    What a silly little game. I found that the more time became a factor the more answers I would get wrong. Even when I knew the answer to the question, I still found my hand shaking the mouse in the wrong direction before I was able to have my brain jump in and tell it to wiggle in the other direction.

    Agreed, this is a fun way to see the effects time has on a player. In fact, in the first game the only indicator of time is that the music gets faster and faster to indicate a more high stress situation. There is nothing to actually say that I have to answer the questions faster, yet I naturally feel that this is the case.
