Playing Games - Good Job!

As the clumsy child of a CEO, you must climb the corporate ladder one office-themed puzzle at a time! Complete puzzles in multiple ways as you experiment with the interactive environments—a projector can be wheeled gently through an electric door…or catapulted through the wall. So toil (or tumble) your way to the top and make your father proud!

We have finished Good Job! and it was a blast! I say "we" because this was a co-op venture with Valerie. On the surface this game looks very silly, and that's exactly what it is! Although this game can be played solo or with a friend, I think the real charm of the game comes from playing with a friend. On that note, this game can really be played with anyone, regardless of how much they play games. The mechanics are easy to learn and there isn't a need for high precision. No elaborate button incantations needed. You can break a bunch of stuff (I have to admit, this is really one of my favorite parts), or play very carefully to complete each job perfectly. It doesn't really make a lot of difference in the end; it's just fun.

Your job duties can vary from fixing the office’s internet connection to cleaning up experimental goo. You may bump into your coworkers or knock over a priceless item or two in the process, but as long as you get the job done you’re one step closer to the executive suite! True star employees can also replay stages to try to earn a higher score by maximizing speed while minimizing damages.

Each of the job levels build on one another as you learn new skills, so even though the game is mostly the same throughout, the gameplay doesn't get stale. I actually was hoping for more levels after we completed the last one. Maybe some DLC!? Pleeeease!

The game is fairly priced and worth checking out! Enjoy!
