I want to thank EVERY SINGLE PERSON who emailed me supporting Bob from the day he was released unto the world early 2005, right up until the release of this remake; also not forgetting those who've played, commented and voted for it here on NG. You're the reason this game exists, so give yourselves a pat on the back!

I hope you all enjoy playing the game as much as I enjoyed (re)making it, and be sure to comment and let me know what you think! I do try to reply to everyone who posts a coherent comment.

Also, if you liked the game and think it's worth a buck or two, please go ahead and click on the 'Donate' link in the title menu, or the advertisement in the preloader, and help feed a starving indie game designer :D



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good game.

However I found that during the boss fight on the castle rooftops the game slows down and freezes. Falling off the map also happens here.

Skribble-Style responds:

Im looking in to an option that will automatically set your quality based on your frame rate; this will also remove the rain from the final battle.

Also, I will have a look for what might be causing that falling off the map business.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Its great but I do keep getting thrown off just like other people!

Skribble-Style responds:

Man that is so strange! I've been looking for a while now and can't seem to find the culprit of this bug. Im thinking maybe it's Bobs movement speed, but Im still looking in to it. It's hard tofix a bug that you aren't even able to replicate, but I'm doing my best!
