Introduction

Dork™ is similar to many classic arcade games, like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger; but it has a unique twist: you control the entire game with a single button.

Believe it or not, it's kinda fun.

You control a little yellow Dork-bug. When you press a key or the mouse button, he jumps in whichever direction he's facing, until he reaches something he can land on or bounce off of. Usually he's sitting on the edge of a rotating wheel or a conveyor belt, so you can control where he goes by waiting for just the right moment to jump.

Then there is the usual collection of targets you have to hit to finish the level, evil monsters you have to avoid, special objects that let you kill the monsters, and a few surprises you won't find out about until you play the game.

Dork™ is free to download and play, but only comes with a few levels to let you try it out. From the main menu of the game, you'll have the option to purchase and download additional levels for a very low price: you can get all 50 of them for $9.50, or half (25) for $5.50 (with the option buy the rest later for another $5.50).
