*April 09 - Medals Added!*
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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

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!

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


Rated 5 / 5 stars

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


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I liked it more than anything else, what would come being the controls, is easy to handle, the veil is perfect, and the difficulty is ideal, the second face of the battall easily was my favor, good job Keep it up, you're going to make it big with things like this.
