I originally posted this on Newgrounds in 1999, before the current Portal system.

Your master is dead, and you're out for mindless revenge against everyone! Use the arrow keys to walk, "A" to attack, "S" to jump and "D" to block.

This game was made in Flash 4, which is why the keyboard input is laggy. Flash 4 didn't allow consistent keyboard input, so I had to fudge it to make the character move as smoothly as possible. I was tempted to fix it, but decided to maintain the crappy integrity of the original.

It is also worth noting that Flash 4 didn't support depth swapping, so it was a pain in the butt to make the characters overlap eachother based on their depth on the screen. I don't say this stuff to be boastful, I say it because I want people to appreciate why my old games are so crappy. These were the pinnacle of Flash programming at one point and I need some props!

The background art was by Michael Bregman. I did the rest!


Pretty good.

I like the game. Haha I love the ending!

A good start...

This looks like it could've developed into a fun and exciting hack and slash game, but it's far from complete. There really wasn't any challenge to it and the "to be continued" nature of it after the first level made it seem really rushed.

Again, this wasn't a bad game, but it's far from complete and I really kind of expected more from a great programmer like you, Tom. Hopefully this gets a sequel with more levels, better graphics, and some actual challenge. I'd love to see this become as big as Pico.


Now that there is flash 10 or something, update this, it's been 12 years, this game is old as crap.

good memories

omg i remember playing this when i was a child in a random page of flash games, awesome.
