Hey, everyone. I've changed my online username. I am no longer JonBro, and I won't be continuing anything that was made with the JonBro name. If you want to see an archive of my older work as well as what I'm up to now, you can find out here: http://www.jonochrome.com
Riddle School 5

I'd like to state for the record that you're not supposed to click on the broken tile to beat one particular room of the game. Clicking on a random object shouldn't have immediately led to a cutscene. That was a glitch when I first submitted. You're supposed to legitimately find and solve a puzzle in the room!

* Another note *
Unfortunately, it would appear the music for the puzzle room at the end of the game is no longer online. The creator has a music contract of some kind, meaning the song probably won't be put on Newgrounds again.

The finale to the Riddle School series. Not a joke this time.

This is the longest, craziest, and best game of the entire series. Sorry about the file size, but this game really is big. You might want to fit in some time to play it because it takes more than ten minutes to beat, and probably a good bit longer if it's your first time playing.

After the many helpful comments I got yesterday when I submitted RS4, I got right to work and finished this in one day. No, I'm kidding, I've been working on this for two months. I had the wild idea after making RS4 that I could start and finish RS5 between the first of February and the first of April. I didn't quite make the deadline, as I finished it today, but I wasn't going to release it the same day as the fourth game anyway. I was really going to release it tomorrow, but then today felt right.

I don't really want to spoil any of the plot twists, settings, or puzzles in this game, so witness for yourself this hopefully climactic point-and-click adventure.

Also remember that after you beat the game and see your time, you can view the game's Special Features.

The timer at the end states how many minutes you played, and how many seconds you played. For some reason, those are two separate things. Sorry if anyone's confused like I was lol

Thanks for the frontpage :D

i escaped school for this

Thank you so much for making this fantastic game, everything from the funny tone, the incredible plot twist, the simple yet memorable and funny characters, the simple art style and, the perfect ending makes this one not one of my favorite games, but of my favorite Newgrounds series of games.
One of the best things about the Riddle School games is its humorous tone and this game lives up to it greatly with bright, yet not overly contrasting colors. Its tone is also supported by great jokes like the alien sports pizza fanatic and Phil's criticism of the Eat-D Cream-E Cook-E poster and as others I won't spoil.
The game-play of this series hasn't really changed that much, for good reason, it works. This game follows the usual point and click adventure format of clicking objects to collect them and using them to solve puzzles and progress. What makes this fun is the puzzle solving aspect it brings to the table, you'll always be looking around attempting to solve puzzles that are hard yet not cryptic. The game does this by leaving clues for some of the more difficult puzzles.
This game's plot has always been very simplistic with Phil at school, attempting to escape and this game also has the simple plot of aliens abducting Phil and his friends to power a lazzer to destroy Earth. At the end of the game their is an fantastic plot twist that puts a new layer of intrigue to a straightforward story. (I won't spoil it!)
Another great thing about this game is the characters, Phil the lovable protagonist, Smiley the only kid who actually enjoys school, Zach the kid who is always cold and, Phred, Phil's best friend who hates school and always does the least he can in life. These characters in this game remind me of the book Sideways Stories From Wayside School, like this game it also has one-note gimmick characters, but I digress.
Overall this game series has been an incredible experience, and I suggest it to anybody who hasn't played it.

Why Isn't there a reset Butonn For the puzules

I've always loved this series and this was a great conclusion. I don't know why i didn't give it a review until now. Love your work man.
