The "game's" menu
Screen with score
This is a review of Gomie's LoveTester.

Gnomie's LoveTester was made by Gizmog and released 2016.
I would not call this a game, since it is really short and has no plot and almost non-existent game play.
Basically there is one screen, and a background that changes colour.
You will be asked to press the upper arrow key and after a short while the display will change colour and you get a rating - even if you don't press any key. The ratings will look like Chinese words written in English to me. But I don't speak Chinese, so that did not help. So, more or less, the program leaves you with no clue what it is about. And there's only one menu option: Quit (with a heart-walkabout).

There were two forum threads about this thing, revealing its purpose:

Thread for comparing results

Commentary and discussion

Basically, it was an experiment into how consistent OHR's key repeat rate is. I still intend to change the way repeat rate works so that it's reliable, to fix the problem that Giz had, because it probably affects a lot of games!

The ratings are Dragon Ball characters
