Obey The Game

Obey the Game is a game that can appear very simple on the face of it but is a bit more complicated and nuanced once you dive right in. To play, you need to load Obey the Game in your browser and then make sure that you focus on that window (otherwise, the controls won’t work!)

You can fullscreen the Game if you want to increase the immersion. From there, you’ll use the arrow keys or WASD to move your little blue elephant around. You can use up to jump, but the space bar will do the same. These instructions will appear on the screen when you start, But you can press space to skip the instructions if you like

How to Play Obey The Game

Once you’re playing, Obey the Game will continue instructing you on what to do. The title of this Game is pretty literal in that sense, with the objective being to do as you are told in each mini-segment. Instead of conventional long levels, the Game is split into mini-games that quickly test your reflexes and ability to assess a situation.

The difficulty comes in knowing what to do, as the instructions are intentionally vague, and you only have a few seconds to react (however long it takes the bar along the top to drain).

For example, the Game might say ‘collect’; this is a reasonably simple instruction that tells you to collect the coins on the screen. ‘Survive’ means you need to keep your elephant alive, which might mean jumping over a massive spiked ball that is rolling about the place (no, we don’t know what kind of fever dream this is based on)

Things can get a little more confusing, though, when you’re told, for instance, to ‘push this’; there is a button with an arrow saying ‘this’ and another labeled ‘this.’ You need to follow the literal instructions and push the latter. Another curveball comes if you are told to disobey. This means you must do the opposite of what you’ve been told.

You fail if you successfully do what you weren’t meant to do. Finally, Obey The Game, the ‘coffee level,’ is just a chance to catch your breath. You have five tries until you start over. Please try and see how you do on Obey The Game!
