PATCH NOTES: Version 1.2

- Crouch controls altered so the 'down' button doesn't stand you back up.
- You will now get crushed when in between two blocks.
- Act 4: Stage 7 has been made larger due to many complaints.
- Some tutorial levels have been slightly altered also.

These will be in place in the next 24h once NG has verified it.

Thank you for the reviews so far. You have been awesome. So keep 'em coming so I can further enhance the experience for everyone.
EDIT: Wooo first front page! Thank you Newgrounds. Please let me extend this offer to everyone and please look on my profile for my future projects. Thanks guys :D


EDIT 2: It appears many players are experiencing further problems with Google Chrome. Please don't complain to me, just switch browser if you wish to play. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Here it is, Vexation 2, re-uploaded and rid of many more bugs! Now Google Chrome players can play I thought it's only fair it gets the justice (and reviews and ratings) it deserves... Enjoy!

CAUTION: There is a high risk of you smashing up your computer while playing! Can you handle the frustration?

Vexation is back for another 64 stages of utter brutality upon the poor stickman who you play as. However, this time around, our old friend has a few tricks up his sleeve to aid him through these hard times. Now not only can he just run and jump around, he can hang to ledges, swing around poles, jump from wall to wall and also front flip just to look cool.

Also, now there is a purpose to complete Gold on all acts. The reason is Gold Rewards which are awarded to those who deserve it. Each act has a Gold Reward attached to it which can be used by falling below the button on the menu. Don't get your hopes up for them to help you progress however because while they are enabled, you can get nowhere!

Enjoy the game without smashing up your computer: That's a challenge!

Really bad...

This game has terrible controls, sloppy hittesting, and rather poor art. In spite of that, it kept me playing for a few levels until I wanted to scream at the little stick dude for not doing what I told him to do. Vexation is a good name, but sadly that's about the only thing good about this game.

It's okay.

Seems okay, didn't really get pulled into it though. Not sure if it's the music or the falling into black blocks (once with deadly results), or just the time of night and lack of medals...

Maybe next time one of those level screens showing every level might work better than the Acts, which didn't really seem to be very separate from each other?

Excellent game!

I spotted that even before it was given the honor of the frontpage and was hoping that it will be frontpaged, because it is an excellent game. It is funny how symbolic it is. I don't think just beating the game is that frustrating. In fact, I enjoyed playing it and never felt any vexation. Winning gold is where it really gets on your nerves, which is genius. So there you have it: if (greed>vexation) {continue();} else {this.stop();}

Cant see any improvements but i think the gold stuff were unnecceccery.

They were just an incentive to earning Gold. Thanks for playing :)

Not seeing some of the complaints.

A lot of the problems that are occuring seem to be from user error. I thought the controls were altogether flawless (never did a moment occur as I played that I blamed the controls for my downfall). The challenge factor was excellent. I played through it without getting so angry I felt like giving up, but not so easy that it was boring and just felt like I was going through the motions.

However, you also added the 'Time Trial' factor would curbs up difficulty exponentially. I don't have the attention span or desire to attempt to tackle those times, but I'm sure the challenge is certainly there.

Music was catchy, never grated on my nerves or detracted from the game experience, so that was a plus.

All in all, an excellent platformer that was very fun and challenging. Keep up the great work.

Thank you very much. At least someone isn't ranting because they cannot complete it.
