Great job Matt. This game is unique and fun to draw in. I haven't submitted any of my drawings because in my eyes they look bad but I still appreciate the willingness and creativity that was put into this game.

best game ever


A really amazing adition to the Newgrounds selection of games. Although, it could use a reandom game maker, just so you don't have to type in a random name.

That's why there's a "RANDOM" button right below the area where you type a game ;)
