You're an elementary school bully that plays by his own damn rules. Use your bullying skills to cheat your way through 6th grade in an effort to avoid boarding school.

Straight Bullyism is a turn-based, character-building RPG influenced by Fallout 3, Pokemon, Animal Crossing and The World's Hardest Game. Also, think of SB as half-game and half-cartoon, because there's a ton of cutscenes. Also, it took me *3 DAMN YEARS* to make!

WARNING: SB is a multi-part game; after completing level 1 you will be prompted to open level 2 in a new window on This is because the game was far too large to fit into one file, and I wasn't aware earlier of any way of making that happen. Sorry if this is annoying, but it was either that or I left the game with just one level.

Apparently a bunch of people have gotten stuck at various loading screens. You can try clicking the "Reload" button once, and then open the "Trouble Loading" window. If you see a black square, close the Trouble Loading window and wait, your game should continue loading. This may not work, so if not I'm sorry. I definitely won't ever make a multi-part game again.

Also, there's a bug in level 1 which causes the game to freeze after you accept the second or third mission. I can't fix it. However, it's really rare and highly unlikely that you will encounter it, but if you do... sorry, you will have to refresh the page and start again.

Finally, some people have reported that the game doesn't work in Google Chrome but does work in other browsers, such as FireFox. Try FF if you are having troubles in Chrome.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

You said it took three years to make this game, and it shows. Not due to the quality exactly, more but to the quantity of the whole thing. I sunk a lot of time into this, and while its pretty good there are quite a few things that need improving.

Firstly, the bully moves too slow. I realize this is done so you have to take your time if you want to avoid an enemy, but perhaps a sprint function that drains your self esteem quicker would be a nice addition when you just want to get from point A to point B.

Second, there's not enough voices for your enemies. While I certainly like that you added voices for each attack and I gave you an extra point for that, there are far too few and after a while it gets repetitive.

Third, and this is a big one, the combat isn't very good. While the idea itself kept me going... its just really REALLY repetitive.

Some nitpicks: You move faster going diagonally then any other direction.

Now for the good stuff:

The idea was AWESOME, I loved the idea of getting to fight literally everyone you see. The fact that the fat girls had guy voices was pretty funny, and I liked how some attacks damaged your self esteem. Animation was average but I forgave that easily. The fact that you lose self esteem and have to pay for saving your game sounds good on concept, but I can see that getting frustrating for many people.

Overall, solid game, I personally enjoyed it, though it was lacking.

My cat smells bad


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty good but needs some work.
you walk way to slow and you should experience after every fight instead after each level.
and the missing is ridiculous i missed 4 times in a row which really drains the fun
plus side it looks nice and has really good sound.

Rated 1 / 5 stars

The music was repetitive, the animation was average, the art style was average at *best* and very unpleasing on the eyes, the voices all sounded the same, and dear God the speed of walking was horrific! I finished the first mission and was already so tired I couldn't bear the thought of having to struggle to walk to another classroom to get a packet of cigarettes for the another mission.

All in all it didn't look good, it didn't sound good, it was a chore to play and there was nothing to make me want to keep playing. I'm sorry but I can't give this more than one star. It was thoroughly unenjoyable.
