Use the arrows to run around and aim your gun. The 'a' key shoots and the 's' key jumps. When jumping over an enemy, press DOWN and 's' to do a freak attack!

* You can ride enemy heads past roadblocks. they can run right through while they are freaking out!

* Eat enemy skulls in front of other enemies while on their shoulders -- their friend's reaction will give you a free cheapshot!

* If all else fails, you can try crawling your way to the end like the scum you are! haha

Very cool game. I like the different moves the character can make with only a few buttons. That combined with the versatile behavior and reactions of the basic enemy also provides great depth to gameplay. The large amount of bosses/subbosses is great. The humor expressed trough enemy emotions and never repeating background animation is also great.

Too bad only one level is free and it is the only level officially available for PC players, it is ultimately short. I have played it so many times over the years.

The full game needs to be released to PC officially otherwise PC only players will use emulators and not buy the full game. I am all for paying for developers work, but have no desire to buy a console, something I consider an outdated technology.

This definitely needs to be on PC. I was disappointed to search AH on steam and only find Castle Crashers.

Good game, beaten the Final Boss with zero lives, it was pretty easy when you learn the patterns and know the timing

This game is pretty good, but what's very frustrating about it is that you lose a life with only one struck by an enemy.

A great classic, its hard as heck but its fun.
