Talk about a nightmare; after not having the pleasure of submitting a new game to the Portal in such a long time, I had to miss the opportunity due to a POWER OUTAGE.

My power went out around 7pm and just now came back around 4:30am. It was agonizing, not to mention one of the hottest days of the year and we couldn't run the A/C.

I had to make the decision to either postpone the midnight launch of Dad 'n Me or give Dan the greenlight to submit without me, so I decided to disappoint myself rather than everyone else. One of my favorite moments in life is the initial response to a new submission - seeing the first reviews pour in and the first votes get tallied. The feeling is often more exciting than the first time I saw Alien Hominid on a store shelf and I think most Flash authors would agree it feels great when you first submit something new. It's a bummer I missed it, but now I get to catch up in the middle of the night!

Thanks so far for all the positive feedback, as well as the criticisms. The game was meant to be more for stress relief but we decided to add some challenges along the way, so I'll admit it may have turned out a bit imbalanced. I just hope everyone has fun knocking stuff around and creating chaos, which was the main goal of the game! Almost 12,000 views and a score of 4.65 after five hours on-line! Woohoo!

It is gut wrenching when you subit a cartoon or game because your alway a lil curious about what others will think about it or say. This was a fabulous game and its going to be number 1 for along time. alien homanid never had a score like this before. congrats

Response to Dad 'n Me 2005-07-28 05:05:31


its a great game, art is awesome.
great gameplay and must be pretty decent code as there is alot of stuff with a reasonably good file size.

that really sucks. i think you should have waited a little longer. i would be really disappointed too if this happened to me, so i would just wait until the power was back up. you missed the most important moment of the release. you should definitely have waited. oh well, what's done is done. anyways, you did a really good job. it has a lot of cheap deaths and it isn't perfect overall, but it's still really fun overall.

Response to Dad 'n Me 2005-07-28 05:08:36


It's a great game, Tom. You and Dan should be proud. ^_^

Are you able to win the monthly vote? It would be fun if you shipped $250 to yourself.

And reply to reviews plzkthxbai.

Response to Dad 'n Me 2005-07-28 05:12:23


That was pretty nobel of you.
It's a fun game, though I can't beat the last boss.
He just keeps shooting me, oh well.
I see you've put in a few names of regulars, admins and mods.
Over-all, very nicely done, I think you pretty much keep improving every time you make a Flash.

Tom Fulp in agony after not being able to get online...

I wonder how long it will take for Ebaums world to steal Dad n' Me.. It didn 't take that long for all the other movies and games they've stolen from here.

But still.. I did like the game but it wasn't the best that I expected (Like in the review :(...)
and it seems that I can only play it properly when it's the size of a business card on my screen..

Is this because I have a crap computer?

Yes.

Response to Dad 'n Me 2005-07-28 05:17:22


I played it is good but its too slow.

Dont take me wrong, game is great !

You're right about the stress, Tom. That game relieved my stress like I was smoking a joint. Well done. Can we expect a console version?

Response to Dad 'n Me 2005-07-28 05:27:39


It's definately the best side scroll-flashgame there is! Wow. So many combo's and so many things. Great graphics by Synj as always! This rocks!

I was just wondering... Is it one big level non stop? Or did I die at the first level??

It's one big level.
The ninja's are pretty easy, run at them and repeatedly press 'S'

Is there a way to beat it? Or it just keeps going? Are there any health power ups at all? How close to the end am I from the ninjas?

Really close, if you beat the ninja's, you face the last boss.
Before you face the last boss, you get a full health power-up.
