It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

It was inspired by Dad 'n Me, and it says so in the author's comments.
Glad you like!

This was amazing.

I loved the combo system. I'm a huge dad n me fan, the only way this game could have been better is if you could have thrown small children into moving cars.

I totally beat it!

Dude. This game is fun but it is WAY too easy. You really need to increase the difficulty. Anyway, good game. I'm giving it a 10/10! ;)

Did you try it on HARD?
Next time I'll try to make the gaps between easy, normal and hard a bit bigger. Live and learn!
Thanks for the TEN!

Bodily Fluids At Its Best!

It's been awhile since I've found a game I've been willing to not only play on normal, but also play on hard. I NEVER would of imagined myself getting myself caught up in a game about hobos because usually I'm not into this kind of theme, but you single-handedly made me enjoy such a ridiculously entertaining theme.

At first, I wasn't too sure what to expect at the beginning since it seemed liked it would be just another one of those simple fighting games (with more fluidity than most, since some games tend to have a hard time using the controls), but wow was I wrong. From spitting, vomiting, and even taking a dump on the enemy, this hobo really knows how to use "EVERYTHING" at his disposal. I don't think I've ever had such a fun time making my enemies wince in agony from reaching into my own bowels and letting them have it. I laughed so hard the first time I obtained the burp and vomit, but the fart and dumping really made me rofl. The facial expressions on all my enemies were priceless, and I don't think you could of executed that kind of characteristic any better than you did in this game. With no recovery time for the enemy, they were all at the mercy of everything that is nasty in a hobo.

I guess the only problem I found for such a game like this is the combos. (And to think, I mentioned something similar like this on my review for your "Rise of a Knight" game) Well, it didn't really bother me about this thing I encountered (if anything, it made the game more enjoyable to play), but apparently, once you get a good amount of the combos unlocked, like the first 4, you can literally burp and spit in immediate succession, as well as fart and shoot a snot. Like for instance, by pressing A, S, S, I would burp from the A and S command, but the 2nd S would allow me to shoot a spit right away, even though the commands for spit were A, A, S. This also applied to when I tried S, A, A as well, to shoot a snot right after I farted. Also, another problem (but like the other one, it didn't hinder my enjoyment of the game) that I found was that you could dash, and do 4 dash attacks in one dash motion. Now, like I said earlier, I don't have a problem with it, it's just that, I don't know if you intentionally decided to put this feature in there, and if you did, then by all means, it's a great way to link the combos.

Overall, one of the most entertaining fighting games I've ever played. There's various different enemies to fight amongst, hilarious and numerous special attacks, and objects to throw at people. What more could you ask for in a fighting game?

From medieval to the modern urban times, your skills as a flash artist shape shift in order to make the games fun to play regardless of whatever theme it may be. I can only imagine what kind of game you would have in store for us to play next time.

First of all, WOW!
Thanks for that awesome review :)
I did intentionally make the combos so easy to access. I know exactly what you're talkin about and I thought long and hard about it before I decided to do it the way I did. I can easily make it so that you can't do combos so fast and easily after each other, but I personally found it much more entertaining the way it is. I knew there would be people who would complain that it's too easy, but I decided to go with my own personal taste, and I'm happy with that. The sliding attack used to be much easier to keep going on eternally, so I made it just a tad more difficult to keep going.

I feel like I am finally getting the hang of making games, but I'm unsure as to when I will have the time to start working on my next project. I've got a million and one ideas, but I have some stuff in my life I have to deal with first...
