It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a party in Warka Flarka Flim Flam

It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a party in Warka Flarka Flim Flam

Warka Flarka Flim Flam is a game that does not have a soundtrack comprised solely of Waka Flocka Flame tracks, and that really bums me out. Other than that, Warka Flarka Flim Flam is okay. Warka Flarka Flim Flam is a videogame that was released last week on Steam; “the first of many collaborations” between the prolific Isaac “Cabbibo” Cohen and Mikael Emtinger. The game is being touted as a “Fast-paced Physical game for Vive,” but in reality, it’s so much more. (An arcade game.)

no Waka Flocka Flame to be found here

In the Waka Flocka Flame-less game, you wield two oblong paddles. The paddles are used to ricochet an opal-hued ball back and forth through iridescent hoops (think Pong but instead of competing against another paddle, you’re just juggling the ball lightly through hoops, while in a VR, pearlescent space). As you bounce the ball off your virtual paddle hands, you’re simultaneously evading evil opal balls that are hot on its tail. (So maybe not really like Pong at all.)


Failure in Warka Flarka Flim Flam is always imminent, but surprisingly encouraged. “Every mistake you make will be punished,” reads its Steam description. “Starting you over again and again on your Journey to become the #1 Warka of Flarkas!” I’m sure papa Waka Flocka Flame would be proud, even if a game goofing on his namesake contains none of his music.

Warka Flarka Flim Flam is available on Steam for $1.99, compatible with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. And you can follow Cabbibo on Twitter for future VR happenings and maybe a chuckle or two.
