Most people seem to think this would be a fun party game for kids. Let me tell you about my experience. Obviously this is an "anything goes" game, and we embraced this exactly how it was meant to be embraced.

I'm with a group of 3 other people, all of whom are males about 16-19 years old. We have a small living room with an open space about 10 feet away from the computer/our buttons, and it's wide enough to give us ample room between each other. We have one keyboard and three xbox controllers all lined up in front of us on the computer's end of the living room. From left to right, I'm second in line.

As soon as our button pressing prompt appeared on the screen and we set off towards our controllers, I jumped on the person to my right and clung to him. (Un)fortunately, this is that one friend who is 200 lbs of raw muscle, so while he may have been stunned for a brief moment when I hit him, he simply dragged me along the carpet until we got near our controllers. He started mashing the buttons on his controller, and I panicked -- I reached over and managed to wrestle the controller away from him, and I then threw his controller across the room.

I looked back at my controller to see the person on my left was mashing my buttons in an attempt to ♥♥♥♥ me up. The only thing I could manage to do from my current sideways position was use my legs to get him away from my controller, which is exactly what I did: I kicked the ♥♥♥♥ out of him until he was forced to retreat to his own side of the room, at which point I turned my attention to my own controller. Only problem was, I didn't know how many times my button had been pressed, so I pressed it a few times in an attempt to get lucky.

I wasn't lucky. The winner of that round was the person on the very right, who won simply because no one decided to pummel him and ruin his day.

Unique indie game. Family friendly and quite fun. Definitely not for playing alone. Seems like a kind of 8-year-old's party game but its good for use as that nevertheless. I recommend buying on sale if you're going to buy at all, it's not worth much money.

funny little party game for 1-8 players.
its mostly about reaction and pressing buttons.

but it can seriously get out of hand when the others do everything to win^^

its not a must have, but good for sparetime or when you have some friends around.

fair price!

Grab your buddies and a sixer of your favorite brew, and get ready to settle into some zany fun with B.U.T.T.O.N.

This cheeky little party game is perfect if you have a bunch of friends who like to get down on a board game from time to time. If you're going to be throwing a party with your friends, and they are even slightly interested in games, whether physical or computer based, I would highly recommend that you pick up B.U.T.T.O.N.

P.S.
If you drink alcohol while you play, don't break anything.

8/10 for original concept.
