Thanks for the nomination for the 2008 Tank Award!

This game is all about Tom Fulp's commitment to not shave his face until his next console game, Castle Crashers, is completed. It's a ridiculously over-the-top arcade boss battle that is well worth your time. We hope you enjoy it and discover the secret character!

Did we mention that Tom himself voice-acted his role in this game?

Arrows to move
"A" button for attacks
Hold "A" to charge a special attack

"P" to pause
"M" to toggle bg music on and off

Thanks to Luis for really nailing the Castle Crasher sprites and bringing new flavor to them with his NG-themed weapons.

Thanks to Coaly who brought "The Beard" to life.

Thanks to The Swain who was kind enough to throw in a few voice clips too.

Shout out to myself for coding , doing the bg art, menus, and sounds.

Special thanks to Tom for supporting this adventure and inspiring all us flash artists to create stuff we love.


Pure, unadultarated fun

You realise that people will now want a full game in this style, 'cause this just works so well.


Every bit of this is perfect. The artm the animation, the gameplay, absolutely perfect. It IS hard, but it somehow makes you wanna keep playing until you beat the godamn beard. One of he best games on newgrounds.

Here are some tips for everyone who's having a hard time:
-Try stacking 3 or 4 tombstones togheter, they'll give you much more exp with each hit
-When Tom closes up on you, you'll have time to land 3 or 4 blows before he attacks.
-If you are having trouble dodging the laser beam, there are two ways to do it. First, You can dodge the higher beam by just staying on the lower level, and dodge the lower beam by cimbing one of the two higher plataforms(the middle ones won't save you). Second, you can stay behind him while he is unleashing his beam, and when he goes down give him a few attacks to give you some room. You may give him a few smacks from this position while he is casting his beam.
-If you stacked some tombstones togheter, Try attracting tom to them. If you attack them altogheter, you can get much more exp. Just make sure you run after you give 4 attacks
