says "epic fail" when you make a mistake. Enough said.

2hrs or less to get 100% achievement status on this one.

If you get this game in a bundle, or on sale for $1 or less, consider it worthwhile. You'll get an hour or two of fun out of it and it's even more fun if you get someone else to play and watch them make the same hillarious mistakes you did. Ampu-Tea is easier to get into than Surgeon Simulator and appeals to a different audience, this is definitely a more casual version of the precise control genre--in some ways it almost feels like a short parody of Surgeon Simulator.

Your goal is to make a cup of tea to order, as it appears on a randomly generated instruction card. Sometimes you will also need to add sugar, a certain amount of water or milk will be needed, and other times you will need to avoid certain ingredients.

Some of the achievements are fun to get as well. I enjoyed clearing everything off and flipping over the table the most. The launch the game 500 times achievement is definitely meant as a joke.

The music is okay, there is only one short track to speak of. Sound effects get the job done but aren't memorable in any way. I didn't experience any bugs or stability issues and was glad to find that all features of the game and achievements worked fine.

+ A short laugh with absurd physics, fun for at most an hour

- Bad gfx, bad sounds
- Feels like a physics engine test
- Little to no content
- An insulting achievement involving executing the program 500 times

Ampu-Tea is a very lackluster and unpolished game. The first thing you are greeted with after launching the game is a poorly textured language selection screen, after which you are thrown into a room as a prosthetic hand, and tasked with making tea according to the instructions. This clearly looks like YouTube bait and/or an engine test.

Comparisons may be drawn to Surgeon Simulator. It involves the same idea where you control each digit of the hand with a separate key and are tasked with fulfilling a task requiring very precise control. The difference however, is that Surgeon Simulator looks and feels more competent, more streamlined graphics, physics, sound and control-wise while also offering a ton of more content than Ampu-Tea.

I sadly cannot recommend this title. It first struck me as being incompetent, but what pushed the limit was one nasty achievement involving launching the game 500 times. I am most certainly not exaggerating. The reason why I have a full 2 hours of gameplay on this title is because it took just an hour for my botting script to execute the game another 499 times.

Listening to Metallica while playing this = Profit. Repeat 500 times.
