You're an elementary school bully that plays by his own damn rules. Use your bullying skills to cheat your way through 6th grade in an effort to avoid boarding school.

Straight Bullyism is a turn-based, character-building RPG influenced by Fallout 3, Pokemon, Animal Crossing and The World's Hardest Game. Also, think of SB as half-game and half-cartoon, because there's a ton of cutscenes. Also, it took me *3 DAMN YEARS* to make!

WARNING: SB is a multi-part game; after completing level 1 you will be prompted to open level 2 in a new window on StraightBullyism.com. This is because the game was far too large to fit into one file, and I wasn't aware earlier of any way of making that happen. Sorry if this is annoying, but it was either that or I left the game with just one level.

Apparently a bunch of people have gotten stuck at various loading screens. You can try clicking the "Reload" button once, and then open the "Trouble Loading" window. If you see a black square, close the Trouble Loading window and wait, your game should continue loading. This may not work, so if not I'm sorry. I definitely won't ever make a multi-part game again.

Also, there's a bug in level 1 which causes the game to freeze after you accept the second or third mission. I can't fix it. However, it's really rare and highly unlikely that you will encounter it, but if you do... sorry, you will have to refresh the page and start again.

Finally, some people have reported that the game doesn't work in Google Chrome but does work in other browsers, such as FireFox. Try FF if you are having troubles in Chrome.

Not really my type of game, but interesting none the less. The graphics are cool, and give a special impression of the surroundings. I think the music is bold and too repetitive, but that's just my opinion i guess. i also don't like that you have to avoid people in the corridor whenever you're going somewhere, as it proves difficult with such a large character. i also think its a bit lacking in content, but hey, who am i to jugde? Anyways, keep as it.

The quality was good. I loved the customization part in the beginning. I was very surprised when my character was in the cut scene. I also loved all the characters you fight, they all had something funny to say and the voices made it awesome. (I hear your mom's an alchoholic. Oh really?) Lots of creativity,

With that said though, I was disappointed with the actual game mechanics. Its cool that you've sort of invented your own genre, but it wasn't a genre that I liked. I wish there was more of a story line and that when I bumped into kids I wouldn't be forced to fight them. I like the idea of the cool meter and losing it if you didn't fight. But I wanted to pick my own fights. You know bump into a kid, have a meter pop up and ask the player. Would you like to fight this kid y/n.

I was also disappointed I never was able to do all the missions. Why did you choose to force final confrontation once I had all the homework? Why is it a punishment to get the home work quickly? Shouldn't I have time to prepare. It didn't make sense and I really only got to do one mission before I had all the homework. Don't you want the player to experience everything you worked on? I didn't understand this decision.

I also found it challenging to level my character accordingly. Going into this game blind Its hard to know what each stat will accomplish and once you're fighting guys there is no way to adjust. I know rpg grinding is normally tedious, I would like to have been able to improve my skills based on how many guys I defeated as opposed to how many levels I go through.

My final point being on the game itself. The whole game is walking around fighting for homework. You don't target anyone to "bully" you just fight, you even fight teachers. I would have liked a more rpg like game and that is why its hard to review this with that bias. But It should have been about those quests and building level, to become the most feared in the school, it felt more like an rpg/puzzle hybrid and the concept fell short, because I missed things, The three windows for the three parts was annoying, your creativity felt boring and tedious after a while of doing everything, and the stat leveling made combat frustrating and not fun.

I have taking programming courses, and I know how hard it can be. I decided it wasn't for me because I suck. You did an awesome job and there was a ton of creativity. But the actual gaming portion fell short for me. I wouldn't give up, I would just say to take all the criticism in stride and work with those criticisms in the back of your mind.

Considering this game is free, you did amazing and I hope you keep up the good work : )
