Crash TV is a lot like The Brave Little Toaster. Except that our brave little TV set is all alone. And roaming around some sort of grim warehouse. And there are lasers and spikes. All right, maybe it's not like The Brave Little Toaster after all. But it's certainly a high difficulty platformer about a small household appliance in search of something great. Use the [arrow] or [WASD] keys to move, jump and upgrade/exit levels, and the mouse to release a grappling hook.
For a relatively difficult game, Crash TV isn't all that frustrating. The most swearworthy, rage-inducing feature must be the grappling hook, which gives it a more Give Up, Robot vibe. It's a tad difficult to coordinate a mouse-based element with the rest of the keyboard-driven game, and some practice is required before you can hang between two sets of wonderfully sharp spikes without being ripped to shreds. Once you master this, everything else becomes much easier. This is not to say that the difficulty drops, but rather that Crash TV, with its uncomplicated design and one-screen-per-level policy lets you enjoy the experience instead of deliberately making it nearly impossible. Sure, it will probably still make you groan in despair once or twice, but the effort-reward ratio is just satisfying enough to keep you going. Plus, you can't let down the poor little TV set.
