Description: In Give the People What They Want, you play as a lowly mining robot who has been promoted to the service industry. It’s a tough job, customers can be very demanding, and you’ll need to adapt to whatever people need based on the jobs you’re given. You will need to learn how to optimize to get people what they want in the shortest amount of time and deal with their increasingly complex requests to show that you can be a good quality service bot.
Review: While it doesn’t happen very often, now and again you come across a game that is so truly terrible that it goes through the arse end of bad and come out smelling of roses. ‘Give the People What They Want’ is one of those games. It’s a virtual job style game in which you work in one of 3 jobs, a pet shop, a music shop and a toy shop. You do this to collect giant bags of money to buy parts for yourself (because you are a robot) so you can flex in front of a mirror. Yes, that really is the whole goal of the game, but it is the crazy gameplay that is the star of the show here
It begs you to mess about, you will be throwing cats, dogs, drums and toys all over the place with hysterical results. What blows my mind apart is that I do think the developer has done this deliberately to make the game fun, which is only more credit to them. For the small asking price, I do think it is something worthy of the download even if it is still a terrible game at heart.
It begs you to mess about, you will be throwing cats, dogs, drums and toys all over the place with hysterical results. It’s so poorly made that it makes it fun to try and play the game! This is a game that was so poorly made it really is a joy to play and for the small asking price, I do think it is something worthy of the download.
