About This Game

The planet is being attacked and it will take a bodaciously bad-ass cursor pilot to blast the scum to whence it came! Dodge, dip, duck, click and point your way to glory in the most gnarly retro-arcade death trap that you are likely to ever play! Point Perfect will put that "I'm a real PC gamer" attitude to the ultimate test and might make you cry a little in the process. But fear not young pilot, because with great challenge comes even greater glory and nerdy bragging rights! For a select few it will even mean graduating from the prestigious Point Perfect University of Aeronautics. Which of course includes a printable diploma that you can hang on your wall to make Mom proud!

When this game was loading, it said
"TIP: You should do great with all that hand exercising you do."
...Let that set the tone for this game.

The game is super difficult but the bosses are well designed and fulfilling to defeat. Also it has a pretty cool perk/score system that makes it very replayable.

Play the (probably) most annoying game ever made. That's balanced by the fact that it's also one of the most super-fun games I've ever played. Point Perfect is seriously epic.

WARNING: If you play this game, you will be trolled. Your wrists will bleed, but you will keep playing. You will lose your temper, and then you will laugh. You may lose your sanity, and time, and sleep, but you will still keep playing. Play at your own risk.

All this game demands of you is to be on point perfectly most of the time... 99.99% will suffice.

Enjoy the workout.

Playing this game is like training yourself to become the most powerful mouse user in the world.
As the title have stated "Point Perfect", you need to use your mouse pointer perfectly.
One mistake in the game and you're done for (-1 life point).

With it's 8-bit character in music and graphics it charms me. At the same time it is good fun to my mousehand. I love Indie-Retro. 8/10.

Point Perfect will change the way you click and drag forever. It's a fun mouse skills game with loads of replayability due to its wealth of mini-games and boss battles. Highly recommended for those who enjoy avoiding obstructions with your mouse pointer.

Click and Drag: Prepare to Die Edition.

Honestly, I really appreciate the simplicity of the game, and the lack of tacked-on "features." This is a mouse oriented game, and it does that well- frustratingly so. The pixelly aesthetic compliments this game very well, too- it's way too easy for developers to add distracting graphics to a game to make it artificially difficult, and this game appears to have avoided that.

A good timekiller.

It's hard to think of something creative or insightful to say about this game. There aren't really any hidden depths; it's a game where you click and drag to kill things while avoiding actual contact with them. What you see is what you get. Even for $5, it just doesn't seem as interesting as other free games I've played. In just 20 minutes, I feel like I've already seen all the game has to offer. Some interesting achievements might have gone a little further in expanding the concept, or maybe some more powerups and upgrades.

As it stands, it's just a little arcade game. Perhaps a good mindless game to unwind and abnegate with, but not great for extended play sessions. The frustrating difficulty (not to mention the game taunting you if you play poorly enough) and lack of depth make it get old fast.

A simple but unique game in which the mouse cursor is your spaceship. You attack by dragging boxes over your enemies while weaving carefully around obstacles and bullets. Sounds easy, but it ain't; one wrong twitch of the mouse, and you're dead. The mechanics are very slick, though, so it'll always be your fault. If you enjoy trollish humor, you will more than likely get a kick out of the multitude of meme-inspired bosses (my favorite so far is an emoticon that belches red ascii phalli).

Frustratingly difficult, but fun and funny. Highly recommended!

Point Perfect is an interesting idea of a game. It takes after one of those harder, frustrating-to-play kinds of games and it does that well. Unfortunately, it has no tutorial (not one that I can recall anyway) and the hints it gives are just insults to the player. The insults are meant to be funny, but I felt that it's very obvious that the developer(s) tried too hard to make it funny and it just missed the bar completely. The only reason I still play this is because there are Steam achievements. Only buy this so there can be more trading cards in circulation (don't buy this if you don't plan to trade them with/give them to me). :)

Wow, I really hate this game. I'm absolutely terrible at it, and die stupidly fast, and I can't stop myself from trying again...

(I don't actually hate it)

Mechanically its simple:
- Don't let the cursor touch anything
- Make boxes around things to destroy them.
- Play various mini games
- Kill bosses

I strongly recommend you play it.
For something so simple its surprisingly addictive.

My only complaint is some of the "game snark" when you lose gets annoying after seeing it so often, but that can easily fixed by not being terrible like me!

Point Perfect seems like a unique concept at first, and it is.
Thing is though, this seems like a game thats worth maybe one dollar. Not five.
Only buy this on sale.

Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a pixelated Fast Pace reflection game.


You are able to play this game in fullscreen mode (Press F)
You are able to change the volume of the Music and Sound with a slidebar.
Main menu music is okay.

About the game.

You are playing with a mouse cursor and you have to dodge and avoid any contact. If you touch an enemy/wall/projectile or whatever, you will die and lose a life. It requires alot of fast reflexing and focus. There is no manual or tutorial but on the same time you only need a mouse cursor. I didnt knew you were able to drag with the cursor to make block to kill enemies. I thought the only thing what u have to do is avoid. The game has "achievements and unlockments". You are able to choose from some "abilities" before you are goign to start. 1 more HP, get 1 point each second. and Drag power level 1.

Game is super Repetitive.
Doesn't have alot of variety.
Only Mouse cursor required.
Alot of Trial and error.
There is no Pause button, If you press ESC you will get kicked to Main menu with a nice results of losing all CURRENT progress.
If you have died, you will lose all of your power. (unless ability)

Other things.

Game has some References to other games and things.
Developer trying to be funny with "text".
I have the feeling hitbox isn't always 100% correct.
The more power you have the bigger your drag will be.


I Give this game a 3/10

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
Nescio, sed scentio et excrucior!

And you should totally play it yourself. No "let's play" can let you feel the anger and challenge I see and feel through this game!

Played it for approximately 3 hours just in the past three days (when I bought it) and I don't see a point coming where it could turn out to be boring.

I am very confident that I will beat this game, eventhough I don't have a sketchy idea where to find the end.
Until I read that there was an achievment for "finishing" the game three times I held it for an endless game.
Now I am of course very eager to finish it!

This game is loads of fun, even though it can demolish people alot, and the bosses are challenging yet memorable (sometimes for the worse) if you have the time i'd say go for it......also dont let the game know your getting mad, then the game will win

$5 for a game about clicking and dragging. Far from a fair price, but the way the game uses these mechanics and the personality in the game more than compensates. Buy if you don't mind dropping money on an anger-inducer.
