What Does This Button Do is a chaotic shoot em up where the answer to "What are the Controls?" is Yes.

Once you hit play you'll find almost every letter on your keyboard has been randomly mapped to some kind of ability, and with enemies approaching, you'd better figure out what those abilities are pretty quick! 

Every ability you have is randomly re-assigned a new key each game, so you'll be learning your abilities as you shoot, blast, and Giant-Laser-beam your way through the waves of enemies that are coming at you from all directions.

Apologies to anyone with a non-QWERTY Keyboard, I planned to add better support but simply ran out of time.
