Grab 3 friends and jump in a microwave!

Be the last kernel to pop, using any means necessary!

This game MUST be played with game pads (e.g. Xbox One Controllers)


1. Left Stick controls movement.

2. Left Trigger stores heat.

3. Right Trigger releases heat onto another kernel if you are touching it, this includes other players.

4. The A button dashes in whichever direction you are currently running.

5. Press the Start button to begin the game.
