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.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very fun

I think this was a pretty good game, it seemed really hard at first but once I got the hang of the attacks it was pretty easy. Contrary to what most people seem to be saying, I found the second boss to be very easy to beat; it's only got one attack and that attack is very easy to dodge. The whole game really came down to how well I could avoid that lazer attack... is that supposed to be the only attack that can hit you 4-5 times in a row?

So overall, fairly simple and rather short, but it gets high marks from me for the polish and the humor.

I love this game. I got to fab, then he died :(. Still awesome. Tom looks kinda good with a beard though, maybe if it was a short one it'd look better :D

Oh, very funny

I dig it. This game is pretty freaking sweet, and once you get the boss patterns down, it's flat out easy. For everyone crying about how hard it is, whenever you see the boss' head fly off the screen to the opposite side of the map, he's going to use his eye laser on the top of the screen. After he does this, he will always go to the bottom of the screen and pop off another one. To avoid it, jump to the top-most platform. For his beard attacks, try to stay away from him and don't combo yourself into one.

Now for the juicy bits. The tombstones. There are four in the map and they can raise your experience and be comboed. What does this mean? Cluster them together and WAIL on them. The maximum level knight is friggin' amazing.

No beard can stand against your might at maximum level. :D

Fun, too easy

If the boss had more random attacks it would be alot better. Just the same pattern over and over made this way too easy. Keep up the good work.
