Read to the bottom of this section, after you've beaten the game, for the ending of the story!

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

Thanks for all the good reviews, everyone :)

I finally got around to fixing the hint button bug, so enjoy =). This was originally supposed to be 5 levels but i got bored with the immense amount of frames I had to hand draw.

*SPOILER!*
The ending.

McScribbles and Stickman lived together on the Pages for a while until the Artist, in his not-so-infinite wisdom, decided to drawn a Stickgirl. There was a competition over her, Mcscribbles was rejected, and Stickman got the girl.

Some time later, as Stickman and Stickgirl were having a picnic near a steep drop-off, McScribbles showed up and confronted Stickman. There was a fight and as the guys fought, they neared the edge of the cliff. Stickgirl tried to stop them from unwittingly killing themselves and was accidentally knocked over the edge. McScribbles followed a moment after. Though Mscribbles managed to grab an outcropping of rock, Stickgirl was not so fortunate, and fell to her death. The Artist, seeing all that had taken place, tore the cliff away, with McScribbles still dangling from it, leaving Stickman staring off into the void where once there was paper.

The Artist discarded the scrap of paper with McScribbles on it into the trash, and he was left there for ages, alone. He grew to hate the Artist, and began to form a plan for revenge against both him and Stickman. Using other scraps of paper, McScribbles built a machine. A great hypnosis wheel, powered by all the discarded ideas. After that, it was a simple matter to get the Artist to look into the trash can, and he was under the control of McScribbles.

After Stickman escapes from Ninjack, he falls down a long shaft and onto the hypnosis machine. McScribbles sits on a drawn throne, laughing. The mad illustration tells Stickman how he accomplished all of this, and moves to have the artist erase Stickman once and for all. Stickman, however, has one more trick up his sleeve, and in a last ditch effort, has McScribbles erased instead.

There is silence until the ninja reappears, having seen and heard everything. He apologizes and and leaves, to roam the Pages in search of a new purpose. Stickman is alone for a long time, sitting in that empty chamber. It seems the story is over, when suddenly a new drawing is begun near Stickman. It is Stickgirl!

Happy ending, and so forth.

Brilliant style.

I like the fact that you've given people a hints page in case they're really stuck.

After having to resort to that for the first 2 levels, I found myself able to do level 3 a bit more easily. Maybe I just needed to get into your fram of thinking.

The style is really good - it succeeds in doing exactly what you set out to do.

Maybe you could incorporate the hints into the game? Have a variable for each puzzle or something, which is increased each time you make fail it, and set to 0 if you get it right. If it gets above a certain number (3?) then you could display the first hint... if it gets a bit higher you could display the 2nd hint and so on.

I really like the scribbles and the way the stuff is drawn in front of you.

Apart from that, I can only suggest adding more levels.

Oh, did I mention the fact that I like your style?

Nice style

I wonder where you got the idea for the notebook paper. well done though


Archaos responds:

Well if you are implying that I took the scribbles on notebook paper style from you, I could just as easily say that you got it from the Scrap Book series on NG as it was here long before Squigo. I was actually inspired to do this because when I was a kid I used to fill notebooks with cartoons like the ones in my game. I appreciate your high marks and do in fact like squigo alot.=)
