HORSES. How do they work? Well, if you're the unicorn star of Bennett Foddy's arcade skill game CLOP, the answer is probably going to be, uh, not very well. Unicorns, as you know, are drawn to pure maidens, and Sherrod has promised our equine hero that there's one on the other side of the hill over yonder. Too bad horses aren't that good with hills. Use [H], [J], [K], and [L] to move each of Clop's legs in turn, and try to navigate the increasingly difficult obstacles in your way. It starts out easy enough once you develop a rhythm, but as anyone who's played QWOP will tell you... it ain't that simple.
Like all of Bennett Foddy's games, CLOP is just as much about skill and reflexes as it is getting a good rhythm going... and having a good sense of humour. It's simple, silly, and frustrating, and not quite as inherently hilarious as QWOP could get, though the set up and overall design are a definite treat. Best enjoyed with a good dose of self-deprecating humbleness and maybe a buddy at the keyboard to share in the hoof-duty and your defeat, CLOP is a weird little diversion that might require some patience and fast fingers to master, but it'll be worth it when you feel the wind in your glorious, sparkly mane. Might I suggest an appropriate soundtrack?
