When we heard that The Criminal Duder was having trouble finding a job, Luis and I thought we could help out with a Boss Rush type game. All ad revenue goes to theCriminalDuder. We're pullin' for ya man!

An honest review

OK guys, sorry, but this game does not deserve the amount of praise it's getting.
First of all, the point of the game: to raise money for the criminal duder. Good cause, I'm a big fan of his work. But when it gets to the actual game, the experience is tedious, annoying, and just plain not fun.

First of all, whose idea was it to make it possible to only earn 10 gems per run? I ended up simply killing myself after collecting all 10 just to get to the upgrade screen faster. This system made me want to go out and punch a small child in the face, I was so frustrated. I only bothered to try this game out because of the valuable medals, but i like having A FIGHTING CHANCE to earn them!
This game's boss was incredibly and ridiculously overpowered, and, although I enjoy a stiff challenge (portal defenders is my second favorite game on newgrouds) i DON'T enjoy the feeling of wanting to tear my laptop in half after being forced to farm gems for 20 minutes straight just to buy one upgrade!

*deep breathing* BoMToons, Luis, I love most, if not all of the work you put on this site, but you have dissapointed me to the EXTREME with this badly-planned, eyeball infested, hillbilly HORSE SHIT!

On a last note, I cannot BELIVE the impudence of the Newgrounds Review Crew for giving this game all these 9s and 10s. Did you even PLAY the game? Jesus H. Christ, did you just give the game a 9 because BoMToons made it?! I was tempted to. Then I played the game. And got angry.

Sorry guys, just saying my honest opinion. Thank you for listening, and i hope you do better next game.


BoMToons responds:

You didn't follow the instructions...

if you uncover the boss brain (and hit it), you get a deluge of gems, that's most of the fun in this you get more powerful, your objective changes from exploiting the boss' tendency to puke gems when his brain is tickled to actually defeating his eyeballs.

I'd suggest you give it another try because you missed the "fun" part of this game. Many people have enjoyed it because they followed that instruction screen and went after the secondary objective :)

good concept BUUUT

often durring the impacts my controls lock up and stick causing me to get stuck walking or climbing in that direction until i press the key that locked up. F**king annoying when you see the fireball and walk blindly into it.e

that's an internet explorer bug, there's a real easy fix if you google it, or use a diff browser.

Nothing New

Just another collect and upgrade game, the only fun part is getting the no-upgrades medal for those die hard medal seekers.
Also, sometimes when I jump down, I can't see the Duder because of the low contrast between him and the background.
Might have been more interesting if it had more levels and more dynamic enemies.
