And the amount of people who are active daily is probably pretty close to that 0.1% of the ±1.8 million accounts. In other words I think a lot of the regular users actually prefer the older lay-out =/

I know, even a new user might prefer it. If all old users would have been PM'd with instructions on how to toggle to the old layout, and maybe stuff in the faq that new users could browse for information, that would greatly have altered that little 0.1 percentage. Until then, I can always browse the medal game pages not logged in using IE, and then use the old layout here in BurningFurry and just browse my profile until all medals are achieved.

Agreed.TBH, l found it pretty easy as soon as l got the hang of it..although the zombie level is a bit RAEG-inducing..but yeah, Portal Defenders strategies work well here...

I cleared this game with ease. But I can't even beat the duo on portal defenders.

I don't know what drugs you are not, but I'd like some.

The only thing glass fish has in common with that masterpiece of a game is that the camera forces you to progress. I spent DAYS playing that game to get the achievements (And i'm still missing a few). Great game and I hope it gets medals here because I would love to play it again.

Also, out of curiosity, does anybody here play at omgpop? I recently found this website and its pretty cool for online multiplayer games. They have like a mario kart remake and bomberman and ddr and stuff. If so, send me an add :)

Listen, on glass fish it was a pixel game where you dodged thing. On that game, it's a pixel game where you collect things. I am under the impression that you are already on the drugs I am taking, because what you typed seems to be correcting me in some way, when I was merely sticking up for the game in the first place.

Someone asked why it had no medals. Someone else said "because they had to have SOME standards". By they, I assume he is meaning NG. Meaning that it wasn't good enough for medals. I then stated that it wasn't much different (aesthetically) than Glass Fish.

Next time I will try to be more clear.

I find it hard to believe English is your second language seeing as you can use the word aesthetically correctly, so i'm going to call you an idiot for writing that first sentence in the quote :)

Second, by your comparison logic, I could say halo is "not much different" than tower of greed because it is a game where you run and dodge things. And in halo, you run and shoot things. See why changing the verb doesn't mean the games are similar?

And last, if you are ESL, I apologize haha.

Yea but that's exactly why I said that. They have to have some standards at some point, whatever the reason is for that game not having medals (probably no effort on the part of the author to instill the medals) I'm glad they actually set their foot down once in a while, even if they don't when a lot of times they should.

You seriously missed out back when you got gold for placing in the top three spots. You also missed out on blockles back when it used to be tetris. I can't rack up as much gold as before.

I would really compare hit machine to FFR, although I guess music-based rhythm games in general work. You might have fun with the "Draw My Thing" game. While chatting, the censors are turned off and you can write whatever. I'm not sure if they're still up, but they've also had some words like that as actual things to draw. It would be interesting if the medals they offer on that site could be achieved and put on this site as well. It would mean easier points for me, haha.

Someone asked why this game didn't have medals yet. Someone then said that newgrounds has standards. Since the person who typed that probably never played the game, they were going by the graphics of the game. I then said that it was similar (in look) to glass fish. I never posted those two words, so I can see where you became confused. And since glass fish got medals, this can have medals.

You then misinterpret what I type. You then proceed to tell me what's what, when I was sticking up for the game in the first place.

Now, in my second post I said they were similar to further try to explain to you that I was in fact sticking up for the game. Probably because I had just woke up or was just about to go to bed. I didn't really need to post that. It wasn't even part of my original thought. But considering the posts are two hours apart, maybe I figured that backing up my argument with some facts wouldn't be that bad of a thing since you kind of called me out by thinking I meant something I didn't.

And they are similar in several ways. They are also different in several way. If you find them so much apart, that is your personal opinion. And I don't care, because that was never the original topic on hand. My original post was about them not looking too far apart.

The topic at hand, which was what I posted to, was only there to say the game was good enough for medals. In which you then changed it on me because you thought I meant something I didn't.

Anyway, when I am tired I type sentences that don't actually seem to be good sentences. Although, they are usually grammatically correct. My keyboard also tends to miss some of my keystrokes from time to time because my Firefox and computer are both so horribly slow.

I have went in circles a few times in this post in hopes that you will now fully understand everything.

I completely forgot to add, what does that have to do with anything? English isn't my first language either.

Now if you want to keep arguing about this, keep it to fucking pm messages and shut up.

I played the zombie level with the spear,as it has a great blasting range

You have to jump a lot to dodge attacks and try to take down the range enemies first.
Always use your supa attack at any time as possible so you can easily blast the enemies to bits.

For the boss,just watch out for the wave attacks and the movement of his arms when he's bout to bash you. Just whack him a few times (2-3) when you're close and move away to dodge the wave/bashing.

If you want,go use the crowbar for it's great lighting ability

I used the crowbar in the zombie level to get the medal, I attacked groups of enemies and I instantly used the special attack when I could use it

*clears throat*
There are some games 5 times as bad (if TOG is indeed to be considered "bad"-which, IMO, is not) as TOG, but they still had medals from day 1.
I think that it's a matter of approval, but not of quality testing..you know what l mean.
Probably PG or Tom just never replied, or there are some technical issues...but the game's quality has nothing to do with it....

Tom never replied when I asked for medals for The Kitten Game, so it could just be that.
He probably just missed the PM, and the author felt rejected and gave up.
Have you guys tried PMing the author?

I agree. Medals for that are not hard at all. Though, for some reason, in page runs alot slower, but if I do classic, just fine. But hell, thats not a problem anyway. Just my cheap 500 dollar 6 year old walmart computer.
