Dork™: The Game


Dork was already "retro" when it was released for Windows and MacOS in 2006. It's even more retro now, and the Windows and Mac versions are unsupported (see below), but it's now available for Android.

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.

It even has a "single-button menu" mode for maximum one-switch accessibility.



Get it from the Google Play Store (it's cheap!)


Click to download. It still seems to work on modern versions of Windows, although the full-screen mode may act weird. Unfortunately you can only play the free sample levels; the purchase system is no longer working.


Probably doesn't work at all anymore, but feel free to download and give it a try.
