UPDATE: Mochi has gone out of business recently and taken down their version control servers, breaking the previous version of World 3. I was finally able to upload a new version today, so if the game wasn't loading for you earlier, it should now. Apologies that took so long, and please enjoy!

There just aren't enough pants in platformers these days.

Its amazing how this game evolved, from a simple plataform game without a story, to a fancy colorful world. The gameplay is very good, and its very rewarding when you manage to chain jumps, slides and wall-runs/jumps, the pencil combos are really well done, altought some are really difficult to use (like that horizontal spin attack). (my favorite attack was the air vertical spin, in the ship level i managed to beat 5 ninjas with only one spin!).
The story is simple and silly, with a fun humor and various things around the levels, the level design was really interesting, and full of places to go, altought there were certain places that were really hard to reach.

I hope to see the world 4 someday! keep up the good work!

This game is... outdated. I remember sitting in the library in 7th and 8th grade and playing the first two. They were fun. But I think that the audience of nostalgic players are too mature for this game to be good on a substantial level. Let me state some more objective things about the game first though.

The mechanics of this game are simple and rather flawless, with good tight controls. The music in each world is catchy and fun and lighthearted, fitting the game it is for. The art style is on par with the rest of the serious, not being either good or bad, but consistent and well done. The dialogue is fun and humorous for the young and the young-at-heart. The gameplay isn't too difficult, but poses enough challenge for all players, new and old alike. The boss is a challenge, but not too difficult where it would seem impossible and unfun.

Now more of an opinionated review. The controls were good, but sometimes felt a bit slow for me, though maybe it was just the physics of the game having a relatively low max speed. The music was pretty catchy, but when trying to collect everything in each level, it just droned on and on. The dialogue was painful to read through, being both far too childish and strangely paced, being that the thought bubbles required a command to get through as well as changing over time, and sometimes were skipped entirely if you weren't careful. The game itself was easy, but it felt too slow because trying to gather all the squiggles and stars took twice as much time as getting through just the story itself.

I hope this was constructive, destructive criticism isn't really useful, now, is it? I just felt, through the whole game, that the only reason I was playing it was that I had to because I finished the older ones. I played it only for a hope at nostalgic fun, which was rather poorly received. I'm sure, however, that a newer generation would enjoy this much more than I did. That isn't to say it was fun, it just wasn't for me.

Sitting there watching the king ramble made the entire game worth playing.

An amazing experience, really!

The music is great and fits well with the game (and reminds me of Croc 2 , for some reasons).
The level design is pretty good, but I found it a little repetitive near the end (never boring, just a little predictable).
The story is silly and enjoyable.
What really made me enjoy this game is the gameplay: it's incredibly fluid!
Moving, flipping and fighting with the pencil are lots of fun!
The incredibly smooth animations make the gameplay even more appealing, that stick figure shure looks damn fancy!

Over all: one big, fun platformer, with one of the best gameplays I've ever seen in a flash game!

Just one more thing: the first time I encountered the big pile of enemies in the pirate's cave (which was meant to force me find the pencil) I managed to pass over it by using the spring and the wall jumping (with the help of the boost gave me by the spring), then I found myself in the pirate's ship, unable to fight the enemies and pretty confused too.
Don't know if this is meant to be like this, just pointing out!
