Let This Lemonade Rage Game Distract You From Your Work
I wasn’t really a gamer as a kid. I remember my sister and I had a Sega Genesis we played with a handful of times, most often when our cousins or family friends came over. I can’t say exactly why I never took to the video games. The handheld Disney Tiger games were more of me and my sister’s speed.
And that’s what this new Beyoncé-themed Lemonade Rage game reminds me of…except I’m not having as much success as I did with those Disney games. But more on that later.
The Lemonade Rage game, created by Joe Laquinte, Justin Au, Line Johnsen, and Colby Spear, reimagines the “Hold Up” video where Beyoncé, dressed in yellow, walks down the street smashing and destroying cars, hydrants, and television screens in her sight. That’s the object of this game also. But in addition to the demolition, she must avoid haters, Illuminati conspiracists and bulls*t.
And that’s where it gets tricky.
Each time you hit something, you collect lemons. But each time you run into one of the aforementioned objects, Beyoncé gets more angry and moves faster, making her harder to control. The object of the game is to collect enough lemons to fill the pitcher. And I can tell you after at least five attempts last night, and over 130 lemons collected, I still couldn’t manage to do it. But I might have been at a slight disadvantage playing on my phone rather than on the full-size keyboard.
Take a shot at the game and see if you had better luck than I did. Even if you’re one who loves to hate Beyoncé, you’ll have a good time. You can play by clicking on the picture below.
