Play the game here, it requires you to have Unity installed:

So apparently the guys who made that totally awesome Raptor Safari game have raised the bar and made a spoof of Dinner Dash (and its ten million clones) of a Minotaur trying to run a China Shop.

This is his china shop:

The game is very simple, but brilliant. It gets funnier the more you play it.

Basically you're this big hulking minotaur that has problems walking in a straight line, who's trying to sell china to other mythical beasts. Hit a table, and the stuff on it might fall off and break, increasing the minotaur's anger. Get too angry and he catches on fire and goes on a rampage through the shop (which earns you insurance money). This attracts security, who try to subdue you with arrows.. so the race is on. Can you totally destroy the shop before the arrows kill you?

Or you could play careful, calm down, and just sell some fine dishes. But where's the fun in that?

With the money you earn, you buy upgrades to stats and new attacks. The goal of the game is to see how much money you can make in 5 days.
