That'd be cool. they do get a little annoying after a while, even if you can just ignore them.

But awesome job man. I wish I had a game console, I'd be all over that...

Of course, who'd expect a flash game from the web to be a game on a console.

Wow, congratulations, Tom!

They did, however, say that the runner up was the SpongeBob Squarepants game... I'm left wondering how much of a gap there was... :P

Haha...I had the same reaction. It would have been quite an insult if SBSP won...

I really didn't like the game.....

Naa, jk. I play it almost everyday on NG before I hit BBS and start posting.

However, the game is very difficult.
I'm gonna get it on GC sometime soon, it should be a hell of a lot easier to play with a controller.

Congrats Tom.

When or are you going to create and release a sequal?
Maby you could create a sidekick for the "Yellow Guy". That would be c00l as hell.

Later, Evil Mind

does it bother you that all of these reviews/articles have been saying 6,000,000 downloads when by now it's at 8,365,185?

congrats
