Thanks for the nomination for the 2008 Tank Award!

This game is all about Tom Fulp's commitment to not shave his face until his next console game, Castle Crashers, is completed. It's a ridiculously over-the-top arcade boss battle that is well worth your time. We hope you enjoy it and discover the secret character!

Did we mention that Tom himself voice-acted his role in this game?

Arrows to move
"A" button for attacks
Hold "A" to charge a special attack

"P" to pause
"M" to toggle bg music on and off

Thanks to Luis for really nailing the Castle Crasher sprites and bringing new flavor to them with his NG-themed weapons.

Thanks to Coaly who brought "The Beard" to life.

Thanks to The Swain who was kind enough to throw in a few voice clips too.

Shout out to myself for coding , doing the bg art, menus, and sounds.

Special thanks to Tom for supporting this adventure and inspiring all us flash artists to create stuff we love.

Excerpt from PM to Tom Fulp:
Tom, my boy; are you ever going to remove this awful beard? Really, I don't care about Castle Crashers, but I do care about your horrible beard that makes some of my soul die every time I see it. Also, I imagine Encyclopedia Dramatica is going to have a field day of the lulz in making fun of your beard. Really, shave the beard, or else we fans of yours at Newgrounds will be forced to. I mean, seriously, why did you even grow the beard? Did you have a lobotomy? Did your wife trade you growing a beard for use of practicing kama sutra? Did Wade take over your mind in an attempt to make you into twin brothers so he could then pass you off as Wade, and then he become Tom, thus become the man who runs Newgrounds (I hope and pray the That's My Fulp series does an episode about that idea)? Please respond for the sake of newgroundskind!

Actual review of game:
Thank god someone has a brain around here. That damn beard is goin down!
