Whether it’s fishing in the space station’s park or power washing an alien’s teeth, the gameplay engages and encourages autistic players at every stage without fear of a fail state. Will you be able to gather all the groobs before Mister Norp discovers they’ve escaped? Only you can restore peace and prepare the galaxy’s greatest snack!
