Clarence's Big Chance is a silly game where you play as an ugly, middle-aged virgin who's finally managed to get a date for the first time in his life. He doesn't want to mess it up, but he also has to go through his daily routine!
So you need to jump around platforms in four large levels, collecting items in order to make a better impression on the girl at the end.
There are five endings; the one you get is determined by how many items you collect, and whether you say the right things during the date at the end!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Everything I want from a game, and then some...

Platforms, humour, retro gaming references, a mute button, longevity, collectibles and disappearing platforms and then some lovely twists, like the zombies and the NPCs with their individual dialogues.

I got 96%, i don't think i'll play again now for those final scraps, but I realyl thoroughly enjoyed the five or more hours I spent in this game which just kept opening up and getting bigger.

Thank you very much. This was exactly the game I have been looking for.

Great game!

Overall, an extremely well-done platformer, one of the best I've run into on newgrounds, really.

Graphically, it fits well with the 'platformer era' machines, and it fits in with sound quality as well. Control is good, hit detection is good, the challenge is just right (I can't think of any part that was impossible- but more than a few where I was yelling "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME" at the computer).

there's only a couple things i didn't like (and, yes, I know the first thing is me being stupid, bear with me) one was the 'date', at the end. Not sure why, since I knew going into the game that that's what was at the end.

second, the text-speak crap, during both the boss and options during the date part were... well, bad. With the boss it was kind of unexpected and funny, but when you're struggling to puzzle out what the hell a line of text says, well, it kind of ruins it in my opinion. During the date it was much worse, since a wrong selection there can change the ending.

Overall, though? very solidly a 9/10, probably a 9.5/10 really. The only things I didn't like aren't any flaw in the game, just my own personal preferences, and it's kind of stupid to take points off because I didn't like parts, especially with a game that's as good, overall, as this one.

Still going

I'm still playing, but the length of this game (thanks to the doors) kind of lower my liking for it. I want to see the end though, because it is a pretty funny storyline.

I try to make my games long because I personally prefer games to entertain me for at least a day rather than for just a lunch break or something.
Since a lot of Flash gamers seem to be the 'lunch break' kind, I'll keep this in mind for my future games and probably make them shorter.

Where the hell is that last tip??

Ì need help on something:
I collected all the tips except for one (the third from the top where apparantly it says what flowers she likes). I know it has to be in Clarence's house and I checked all rooms twice again but I just cant seem to find it -.-

The ones I have in this level:
- the one in Clarences room
- the one in the kitchen in the room with the 2 mice and the telly
- the one in the basement (if I remember correctly)

So please help :)

great game btw!

It's in the Living Room, in the bit where one of Clarence's fathers is having a row with three of his mothers over a roast chicken; you have to defeat the father, and you'll see that he was on top of the laptop.
