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:
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

JonBro responds:

Thanks! ...I've never really thought fighting and leisurely point-and-click adventure game puzzle-solving go together so well.

It's weird. This is my favorite game, and it's my least favorite too. It has all the Riddle School charm, but I guess the what I loved the most was the mundane-ness of Riddle School. Every other point-and-click needs some supernatural element or be extremely violent, while Riddle School was you escaping school, and that's it. When aliens got added into the mix it lost the charm of "Kid wants to escape school. Help him out" that the first 3 had. That being said, it's still a great game. Sucks to know that this is the last game, but I guess all good things must come to an end.
Continue Riddle School though. It's my favorite point-and-click series, and I would love to escape college with Phil. You could do a back to basics thing :P But that's just me wanting you to continue. Anyway, thanks for all the fun!

You make understandable points that I haven't heard before but are very true. I guess I thought it would be fun to carry the series out of its mundane nature and send it someplace no one would ever have expected... but in a more natural manner than sonething like the fourth Indiana Jones. RS5 is easily my favorite game of the series, but your comment helped me figure out why many people still consider RS3 to be the best.

I won't continue Riddle School though, I'm afraid. I like how the series ended, and having Phil go back and escape college would kinda completely undermine this game's moral, lol

Thanks for your thought-provoking insight!
