OH NO! That fat kid is drowning in the pool! I guess Lifeguard Larry had better save him or at least get his corpse out of the pool or something.

In this game you have one minute to take action. Your actions can all lead to different outcomes in this fast and fun, humor game.

Commentary:
OK. so after talking to several people and taking into account all the complaints that people had about the text based controls of the original version I have made this version to be more approachable for the average user.

I also added another medal to the mix can you find out how to get it?

Nicely done.

It reminds me of the absurd humor in Sam and Max... and Lucasarts adventures in general. I kind of miss those games.

:) Why do you think I made this? I miss those kind of games too. Sam and Max Hit the Road is a great game but I like Day of the Tentacle a bit more personally.

Funny little game

This was a funny little point & click adventure game you made,it had limited ways of exploring so it didn't take long to find out all ten endings though all of them were funny and had witty messages at the end,the animation looked great and overall i think you did a nice job on this funny game of yours,keep up the great work.

Was really good

I like short and "simple" p'n'c games like this. My only problem is that when I get the jetski working, the game ends up going blank (well... white with a "!" in a circle in the middle).

Wow... Um check your flash player version I guess?

Simple at least

I thought the graphics in this were really good. The only problem is that with a point and click adventure game as short as this, it is hard for me to advance that far. I can still appreciate this for having the failing medal being a good 10 points! The controls were at least pretty easy to use, especially considering you had so little to work with. I keep trying to put the coin in the slot, but when I hit "use" or whatever, nothing seems to work. This was made with good intentions and is definitley nice enough to have medals here on this site.

To use an item you have to click on it in your inventory. If you try to use the coin slot without actually choosing the coin it won't work.

I can't really make it work with just use either because you should be able to use all the items in your inventory on any object not just the one that works.

Still I'm glad you liked the game and it is really short and I think that is actually a good thing because it's important to leave the audience wanting more.

I will be making more games like this in the future. I have several projects in my pot right now that I need to finish first, but you can count on more like this eventually.
