There's a lot to say about this game so I'll categorize it for you :)

some people have come across a 'black screen' at certain points in the game. at the moment the only conclusions we have is update your flash player, refresh/restart and try again. please don't vote it down because of small issues. :)

the bosses might be very hard for some people, please keep in mind that's a GOOD thing, lol, if you cant figure out how to kill them (boss 2 and 3 can be frustrating) please understand, there's unique strategies to kill each boss, and once you figure it out, it's easy :) just think outside of the box!

Entails 4 acts, 13 epic levels, 4 bosses, hundreds of weapons, enemies, traps and hidden goodies!

sorry it's so big, we did HEAPS of optimizing and 18 megs is as low as we can get it!

ALL audio and in game controls are customizable, in both the main menu and in game menu, under the settings button.

I can not begin to describe the amount of hard work that has gone into this game, in every aspect, a team I'm SO grateful to have had the honor of working with. Please show them your support, they really are brilliant. HUGE work days, not to mention the work loads!

All i can say is I REALLY hope you guys enjoy this! I know I need to do more episodes (and I will!), but I have done everything in my power to make this the most exciting, entertaining, story driven adventure i possibly could!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Worth the waiting time!

This was really epic =D I had so much fun playing this for so much reasons!
I loved all the nerd humor in the game and the randomness at some points.
Nice animation and the opening was already as epic as hell!
The music gave it the great little feeling of this epic story and was well chosen and made! The fighting system is nothing totally new, but for some reason it was still so much fun to just use some diff combinations of jumps and throwing attacks =D

I really have to say this is one of the best i've played on newgrounds!


-gets laggy for me even on lowest graphics (too bad i have to play with them, looked so awesome with high =D)

Great job on this, keep up the good work and the very nice ideas =)

2nd Boss

I really like this game but once you get to the 2nd boss he doesn't throw enough arrows at you for you to throw at his beast. I lasted about 10 minutes using the power ups but I gave up after he wasn't giving me any weapons to throw at the beast.

I keep starting from the beginning of the level every time I die...

Well played.

The will hopefully sweep this week as it deserves to. It was clean and smooth and playing it on my stupidly fast computer on high quality had no problems obviously, made me a bit snarky while playing, but who cares right?

It was graphically beautiful, for a game it's one of the top quality that newgrounds has, only thing i'd say is that only the town had the peripheral random occurrences that i had hoped would be part of the entire game, (birds flying through the forest, gnomes mining in the background or something) but it sadly was not. Laziness that seems to have just been time spent on making sure the game ran smoothly.

As for the bosses, only edit i'd say is to make the boar guy get damaged more, by that time you probably only have a 17 or so damaging weapon, and still The Freak (or whatever he was) died faster to hands only than the boar dude did to the 17 attack weapon i juggled with the spears.

Regardless, since everyone will be looking for the long review with tips, i'll be the newest one.


Boss 2:
Strat is simple
1) be on the OTHER side by a long shot of where he's charging, stay up top.
screen start shaking for his charge, head towards him and down, this will ensure a spear is thrown at you and it will miss if you hold toward/down.
2) pick up the spear, wait for the boar to be in sight, then throw it at him and it will stun him, with a slow weapon you get in about 4 attacks, with a fast weapon (since you'll likely only have your fists) wait for the feet of the boar to start coming down and when they're about 45ยบ from the ground and seemingly about to stop for a split second move up and jump or he'll hurt you as much as if he'd have hit you.
3) if you do get hit, the bushes on either side drop health every 6th hit, watch out though since he may charge you in that time, don't get greed with the hits on the bush, the battle lasts a long fucking time.

Boss 3:
Really simple, really REALLY simple.
1) wait for fruit to be thrown at you, spam pickup
2) throw it at the dude, he'll eat and you whack at him
3) when he jumps, go to the other side
4) when he charges, sprint long jump over him
5) that's it, do that until he dies
6) if you ever get hit spam the rage button and make him jump again, you'll have a chance to dodge it that time, you can only do this once per battle

Boss 4:
1) the room before him doesn't get shut off, if you loose health, go in it, the boss retreats and stays in his room while you restore health.
2) dodge an attack THEN go in to attack, don't force attacks, he'll win.
3) take advantage of rage and infinite health upgrades every time and just whack at him the entire time. He. Takes. A. Lot. Of. Hits.
4) be patient, if you get close and he does the thing where he jumps and you're too close, it's a 1 shot.
6) enjoy the ending :)
