You don’t play it for the plot.

Modern technology has brought us so many wonderful things, but few are the as simultaneously ridiculous and downright necessary as this little flash game. The instructions are in Japanese, but the point is quite simple: smack the bejesus out of that haughty woman on the other side of the screen. Don’t feel guilty, she’ll aim one for your cheek if you’re not careful enough to dodge.

There is some kind of plot here, but the main point is that when it is socially or legally unacceptable to show someone the back of your hand, this game is the perfect refuge. Not that I’d advocate violent solutions to problems , but sometimes it’s better to release that kind of energy before it builds up and you’re suddenly driving down the road in a stolen car or something. The lovely graphics and music almost make this seem civilized!

    I think the best part of the game is that it aspires to actually have a plot, and even some sort of socially significant one, when I’m 99% that most people would be content just to slap people for no reason.

    The plot does give you the sense of moral superiority that makes slapping more satisfying, true. But it’s not like you’re doing the slapping just to get to the cut scenes or anything :)
