An entry into last May's experimental gameplay contest, with the theme of "high velocity," A Recurring Nightmare is a sort of lame joke, emphasis on the farts. You need to poo. A green arrow points toward the toilet. You have only a few seconds.
You run, at increasing velocity; in the first level, you are running through a city, and annoyingly, if you intercept a bus it carries you along -- you've probably lost at that point. The second level is at a disco, and if you run into a girl they dance with you, which takes time. There's a third level, but I haven't been able to reach it.
If you stand still and press Z and X alternately to 'shake your legs,' you gain a little time.
It's grotesque, a sort of one-note joke, but unlike most games that are one-note jokes, there's actual gameplay here, requiring a bit of speed-run skill, and a little luck, to get through. Interesting, in other words, for its minimalist approach: a simple structure that still engages the skill-and-action desire to accomplish.
