Description Virtual Buffalo may look like a pet simulator, but don't be fooled: This bovid is always seconds away from death, and needs all your concentration just to survive another day! Press buttons with matching colors to complete a slog of split-second minigames. But be warned, the controls keep changing the longer you play! Will you be able to remember which button is which when they're all grayed out and switching places with each other? Instructions Supports Circle Pad, D-Pad, ABXY, or Touch controls. Colorblind Accessible Mode: From the main menu, press Down while holding L and R. Pause: Tap the Timer circle. (You cannot pause in the middle of a minigame.) Music Note Button: Toggles all music Speaker Button: Toggles all sound Striped Button: Toggles scan line overlay Lightning Button: Toggles flashing light effects Hard, Medium, Easy, Medium, Hard, Medium, Easy, 8, 6, 4, 6, 8, 6, 4, 4, 8, Easy, 4, 8, Easy, Easy, Medium, Hard Notes Cool Features:
  1. Fully animated characters and objects
  2. Procedurally generated music (Medium/Hard difficulty only)
  3. Multiple variations on rules per minigame
  4. CRT-style scan lines
  5. Original NES Font
  6. Local leaderboards
  7. Asynchronous "lazy loading" system (No loading screens!)
  8. Progressive difficulty
  9. Ability to toggle individual minigames (Disable the ones you hate, or practice 1 on 1 until you've mastered them)
Credit for the "Lullabye" and "Easy Mode" melodies go to Plastiware and Marjask respectively.

Express Yourself Wait, so is this like MyPet but fleshed out? kantackistan kantackistan I admit I haven't played that one yet. Got a link for me? The virtual pet theme is more like an excuse plot. The real heart of the game is trying to keep track of your ever-changing controls. As if somebody was messing with your controller to try and trip you up.

Express Yourself I made this comment before I actually played the game, sorry. ProKuku is right that it is very similar to WarioWare. MyPet is no longer around, AFAIK. None of the download keys still on the site work, though I could host a mirror for you if you're interested in it. It was a simplistic pet simulator by Tgaming548 (now called h267 on the forums), but after a while of it being on the frontpage, I think he deleted it out of embarrassment for what it was. kantackistan kantackistan I don't blame you in the slightest: VBUF is meant to be misleadingly intense despite the premise. That might explain why I never heard of it: if it was deleted out of embarrassment. So thanks for the offer, but I'll decline. (I know too well what it's like to be embarrassed by your older work.)
