Frustrating but fine time killer

I would not recommend making it easier. Just keep it like that.

Zero margin of error makes for poor gameplay

I chipped in the $1 to own a piece of PC nostalgia only to be disappointed by the fact that you can’t really play. I understand the idea is a slim margin of error but this game has literally zero margin of error and a reflex requirement beyond that of most casual gamers. A simple settings menu to adjust the level of play would be nice. Otherwise is a hard pass...unless you love unplayably frustrating apps.

Don't give up! Tip: switch lane only when you're as near as possible to the donkey 😜

Donkeys come up too close.

Needs to be better written to allow player more time to move from lane to lane. Donkeys are too close.
