Old School Genius

This does remind me of those games of old that were bleedin impossible, until you realised that the bosses routines could be avoided with the right timing.

It reminded me of old bosses of Sonic games, and also, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for the NES, most though. My desk used to have teeth marks because of those games :-P.

Just need to get the half health medal now! :D

Literary paradox win!

At first I thought the game was ridiculously difficult but as they say, "third time's the charm." On my third attempt I got into the rhythm of the game and got the whale to half health with most of my health still intact. Eventually I slipped up though and got dropped to half health by a barrage of water drops, water vacuum, and spiked platforms.

Anyways, the game does require patience and a basic knowledge of platforming and cue recognition. To those who think this game is difficult, I say, go play Ninja Gaiden on the NES, then you can complain.

Great game here, keep up the good work.

The Z and X buttons do not work

Though I can tell this is a good game the jump and attack do not work.

these comments make me sad.

simply because you won the award tons of people flocked to this game. most of these kids grew up with there call of duty. this game is great. and i found that not being 13 years old really helped me to beat this game.

i feel extra bad that your rating is partly due to the hardness and the slow jumping speeds rather then the quality and the challenge of the game.

Not bad at all

looked at the rating and i was like"ah crap,better try it anyway".
I found i really enjoyed.a game where I don't have to spam space bar or"press this button to attack game" to beat the game.
People;its called fight mechanics.Maybe one boss flash games can be at lest difficult.
I found this game really fun.maybe because im way to used to playing games with fight mechanics in them :l.
