The whole "you can slash the barrels" thing is not incredibly intuitive, and would have saved me a LOT of trouble overall.
I'm saddened and frustrated, as I was doing quite well, only to lose all of my progress after the game froze. Now I'm on a completely different save, with about 1/7 of the score I had, and all of my items are gone. WTF?
I may come back to this another time, but right now, I'm feeling pretty burned.

I feel you. Flash player doesn't seem to like my game all the time.

Cant beat the first boss... maybe tone it down just a little? Other than that, its a great game.


Hypnohustler responds:

It can be a challenge, but it is certainly not impossible when you learn its patterns.

I think there's hardly anything to complain; graphics, sound, game-play; all perfect. Kudos!
Probably only the issue with having to choose between two kinds of fixed game controls.

Although some parts were extremely difficult; e.g. the one were the coldness showed the way was really frustrating.

I found a few [non serious] glitches (I think): Once I burned a soldier and suddenly a nearby larvae started to behave like a burning enemy (jumping around from left to right). In a lot of rooms I was able to walk on the ceiling. Then there was this strange bird boss bug, where the bird attacked me first, I left the room and when I returned the boss was stuck (and I was unable to proceed as I could neither kill him). Then there was this bad-ass room (the one which required about 13000 points and you had to jump over the birds: when you leave on the top exit it took me back to the start screen. A few times I was able to do slight wall-jumping (but it took a lot of time).

Parts of the game reminded me of QuackShot (especially "abusing" the birds with the new weapon).

Just two questions:
1) Is there any real secret to find where "the wall on the right seems hollow"? I tried to stack two barrels on each other as I thought there could be possibly a second wall to break (one tile above the ground) but never succeeded.
2) Do you happen to have a Flattr or Paypal account? I consider myself a pirate, but always would like to honor creators of art that I appreciate so much :-)

I'll be sure to check in to those bugs, thanks for taking your time to report them. :)
1) There is a breakable wall there, you should be able to use barrels and find couple beers inside.

Great game ! But one thing is strange to me... Some glitch abuse are possible, but it seems you are totally aware of it, because of the "YOU'RE A BIG FAT CHEATER" easter egg... Did you let this intentionnaly (in that case, I love you <3) ? Also, the game freeze randomly sometimes, forcing me to kill Firefox because it is not responding, but it doesn't seem to happen to other reviewers, so I won't lower my rating =). The sad part is that I never finished the game because of this =(.

It was intentional. :) The freezing might happen for some people with more complex levels, try to update your flash if you haven't already.
