Once upon a time, Noah is a huge jerk and won't let you and other critters on his boat, so what's a critter supposed to do? Chase him down that's what! Build yourself some rad machines and show that old man that you don't mess with Mr. Critter!

Hey guys! Since a couple of folks noticed the not so hidden resemblance to Berzerk Ball 2 I figured I'd comment on it.

Kick the Critter was made as a request from a client who was a big fan of the game, he basically wanted a clone of it for his brand. In the end, we could have just changed the graphics and pocket the cash to spend on booze on some resort island but instead we stayed home in the freezing winter, trying to make something a bit different, give it it's own reason to be so it's worth playing; the world doesn't need another BB2 clone.

So yeah that's the story behind why it is the way it is, in the end, we hope you all have as much fun playing Kick the Critter as we did making it! :D

What a great ending! XD

Guys, it's very cool game but very easy :(
Music 10/10!

Love it, love the guitar riffs, love the theme...just all of it

I really liked this game. There's a lot of options for upgrades and the minigames in themselves could easily be uploaded separately as their own games. the only critiques I have are honestly minor nitpicks when thinking about how awesome the game is as a whole. It would be good to have an option to turn off clouds, since they start going by so fast at certain points that they're essentially flashing white and it gets pretty distracting. There's also a weird thing that happens once I passed the final fight area after beating the game where I can't use my smashes anymore. I don't know if that's intended or not, but it's not a huge issue.
