The Strongest from Laboratory is a game that has fun with itself. It can be described as a single-screen arcade punching game, complete with missions, unlockables, wacky pixel characters, and a helping or two of random events. The strange part is that even though the game is minimalistic in every way, you'll sit there punching villagers and thieves all night long.
Playing as the world's strongest human, you stand in the center of the screen with an arm facing to each side. Tap the left side to punch left, the right to punch right. Punchable things walk in from both directions, and all you have to do is punch them, thereby proving your strength. Missions listed at the bottom of the screen slowly complete as you punch, but if you hit a charming little animal your progress will be reset.
As the number of punched things reaches into the thousands, you'll have unlocked half a dozen or so helmets to wear. They're purely cosmetic and offer no gameplay alterations, but you'll wants them, precious, you will. The bonuses are perhaps spread a little too far apart, but with all the stats and the no-fail gameplay, you won't be left wanting for more entertainment. Grab it, start punching, and see just how strong you are.
