Old School Genius

This does remind me of those games of old that were bleedin impossible, until you realised that the bosses routines could be avoided with the right timing.

It reminded me of old bosses of Sonic games, and also, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for the NES, most though. My desk used to have teeth marks because of those games :-P.

Just need to get the half health medal now! :D

Literary paradox win!

At first I thought the game was ridiculously difficult but as they say, "third time's the charm." On my third attempt I got into the rhythm of the game and got the whale to half health with most of my health still intact. Eventually I slipped up though and got dropped to half health by a barrage of water drops, water vacuum, and spiked platforms.

Anyways, the game does require patience and a basic knowledge of platforming and cue recognition. To those who think this game is difficult, I say, go play Ninja Gaiden on the NES, then you can complain.

Great game here, keep up the good work.

The Z and X buttons do not work

Though I can tell this is a good game the jump and attack do not work.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

these comments make me sad.

simply because you won the award tons of people flocked to this game. most of these kids grew up with there call of duty. this game is great. and i found that not being 13 years old really helped me to beat this game.

i feel extra bad that your rating is partly due to the hardness and the slow jumping speeds rather then the quality and the challenge of the game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

and beside the fact it weighs a couple thousand pounds + it would normally devour oyu if it whear to eat you and it would litterally obliterate you with one blow and the rain part it would drown you in its water splash attack so yeah seems real to me so no crying but i dont think you could kill ikt with just harpoons you,d need an whaleship to get it on board and then kill it while its being slaugthered alive thats how the dutch and many other countries used to do to get whale oil and tar and ember -_-
