Update: I think a lot of you are too quick to judge this game without finishing it. If you still hate it after you've seen the ending, then feel free to leave a nasty review.

Do you think there is an animal heaven?

Awesome

I found it to be hilarious actually, a good game all around. It' s sad that we live in a world where people would rather see other people be chainsawed and smashed into pieces and stuff than to simply punch an animal...I think the author had that in mind too ;) very nice very nice

The reason I love and hate this website...

I look at this game, and think wow it's pretty fucking well done, I examine the narrative of the game and can see thought went into it, it's subversive but there is a message to it.

The gameplay is simple and uncomplicated, it's easy to pick up, and reminds me of some of Tom Fulp's first games like "Last piece of cake"; and the "Assassin" series from newgrounds infancy.

The graphics are interesting, and complex for the pixel style of art chosen. Sometimes the animation seems off, but I can understand given the limitations of using the pixel style graphics. How was that effect achieved anyway? Was it photoshop created images imported into flash, or a special extension of the flash tools?

Perfect selection of music, and cheesy 16 bit sound effects...

The criticism you've received based on the content, is extremely ostentatious, since most of the people that have given you zero star ratings have extremely violent submissions like "Madness" in their favourites.

This is just a work of fiction, no animals were harmed in this submission, and if these morons knew where their food came from (meat eaters and vegans alike) they wouldn't be writing such stupid, smug, and pretentious comments.

In the game you never condone the actions of the characters, after the first night's "mercy killing", the player is given the choice to not continue killing animals, and if this path is chosen the game immediately ends. Isn't it funny how your critics avoid bringing that up? One needs to be complicit at the beginning for the game to progress to the point where you're killing innocent animals.

If one does decide to be complicit in killing animals, it ultimately leads to the games conclusion which depicts serious consequences as a direct result of the main character's actions.

There was also an attempt to flesh out the character's motivations, instead of presenting them as stereotypical "black and white" bad guys, something that media in this day and age is glossing over. It's easy to pander to the whims of popular opinion in order to appeal to a demographic, it's significantly harder to present something as multifaceted and risk getting chewed out by cads.

Anyway the game is surrealistic, and shouldn't have been taken as seriously as some people have taken it, fuck people the game is called "animal puncher" what do you expect?!

Does the game have flaws? Sure it does, the gameplay while fun isn't very deep, the game itself is dreadfully short, and the animation is rigid. In no way however does it deserve the score, and reviews it's received.

It's great that newgrounds allows you to host such content, my sincerest condolences go out to you for losing second place to the lacking "Karissa Sleeps", based purely on silly political reasons.

I wish you the best in your future game endeavours, and I hope the bullshit over this game doesn't deter you.

Thanks,

Okay then...

Well, for... erm originality, you get a 10, and also for a creative game idea... but this was really fucking weird if you ask me. I mean, I don't like beating up defensless furry animals... but I guess it can't be any worse than all of those no-storyline people shooting/killing games around the internet. But, the game itself was pretty simple and easy, to the point of boredom at some parts... so I'll give it an 8/10, and probably a 4/5.
