Its a good game that really shows what Sisyphus had to feel everyday, its may not be fun but its really creative. The few things we wish for the devs to add is a cutscene where we can see the rock roll all the way down instead of a menu telling us how high we got. We would also like a sort of character change every time Sisyphus gets stronger.

This game is amazing. It makes you reflect and thing ALOT. It makes you realize that you must find joy in the journey and you must imagine Sisyphos happy. 10/10 would recommend.

First off theres NO ADS, makes us want to donate just for that. Then, of course, Theres the gameplay. Step, push, step, push, step, and push the boulder over the peak. Turn around, and do it again. The never ending process, the eternal labor, depicts life in its most natural essence. All who rate this game lower than 5 stars fail to see the game, and life, for what its purpose and goal is; eternal suffering with no meaning.

One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

We spent an hour a day for a whole week trying to get that rock up that mountain. Didnt work.

Rock thats crazy. Crazy we were crazy once they locked us in a room a rubber room a rubber room with rats and rats make us crazy. Crazy we were crazy once they locked us in a room a rubber room a rubber room with rats and rats make us crazy.

Literally how you expect it to be.

We love how angry this game makes us and how much we love pulling out our hair evertine we lose progress and how much we love restarting after making it over 3 times just to miss click.

We cant find a single flaw with this game! ITS PERFECT!!! Theres no game quite like it. We will grind this game!

One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

This game is horrid beyond imagination. If you value any semblance of your sanity, stay away from the this soul-crushing and truly awful game. Was not it enough to curse Sisyphus? Do you also want to submit to torture, to eternal pain at the hands of the most arduous gameplay ever known to man? The developer of this game is a reincarnation of Zeus, twisted beyond words and now seeking more victims. Sisyphus may have been punished for cheating death, but this game will surely make you seek it.

One can only Imagine Sysophus Happy.

This really is a great game, from the subtle gruntings of sisyphus- we mean sisyphos! To the calming sound of the boulder rolling back down. Though stoicism doesnt seem to do anything, it would be nice if it made sisyphos push the boulder a few more meters each time he pushed, otherwise it seems like a pointless feature.

This game is pointless its utterly meaningless and a waste of time. And thats the point. And the game does a very good job at doing it. The creators of this game did very well we like the way it looks too.

The game gets us frustrated but you did a good job on it. Other people say its a bad game (but we think they just didnt get to the top!)

This game isnt fun, and thats okay. Not every game needs to make you feel powerful. This game is meant to make you feel the frustration and despair that the character Sisyphus would feel. It does that pretty well, at the beginning at least. You dont know what to do, do you follow the tutorial. You quickly learn how to beat the game system after ten minutes filled with despair. You learn that any failure is your fault alone, which we feel takes away from the intended feeling of the game. Our opinion is that personal failures are less frustrating than those by pure chance, and much less than those by the choices of others. We think that it would be much more frustrating if there was RNG in the game, a VERY small chance of randomly failing through no fault of your own.

Like a really slow endless runner. No point to it that we can see. Some people might like it. We need a little more explanation. Like whats the reason for randomly stopping? The rock (?) just decides it wants to go back down the hill? We have no say in the matter? Just push and push until, what exactly? No thanks.

First try made it to the top, our boulder didnt fall. We were expecting the timed taps to be much faster near the peak but our consistency in taps remained mostly the same. Ended at 250 for us.

This game is not fun; however, if you are familiar with the myth for which the game is named, you should not expect it to be fun. The developer has asked you to spend $.99 to repeatedly roll a boulder up a hill. In a Flappy Bird-style score mechanic, your score is based upon your willingness to continue a monotonous repetition of taps that move your boulder up and over the hill. The skill required for this is very limited. Patience is much more important. The trick: you can’t stop if you’re pursuing a high score. There are no levels. Just a strength meter that increases (+1) every time you successfully push the boulder over the hill, and a stoicism meter that increases at a trivial rate (+.2) every time you fail. Your score is multiplied by both numbers after you fail. Your stoicism carries with you when you fail, but your strength resets. This game gets brutal fast. There is no relief as you attempt to achieve a high score. Just the unforgiving fact that your failure is only inevitable if you choose to give up. However, you will give up, so failure is inevitable. Great game.

This game is not a traditional game, you can’t find joy from it. It is more like an education app, teaching you the hard and pain of insistence. You may get frustrated after playing this app – in fact people get frustrated after playing any kinds of endless running game,but usual games give you a hope while this game gives you a despair. But we still appreciate the creativity of this game, we’re looking forward to your next product.

Based off the famed Greek king, this game is an interesting concept. If your into philosophy this might be the game for you. We find it a wee bit stress relieving. I’d like to see them add a couple of new moves, or speeds, or a new tunic for our friend.

If your going to make a game like this at least make it free.

It’s interesting for the moment but kinda pointless.
