***UPDATE***: Fixed end roar bug and flip freeze bug
***UPDATE***: Dragable words now do not snap to the first letter!

You will probably die a few times. When dying, please do not leave a mess.

SECRET LEVELS ARE VERY DIFFICULT.
TARGET TIMES ARE VERY DIFFICULT.
You may want to wait until your second playthrough before subjecting yourself to their abuses. (Hit ESC to exit a secret level and go back to the level select)

This game uses the mouse and the keyboard. I recommend using a mouse as opposed to a touchpad or nub, especially if you're going for target times (which you are, of course).

You may, during the course of playing Uirdz, find yourself having fun. If so, please continue to play Uirdz and tell one person you love and one person you hate about it.

I die in the "Gimme a break" level :'( I want the secret level!!!! I'ts a very addictive game ;)


paste42 responds:

There's a level later on where you can unlock that passage again (although it's very hard). The next time you try the GIMME A BREAK level, keep in mind there is a small trick you can do to pass through it without just trying to do a plain jump (you might want to experiment before you try to unlock it).

Great game, it reminds me of Super Meat Boy for its gameplay but you added a good twist with the words, wich makes you think as you move in the level. The final boss could be more creative but other than that, i enjoyed playing it. PS. A little hard to get the target times, but its possible ;-)

I really liked this game ! It has a really pleasant and responsive engine, and the word-dragging gimmick is a great way to incite multitasking. The difficulty was just right because I never felt my deaths were because of the controls/engine but entirely my fault, unlike some others like Super Meat Boy. If anything I thought some goals were actually too easy, like the two "FADE" levels and a few end-game target times.

Speaking of target times, I'm kind of surprised so many people find them "impossible". Yes, they are hard, but they aren't the sort of thing you should expect to try and beat on the first try ; if you keep trying, the shortest route for each level will eventually become obvious. The levels are short, so there aren't THAT many possible ways to beat them. I got to admit moving while dragging the words at the same time takes a bit of practice though, but nothing "impossible".

I talked about what's the most important of any game for me, but everything else is also pretty neat. The general flavor of the game is quite funny and the music pretty catchy. I'm not a very big fan of the graphics because that "retro" style had been kind of overdone to me but it "gets the job done", haha.

So yeah overall I think this is a great game, so good job paste. Also for those guys who think it's even possible to 100% the game, well I did, so hah !

This is way too hard, target times are like impossible! Also dragging words is just stupid. And AWD as controls is not a good thing. Either make them customizable or change them. And those graphics, they are just horrible. Next time you make a game, put more effort in it, and make it possible to gain all medals. Sorry if this sounds rude, but I just say what this is.

I rarely play a flash game to the finish (unless it's really short), much less try to get all the achievements. It's been a long time since I've tried this hard to finish a game. I have unlocked everything except for the secret in the "GIMME A BREAK" level. I tried everything I could think of but no luck so far (will try again tomorrow).

But this is a fantastic game you made here, I think the only reason others aren't enjoying it is because of its brutal difficulty. But for me, the difficulty was spot on (and without it the game would probably lose its charm). Hard enough for a challenge, but not frustrating since everything's well done. I loved the humor, level design, art style, music and final boss.

So I hope you don't get discouraged by the negative reviews. It's just that the game is too hard for most players, which doesn't mean that the game is bad. I'm a game dev too by the way :) Keep up the good work!
