Hey guys, I’ve started work on a possible William and Sly 3. Follow me on facebook for updates!


This is probably my best game to date. I wanted to make something more accessible, as most of my flash games have been too complicated for my family to play. :3

I really hope you guys enjoy it, I think it's the most effort I've put in to anything. A big thanks to everyone who helped me test, and Tom and NG for the sponsorship!

As always, leave a comment! I love reading them.

EDIT: The game has version detection, but YOU NEED FLASH 10 to play it. If you have trouble loading the game, please send me a PM with the details.

EDIT: Because nearly everyone is saying they can't figure out the boss's pattern, I've made a slight change that should make it more obvious. Once the game update is approved I'll let you guys know and you can try again with the new pattern. *Alright it's up now*

If you're getting a black screen after the Newgrounds and Particlasm screens this applies to you. This might also help with the loading bar freezing. This was posted by a Kongregate user (thanks Knork):

"If the game does not load past the ads make sure that and are not being blocked in your hosts file. Which is located under C:\WINDOWS\system32\drive rs\etc
If they are, uncheck the "Read-only" attribute and edit out those two lines."

If this works for you let me know.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very nice

Overall, the sense of atmosphere was what came across the most in this. The game seemed to have started a little late into the story, so things didn't really make sense to me and I didn't know why I was doing what I was doing. That's not a terribly bad thing, because it seemed to really set the world up as one that had a history that I was seeing a part of.

The final boss was also a little confusing. I think I worked out at the end what his pattern was, but I was never really sure about how I was going about beating him.

That said, the platforming was very well implimented, and you nailed something that nearly every indie platformer doesn't do - momentum. Sly feels very controllable and it's a great game to help you unwind.

The music, the ambient weather and the animation were perfect, and everything fitted really nicely into each other to make a pretty beautiful experience. I really enjoyed playing it, and I look forward to seeing more from you :3

Great game overall

I like it. Very nice, laid back feel. Definite relief from the blood and guts gory games normally on here (not that there's anything wrong with blood and guts gory).
