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.


there are many games in newgrounds, and this is one more, it is my preference, I like the style of platforms, dodging blows, that the enemy and the character have more than two faces in the fight, the gameplay is pretty cool, and many Things more, yes, it deserves 5 stars!

Thank you! <3

Finally did beat and get all medals, it's a good game, probably i was too much noob when i played in 2010. To anyone that plays this, the second form of the boss you probably want to get the level max hitting the graves, because if you follow too much the skull you gonna have a bad time

Guys i have a tactic to defeat the skeleton faster:
-stand in the up left corner platform
-keep combo-ing him before he shoots his fireballs
-when you fall from that platform, just look behind you and keep attacking

BoMToons, Coaly and Luis's flash game, Castle Crashing the Beard, is a challenging game and has incredible replay value till you achieve all the medals. I remember playing this flash game as a child and having difficulty to defeat The Beard. To this day, I still have trouble defeating The Beard but the difficulty motivates me to succeed. The Beard's attacks are easily predictable but that goes without saying the satisfaction of attacking makes you forget he can attack aswell and you should be dodging too.
Back in elementary school, I couldn't afford to buy Castle Crasher on my Xbox 360 but I was happy playing this flash game till I did get the money to buy Castle Crasher. In conclusion, Castle Crashing the Beard is worth 3.5 stars, it's addicting and motivates you to succeed with every death you take (and the medal you're promise if you do defeat The Beard). The music and sound effects are a joy to hear. The layout of the map is sloppy and holding the attack button to perform magic is uncomfortable. It's great to see the Knights again and I love the amount of effort put into this flash game - amazing work!
