Tried it. Gave up as an utter failure after 30 sec. I applaud the sheer sadism of whomever dreamed this up.

I got on line and one point in snake and then crashed and closed it. That was fantastic, I am going to make so many people play this.

I enjoy this, thank you. (I'm today's high score of Tetris 1, snake 3! Now back to work)

I got 3/3. I like it.

There is something liberating about games like Missile Command and Fortnite, where your most reasonable expectation is that you will fail. (Pinball is another example.) You can just focus on doing your best and playing the game, not meeting some standard of success other than "I didn't die as fast this time!"

I worked with a guy who described watch-two-different-things tasks like this as 'Marty Feldman eyes'. This is the most Marty Feldman Eyes thing I've ever seen

i hate this conceptually and i hate it in execution and i hate how it made my brain think "hey wait I think I figured out some strategy for oh no wait I'm fucking it up worse" about seven thousand times in twenty seconds before I closed the tab

Well, this is going in some cognitive scientist's repertoire.

I read the comments first and tried to imagine what this thing was. It was both better and worse than described.
