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?

CONTROLS:
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.

Man this is a classic. Haven't played this game since I was 15. That was 8 years ago. What a challenging game but as expected playing versus a Giant head of THE TOM FULP.

Great production value and despite being a 2D Brawler type game actual tactics and practice are required to beat this guy. I Guarantee virtually nobody can beat this boss in their first two tries. Very fun and nostalgic. The Leveling as you attack combined with rewarding consecutive attacks makes it a blast to play

Eight years! It's been eight years since I first played this game. And today, for the first time, I have successfully beaten the beard.
