** Day 2: The screen violently shakes, making it hard to gauge jumps onto arrows.
** Day 3: The screen is closely zoomed-in to obscure much of Burt's incoming obstacles.
** Day 4: The screen is turned upside down, which has the side effect of reversing your controls.
** Day 5: The screen sways from left to right, which speeds up and slows down both the game and your inputs. [[spoiler: There is also a point where the game becomes miniaturized, with static filling the screen as you go from right to left.]]
** Day 6: The screen fills with static whenever Burt moves. Jumping becomes ''even harder'' here, as you move so much when you jump that the static persists for a second or longer.
** Day 7: The four corners of the screen are shuffled around, making Burt's play areas much smaller as a result.
** Day 8: The screen is stretched and squished every second, which also changes the speed every time.
** Day 9: The two halves of the screen shakily move up and down at a fast rate.
** Day 10: [[FinalExamFinale Every above modification appearing in different screens]].

** The fourth day has the song play [[RewindGag backwards]].
** The fifth day's song speeds up and slows down in rhythm with the screen swaying. [[spoiler:[[FissionMailed Until it stops]].]]
** The sixth day's song is muffled, and cuts out whenever the screen fills with static.
** The seventh day's song has it's rhythm completely screwed with, playing every few beats in a random order.
** The eight day's song changes in tempo whenever the screen changes.
** The ninth day's song is both sped up and muffled. [[spoiler: The song that plays during Burt's lucid moment is [[AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent completely different]], being a soft ambient track.]]

* UnreliableNarrator: The 'doctor' voice is clearly at least partially in the mind of Burt. Perhaps it all started innocently as an experimental treatment, but he wasn't able to fully articulate the side effects, due to his own perceptions being so blatantly skewed and twisted. It's a keen reminder that we take the reality and accuracy of our own perceptions and memories for granted, when they're so easily altered.
