One Button Bob Walkthrough

One Button Bob is without a doubt one of the most unique and one of the most challenging adventure games online. At its core, the game really couldn't be more simple. While most of the other adventure games online rely on graphics, an involved back story and various upgrades, bonuses and things of that nature to be entertaining, this game just uses an original premise and truly difficult levels. This one also manages to avoid feeling stale or old regardless of how long you play because not only does the level of difficulty increase as you play the game, but what you need to do changes from level to level. The game keeps you on your toes and it keeps you guessing which in turn keeps you entertained from the beginning to the very end of the game. That isn't a claim many other adventure games can claim - especially not ones with a premise this simple.

One Button Bob has a simple, easy to understand premise. Basically, you are in control of Bob. Your goal is to get Bob from the beginning of the course to the end of the course but you'll have to navigate through all manner of obstacles along the way. Hit one of the obstacles or fall into a gap and you'll die. Any fan of adventure games likely knows that, in itself, isn't an unusual premise for an adventure game, but it's the controls that really makes this one stand out. You play the entire game using nothing but the left mouse button. In some cases, clicking the left mouse button will make Bob run. In other cases, it will make him jump. Sometimes clicking the left mouse button will make him take a single step. You never know going into a level what the left mouse button will do and that's what makes the game so intriguing. The controls are different from level to level.

The best way to do well in One Button Bob is to take a moment to look at the level and try to figure out what you'll need to do to reach the end. If there are ladders, chances are that you'll need to use the left mouse button to climb up and down those ladders. If there are gaps in the ground, you'll have to use the left mouse button to jump over those gaps. If there are objects that fall from the ceiling at a certain time, you'll be using the left mouse button to pause Bob so those objects can fall without landing on Bob. Don't waste clicks trying to figure out what effect the click will have on Bob. You should be able to figure that out just by looking at the track. While the game always remains challenging thanks to more obstacles and increased difficulty thanks to disappearing platforms and things of that nature, you should be able to at least get the hang of figuring out what you need to do to get through, even if you die once or twice in the process.

If you want to get through One Button Bob, you just need to stay on your toes. Be ready for anything as soon as you start a level. Figure out what you need to do as soon as you possibly can without wasting clicks in the process. It isn't an impossible game to beat or even to get a good score at. If you focus on using the fewest clicks possible in the easier beginning levels, you'll have a little more room for error later in the game when things are more difficult without completely blowing your chances at a decent score. Pay attention to where all of the obstacles are located and how they move. You'll need to be quick for many of the levels in this one and in many cases, timing is everything. If you know where you'll need to click, it makes timing that click much easier.

Overall, One Button Bob is an addictive adventure game that offers a continuous challenge and a unique premise that will please any fan of online adventure games. If you're looking for a difficult game without all of the bells and whistles, this is a great game for you. It doesn't waste time with upgrades and bonuses and goals you have to meet to progress. It simply challenges you to keep playing - no matter how frustrated you get. This game is prefect for newcomers to the adventure game genre and more experienced players alike because it is really unlike most of the other adventure games the genre has to offer. Try something a little different and have a blast doing it with One Button Bob.
