Good concept but needs work

Puns were great, story less so but it made for a fun game idea, however...

- Given, I didn't bother finishing the boss, but TOO EASY? Generally you can just run through the levels (not fighting anything but the werewolves and, where necessary, the stomach-pumpers)...
- It took me until the carpet levels to die, and which point it was a downer to find out I went right back to bone. This is a SUDDEN droop for one death (especially with the stomach-pumpers waiting to stun me above a drop at which point I plummet; sigh). It would have been nicer if you'd just dropped levels of flesh until you were just bones (maybe even just a skull)? That way the health relies on eating flesh, which ties in better with the plot in some ways.
- Why only werewolves? Was Boner on a diet to keep his slim figure? I wanted to eat the stomach-pumpers!
- The rampart level platforms were too hard to see
- At many points I couldn't see the ground at all (especially annoying since the drops were sudden death)
- End boss was a pain (mostly because I died and that means trying it from skeleton instead of full-health MEATY)
- The ZOOM-IN-"YOUATEMEAT" thing was fun at first; by the later levels and boss? Rather got in the way.

Still, everyone loves a meaty boner! The enemy-concepts were BRILLIANT, loved the backwards skeleton, and the stomach-pumpers reminded me very much of Splatterhouse!

Speaking of Splatterhouse; the "complete a room before going on" concept might have worked well with this. Forced people to beat the enemies instead of skipping (well, jumping) over them.

Would love to see more.

Castlevania nostalgia...

It reminds us of the Castlevania games with its flair and all,but for this attempt the game comes really short and repetitive. There is no exploration to secret rooms whatsoever as the platforms in mid-air are suggesting and all stages seem like unto another.

The graphics are great,it reminds me of the very top of elite flash games which are unforgettable once played,and it especially reminds me of the flash game 'Batman- The cablebot caper' which has similar attack moves and [even more important!] with similar solid and smooth attacks and controls. This is the greates plus this game has.

For a 3 day work,the game accomplishes really great,just the sense of humor doesn't fall into my category of genious humor. With the majority of newgrounds members being psychopats and perverted people,you have high chances to succeed with this type of humor in the future,but there will be people once in a while like me who will simply discard such jokes as simply ''lame'' and nothing else.

The game's fun lasted for me until I got into the storey with pictures of Mr. Bean and many other questionable ''nobilities'',since from that on I had to play with my beginning status and low power after falling into a gap thanks to this ugly bitch monster which causes stun on you even when you are high above in mid-air. This killed the whole fun and even substance which you need for in order to play a game. It became utterly boring and pointless from this moment on.

Even though not playing through the entire game,I can just about imagine the epicness of the end boss from just looking at the locked medal...

All in all very good to a certain degree,but definitely not an award-winning game [although you got the 4th place award,congrats to that btw ^~^']. Even for 3 days the game's potential could have been better driven out and revealed,but yeah.

Good luck for the future...and you could really use this Batman game i mentioned as an inspiration for a similar platform/action/fighting game!! ;)
