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 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.

Seems pretty cool, but the first boss never finishes loading :\ It gets stuck at 69%

But then when you start out it wouldn't know what attributes and items you have, so that's why it opens in a new window, because it transfers over your info.

I like this game. It's original and has a pretty nice art style. The voices all sound alike if you ask me, though. Even girls have a man-voice which is kinda lame.

Unfortunately, while loading the first boss, the game froze. I don't know whether my internet connection had a temp breakdown or it's just the game, but it wouldn't continue to load at all anymore. It wouldn't have been such a problem if I had saved recently, but because you can only save in the toilets and it costs $4, I didn't. Which sucks because now I have to start all over again.

Another small point of critique is the way you handled the collision detection; all the tables have large margins around them which stops the bully from walking (while he doesn't actually hit the tables). I suppose this is because the tables aren't rectangular but their images are? Maybe this can be avoided by importing the tables directly into Flash as vector images/paths? Just a thought.
