Hey guys, I’ve started work on a possible William and Sly 3. Follow me on facebook for updates!


This is probably my best game to date. I wanted to make something more accessible, as most of my flash games have been too complicated for my family to play. :3

I really hope you guys enjoy it, I think it's the most effort I've put in to anything. A big thanks to everyone who helped me test, and Tom and NG for the sponsorship!

As always, leave a comment! I love reading them.

EDIT: The game has version detection, but YOU NEED FLASH 10 to play it. If you have trouble loading the game, please send me a PM with the details.

EDIT: Because nearly everyone is saying they can't figure out the boss's pattern, I've made a slight change that should make it more obvious. Once the game update is approved I'll let you guys know and you can try again with the new pattern. *Alright it's up now*

If you're getting a black screen after the Newgrounds and Particlasm screens this applies to you. This might also help with the loading bar freezing. This was posted by a Kongregate user (thanks Knork):

"If the game does not load past the ads make sure that and are not being blocked in your hosts file. Which is located under C:\WINDOWS\system32\drive rs\etc
If they are, uncheck the "Read-only" attribute and edit out those two lines."

If this works for you let me know.

pretty good

beautiful art. i love foxes. just a bit too long. i want more to do. the only thing i have left is to get 13 more mushrooms and find out how to turn off the water (i beat the game once and it continues before u fight....but u know that)
would love to see a part 2

Nice, but..

It needs some improvements. The gameplay is too repetitive. Gather fairyflies, switch on a runestone, gather fairyflies, switch on a runestone... you have to do this twelve times. It gets boring that way. Not enough challenge either (it doesn't motivate you right away.) The map is a little too big for my liking, it goes on and on! The boss is too easy too. Once you look at a few walkthroughs you automatically know how to beat it because its attack pattern is too obvious. The ending didn't please me (all that for a nap! Seriously?) Plus, the game takes an incredibly long time to play.

Other than that, though, this game is fantastic. Sly's movement's are incredibly smooth and I like that. The music fits the atmosphere of this game well. The background graphics were just plain beautiful. This game was designed well. The storyline was good, but not exactly great, because it's quite basic. Not much action, but I now see it doesn't need that. Truth be told, being a fox was quite fun, because not many games feature being a fox! Overall, as an adventure game it's great!

9/10, though it can be boring at times, this is a great adventure game and I like it!

Beautifully done game

I really thought this was a neat game. I actually wish it went on a little more. I found the world to be fun to explore and the sound and music a nice touch. My only real problem was that last boss. MAN, what an asshole he was to fight.
