Increased parrying chances
Decreased non-boss bot's health
Animated Dad's body and head(breathing)
Facebook Link changed
****ALSO,You can PRESS and HOLD 'S' to keep the chainsaw UPWARDS****

This game was originally supposed to be out on Pico Day but the file got corrupted and I didn't enough time to finish it from the last backup file.That's the reason there's 'Dad' in it.
Enjoy this short game ^^

[]Press S when you hear the mechanical arm moving sound while fighting with the white robot to parry in time.
[]Stay between the flames of the rockets in the cyclops bot level
[]Stay on the left side when the cyclops is firing his laser
[]Reach the end and attack the blue bot,you shouldn't get attacked

This is a decent game but sometimes you get hurt without being touched by anything.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good Game however last medal isnt working


Rated 5 / 5 stars

lol the second boss is a Piece of Cake


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

jerky animations, sound loops have gaps in them, enemies will move through solid objects, sometimes getting stuck so far in obstacles they can't be touched but can still shoot at you. Needs more polish and testing.

The game is not this bad, but... you reset all medals just to change details, man? I didn't like this.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Super improvement! Finally got the cake I deserved, lol. However it's still not a game that would deserve a perfect score in my opinion, but playing it is hard to regret! Great job!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Haha! harassing a one eyed robot with a chair saw brought a massive smile to my face.

The graphics aren't bad and it was a lot of fun to play plus props to the music, keeps you pumped up.

So off to try and get that final medal!

Down half a star because dad does feel a bit like on rails, but anyhoo this is definately worth a go!

Thanks to authors!

How funny. I managed to defeat the boss (or at least scare him away) before I learned how to parry. It went slow for me, but that's probably because I have all these tabs open. There's a lot of stuff for me to review today okay! I would have hoped for a more conventional Dad game. This was still quite playable.

It's fun to hear that sound of metal against your chainsaw. Everyone's pretty hard to kill in this game. Still, I got some medals of course. I appreciate the music. It's been too long since I've seen Dad around and I'm not talking about Dad from "Dad's Home" who also has his own game.

i don't agree with your statement in the description.
I would have to say that if you DID update the game, you could have gotten a higher score, but it's getting to a high score overall.
But besides that, the update itself helps you realize what needs to be done, if not in other games!
A lot of people (even in artwork) will go to their original piece and improve it with things they've learned with their new found experience.

But you know, that's just me.
Good game, though.

I love the first boss thing!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I liked it..

I thought you had some really fun bosses, which had a buch of different levels of attack, which kept things interesting.. Im not sure if I like how you slid back when you got hurt, and the jump animation didnt feel right, but aside from that, you show alot of fun creativity with your multi tiered bosses, nice job!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice game , i like it


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good game, dude!

Although I found the 'S' attack basically worthless and took a bit to figure out the 'A' attack is the one you should use.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Definitely the quality I am use to.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I didn't really enjoy it that much, but I can't deny that it was a quality submission with effort put into to it.
Gameplay was fun, but a little monotone, although I didn't play the game very long, so that might change later in the game. Also like Mind Chamber said the jump animation feels a little strange.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Not bad but those hit boxes at level 3 when the robot eye shoots lasers with its eye are so annoying anyway nice game :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I like how it's skill with _not much_ graphics / decals on top of it. And I do mean that, manystream of games of this kind of skill often.. overloads the decoration; that obscures the real deal.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I know that this was a robots day submission, but what is wrong with newgrounds? I haven't been to the website for a while, but this is the sort of game that would normally never get featured on the front page. It's a decent game, funny for a couple of minutes, yes, but controls are clunky, boss fights are predictable as hell, I mean, the overall quality is nothing special, compared to many similar games out there. I don't want to take the credit away from you mate, it's a functional, average game, but it just didn't do it for me, and it bothers me that this game is being featured, because this isn't the newgrounds quality I was used to, and that makes me sad. Just my 2 cents, of course.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

The return of dad!


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Poorly made, full of glitches, and nearly impossible.


Rated 0 / 5 stars

The only reason this thing survives is because there are 4 people submitting it and it features Dad. No power-ups, wonky controls, yeah....gobshite.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Pitifully easy, short, and only two attacks against three mooks and two bosses. This felt like a Demo of a game. I'm giving it 3 stars because I know games and such can be a hassle to make, you probably made this last second to make a deadline, I'm happy to see the return of an actual Newgrounds character, and cake. But otherwise there really needs to be more for a frontpage game. Best of luck to your projects in the future.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Pretty poor attempt here. You say it is a re-upload to avoid bad scores yet you did nothing deserve good ones. I would recommend working on game feel more than anything. When I can just stand at the final boss and hold the attack button to win because of how much health I still have then there is something that doesn't flow together.

Keetron welcome to newgrounds


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

sorry buddy but this reupload is very weak :/ i mean here lotsa bugs at begin i`ve found 2 first is second boss when boss bar is enmty and it dies boss still executing its attack patterns after death, second bug with parry not in 100% succesful only way to parry dat scythe is when it going to slash you but not so much effective because come part of scythe hits dad`s hitbox :/
what`s more character handling it need to be fixed because it is not enought smooth
when you fix it game willbe more interesting and playable cheers


Rated 0 / 5 stars

Sorry bud. No stars, I only played outta pity and mostly for the achievements. This game puts "My Dad n' Me" to shame... It looks like it was slapped together using shit as glue and mediocrity as material. Put more effort in for next time.


Rated 0 / 5 stars

This game is a disgrace to Dad n Me...this is horrible...just beyond horrible


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

That game was fun to play
I don't get why people are saying that it puts dad n me to shame,I am just happy to see that someone made a tribute to the dad n me collection atleast,he was probably not making a game as epic as dad n me,just a tribute.
The game was neither excessively hard or too easy to play.
To the people voting 0,this game is better than most average games around here,I enjoyed playing it,that's the main concept.
Dad's animation was a bit robotic like,you need to improve on your animation bud,make it smooth.
Other than that I really loved the simple art and gameplay :)
.........but why wasn't a single medal unlocked? :|


Rated 2 / 5 stars

lovely music ^_^
other then that it could've been quite better and the parry isn't working much, avoiding the scythe will prevent demage


Rated 0 / 5 stars

how to play:
step one: close the game.
step two: do not enter this game ever again.
step three: go play dark souls,chivalry,god of war ,etc.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Well It's playable but here are the problems, The jumping and movement is way to slow, The non boss bots take to long to kill and have time to keep knocking you back. The knock back could be decreased. Overall work on it more. There is something here but this version isn't there yet.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

very enjoyable!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

It's a fun, quick game. I found myself still having a very hard time getting the parrying down. I found it much easier to just avoid the swing and attack in between. There was no need to parry at all. Also, I never found a use for the holding 'S' upswing thing. I guess I could have used it on the first boss, but it was just easier to stand on the platforms. The movement was quite slow, so I think if that was sped up a bit, it would increase the pace of the game. Maybe add some moves other than just turning the chainsaw on and holding it up. Having the enemies be a bit more unpredictable would make it more difficult as well. I can tell you put work into it as the music was appropriate and there were no glitches I could find.

DUDES GIVE IT A PAUSE BUTTON... other than that it's ok

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

WENT OUT OF THE SCREEN IN THE 3RD LEVEL i killed it someway but in the 4th level it happened again and i died the game is ok but that is a huge bug wen i lost a life against the first boss the screen moved so it made dificult to dodge anything so i lost another and then it was impossible for each life i lost, the screen moved more and more to black screen and then a red screen when the first boss died because i was just holdig S the 4th level was a black and red screen without dad and i died


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Went out of the game :'(


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

So, the cyclops came back to life after I killed him.... :*( I thought that it might be part of the game at first but he was invincible then XD


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Meh... The game is just : on bosses, leave the A button pressed to win the fight. Except when the game decides to screw you, like for the blue boss : Laser on the high zone, grenade flying from the small bot. Impossible to dodge.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good game in general, kinda short. It could take a third boss to become more challenging.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Just because dad is freaking awesome!!

But honestly, the graphics could be so much better. I have seen a lot of games like this, where graphics have really improved the gameplay. Boss battles are really cool, it's just the graphics i have an issue with.

Adding super powerful moves would not have hurt either. I mean attack and attack up. How about a limiter or maybe something more. Game has a lot of potential, maybe if you do decide to work on top what you already have. But all in all a good game nonetheless.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Well. gameplay wise, it wasn't bad.... But the second boss was unbeatable. I had his health drain down the bar, until it was gone, but their was no death scene. So, wondering if it was a glitch, I kept sawing, and sawing, and nothing changed. Eventually, I started typing this review, which is when I finally died.

This game rocks! I've been working on some other ones and I was debating on playing this one. I can't believe I didn't play it sooner! I've always been a fan of Dad! The robots are really unique! Good medals, too!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad, cool


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This is Overall a Nice Game that reminds old ones, why so much hates?

But as other say, Animation weren't that good, And we dont have much possibility in the game
such as Other Way to attack or going down (maybe you just didnt wanted to add it)

but don't take it so badly, this deserve (and he do) a win place.

I have not won the game but.... MAKE A SEQUEL IT'S A GOOD GAME xD

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not bad but the moving could have been better but besides that it is good


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I hate it when I lose my cake!

Definitely a short game!! Yeah - needed a pause (so had to come back to finish it - thankfully its not too hard). Not bad for a short game. Robots are fairly predictable, but do vary their attacks, but telegraph well - so big tick for that. Parrying felt a bit useless - satisfying to do - but never really felt the need, just dodged out of the way - probably needed to add a stun to go along with it. Dad should feel overpowered anyway!

Only real gripe is dad's movement - there's no real "weight" to his jump: its basically straight up and down at the same speed - I really can't think of anything that actually moves like this - so the jump feels wrong.

No sparks to accompany chainsaw vs metal!?! Got to stop using that sparkless chain oil!!
