About This Game

It's time for bed and little Johnny disagrees. Take control of Johnny during his temper tantrum and bring destruction into every household he encounters on his rampage. Perform fast paced twists and turns as you break everything in sight, but be sure to avoid Mr. NightNight, Mr. Sleepytime, and Mr. Boogerman or you'll be forced to take a nap! Eat candy you find as you crack open furniture to start a sugar rush. While on your sugar rush, show Mr. NightNight it's his turn for a nap! Now With Steam Trading Cards!

Notice: This is a simple action game similar to old school game play you would find in games like pac-man, centipede, and others. This is not an in-depth game with tons of endgame content. It's a beat your own high score game that is priced below what you would plunk into a coin arcade game. We appreciate your feedback and hope this explanation of what to expect when purchasing will reflect in your evaluation of the game.

I dont know how these guys keep getting away with putting out terrible games. I mean I always got their games for free and even then I feel cheated because they are just very poor games.Seems like the Devs dont even try.There is no way I can recommend this game I wouldnt even take it as a gift but I already made that mistake.

Since it's a game by Digital Homicide, the masters of pretention and asset flips, might as well toss it in to the trash bin after collecting the cards.

Convicted of a crime you didn't commit and sentenced to 10,000 years in Terra-prime's maximum security cryo-prison. You play as Johnny Rackham as you fight your way through 30 procedurally generated levels all the while battling the personification of you inner demons. A must have for any would-be game master looking to give his control paddle a workout.

Ive seen bad games on steam. This game is on the bottom of all games that were made. Its so bad. It suprises me that some people i see in the reviews have played it for a couple of hours. I wouldnt even play this for 5 minutes.

Do not pay for any digital homicide games. I bought their bundle and then realized that as soon as any of their games are greenlit they give them away for free. I paid $1.49 for 18 games and it was a huge rip off.

Few games can set new standards for technical failure and gameplay lack-of-design, but Temper Tantrum stands tall with Redneck Racers as example of what someone can produce when the goal is to create the absolute minimum of what can be called a game. This copy was provided by the developer in a giveaway to collect feedback, which I have every intention of giving in the fullest.

From the very start Temper Tantrum is off on the wrong foot. The music, a bland, short, and repetitive loop is blaring in my ears, and the game provides no audio sliders or, as best as I can tell, no options menu whatsoever. Nothing is labeled such when you start the game, and hitting Escape, P, or Start on a gamepad don't bring up any sort of menu. After manually adjusting the volume for the program in the Windows audio mixer I decided I would try to play the game...a foolish notion on my part. I first tried with WASD and it immediately felt awkward, so I picked up my controller in the hopes that would help, but it was only marginally (and I do mean by the tiniest margin) better. As far as I can tell—if you hear me saying this a lot, it's because the game doesn't explain itself whatsoever and I'm mostly left fumbling trying to figure it out—there are no camera controls, and most of the time you can't actually see where you're going. The only way to see anything is stop moving; if you stand still for a second the camera will swing back behind you. The only other button that appears do anything is Y, which is jump (why Y?).

The actual gameplay of Temper Tantrum is simple enough. Run around, bump into stuff, get points, avoid some monster. I've yet, however, to find any reason to continue playing this game beyond what it took to write this review. Even if it worked flawlessly it's simple to the point of boredom, looks atrocious, and is littered with bugs. You will often find your view clipping through the wall (completely blocking your view), or yourself partially clipping through a wall and touching objects on the other side, which though not entirely unwelcome while trying to get through this, should certainly not happen. My first go 'round had me stuck on the first level because the game insisted I had one item left to break despite going through the whole house multiple times and finding nothing. My only way to escape was to die until the game ended because of the aforementioned lack of any form of pause menu. Second run went much smoother and I was able to clear it easily, along with the next level, but eventually I gave up because I just could not stand playing the game any longer. There's a monster that follows you around at a snail's pace, but frankly the camera is more dangerous than the monster; the only way the monster will ever get you is if you can't see it. There's also candy left on the ground that acts like a power pellet and makes you kill the monster on contact, another thing I had to learn by trial and error since the game didn't explain anything at all. You can only pick up one at a time (which was what had me confused at first, how sometimes they picked up and sometimes they didn't), but they're plentiful enough you'll rarely have to worry about it, at least in the levels I played. Maybe the monster becomes a genuine threat in later levels, but I'd be surprised if anyone had the patience to play that much of the game. Oh, and as one final bug I noticed, numbers will often be rendered on top of each other.

In short, I feel that Temper Tantrum is a complete waste of time. There was not one single redeeming factor in my time with it that I felt could make it enjoyable to anyone at any price point. Not for 99 cents, not the current sale of 24 cents, not even for free. Just save yourself the time and find something better to play instead.

Pretty ironic


Digital Homicide does it again
(I should just end the review right here)

The controls are horrible (Its like ice skating with roller blades on)
You cant pause it
Camera goes through everything so you cant see anything

Not worth $0.24 as of 5/22/2015

Aviod this like the plague. It controls horribly, it sounds awful, it looks awful, the gameplay is awful, and the camera is awful.

There is only one song. It is short. It is annoying. IT NEVER STOPS LOOPING.
The control will remind you of Superman 64. There is no possibility of this being a good thing.
The textures will make you question rather or not you should have your eyes checked.
There are only 3 levels, they are tiny, the design is awful, and they don't make any sense.
They didn't even bother to give the game window a proper title. On your taskbar it just says assets. This is fairly ironic since game wise it has no assets.

I've seen better games designed, written, tested, and released in a single weekend.

The developers gave away copies for free and I still can't find a single nice thing to say about it other than the fact that it has trading cards.
