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.

Honest mark.

My memory is not that great to rember all the holes and nooks and crannys, would have been nice if a drawn path was made following the explored areas so I know where I was and been and maybe revisit those areas again as well. In addition that the chest would be marked on the map following their discovery, and maybe a color indication wether I opened them or not. Just too many boxes to try to remember and not worth bother traveling all the way back to explore and area I dont remember and already have been.
The ending boss was a bit challenging, I do enjoy the fact that no harm comes to you hero, so stress is less of a factor and you can enjoy the exploration of the game.

Controls were great. I like the option that you can use either the WSDA or the Arrow keys (for left or right handed players). Graphics were great and the controls were fluid and reacted when I wanted them to, not like some platforms that delayed in control because you have to wait for the character to finish it's programed move. The music was mellow and the storm ambience was perftect. The finish was cool but anti-climatic, was expecting something bit more, or a short cinimatic ending.

Over all, programer/inventor/author/storyteller (how ever you wish to label your self or all of the above) great platform, I enjoyed it.

I have to agree with some of the others. Whilst the game itself has good graphics, a nice theme and an excellent amount of effort put into it, it's not the most fun thing in the world...
The gameplay is incredably basic and for that reason quickly becomes tedious and unchallenging. I liked the smooth movement of the fox and falling from great heights, but this was perhaps the highlight when compared to the game itself. It's not a bad game, in fact for a child's game it's very well made. However, it is certainly not "outstanding" and I feel there are far better games on this site. You should be very proud of it though and I admit I'm definitely being biased because of its massive score. Well done though.

Rated 3 / 5 stars


not gana lie i got bored in about 5 minutes...but by then i was already half way done the game and i was like me already got 8 might as well go for the end...but i have to say...i HATED that end boss and this game...theirs absolutely no way to loss (unless u get bored and quit...) but i mean a brain dead chimp could beat this...all u do is run around and run into Fairy stuff...and then into the magical ruin stone so that your LAZY owner (and even more emphasis on LAZY) can just telly port to the end of the place...and that end boss made me cry really...i mean there was no challenge it was just annoying...i would get to 5 and right as i touched the stolen the snake came up to me and was like "foxxie u best be giving me them fairy sparkles or imam gana have to beat u up!" i mean really?? i anyone but a little kid gana find this game to be able to hold them over for 3 seconds? and even then little kids will get bored of the jumping as thats really all this game has to offer...well except a strong urge to make me go and collect mushrooms to throw at ppl for good fun...

6/10 3/5
10 good animation good smooth running game...
-1 for how fast i was bored of it
-1 for how fast the game was to beat
-1 no challenge what so ever...
-1 for having such a lazy person be my owner in this game...and that snake boss....but i will be nice and count them both as .5s :P

p.s. i think part of me died while playing this game...the fun loving part... *sniff* i will miss that side of me always... now all that remains is my evil (woo evil :D) and sad (this is a SMALL (ironic emphasis on the world SMALL) part of the remainder)
