Inspired by the famous "0.5 A Presses" video, this is a platformer where every button can only be pressed 0.5 times-you can press it, or release it, but not both!

This game was made in Phaser 2 for the Game Maker's Toolkit Game Jam 2018. A WebGL-enabled browser is required to play (any recent version of Chrome or Firefox should work).

Well I would give you my opinion on the game but... to answer that we need to talk about parallel universes.

This is brilliant! Nice game.

I have no idea how

This is a good small game, it's like one big puzzle, especially when you get to the level where you have to think outside of the box. The level where you find the twist is very good, it seems like you really took inspiration from classin puzzles like SnakeBird or similar. I don't know if it could be turned into a longer and fuller game, but this was still a great experience. 

This is really clever, top marks

Scuttlebug Jamboree DLC when? Also really fun, the last level was definitely the best.

Great concept, but I can't seem to get past a certain level because I can't hold all 3 keys at once. Is that a feature of the game, or is my keyboard just weird?


Some keyboards, also mine can't handle many keys pressed at same time. My numbad worked fine for it. Might want to look up n-key rollover

I have the same keyboard issue but the game was still beatable for me.

Fantastic game!!!

The only problem being that I didn't know you could press before you start you should polish it up and release it!


Came for the memes, stayed for the gameplay

I'm not sure if it's wanted or not, but you can start pressing a button before the beginning of the level. I got stucked but i love this idea and the reference :D A good idea is a good idea, you can't say it's only a half.


It's definitely wanted. Some of them can't be completed without doing that. Sometimes Pannenkoek would have to do that as well to get the lowest amount of A presses in a level.

This is good.

loved it!

Really cool idea! Nice game!


Pretty nice execution of a memey mechanic


pretty good, Can't wait for the parallel universe


I think the instructions are not super clear, that might be because english is not your first language. But the concept is cool, maybe give a bit more time to look at the level before you have to decide if you want to start with holding a key down.

nice game :)

:)!!!! excellent
