Help Charlie get home by sliding him towards the magical desert butthole.

Be careful!
Cactuses hurt, Rocks are heavy, and Walls are hard!

Once you begin sliding, you can't move in the opposite direction, so plan each step carefully and think fast!

ESCAPE = MENU [ but only at the start of levels ]

NOTE: semi-gamepad support is available [ tested with a wired xbox 360 controller ], but it is HIGHLY encouraged to play on a keyboard for better accuracy.

This game rocket my world. Mostly because it seemed terrible at first. A few levels in I realized the genius hiding behind the simple visuals and plot that only a game from NewGrounds could have.

If this had an update for the visuals that remained true to the original style, some more sound effects, maybe a narrator and a level editor, I would pay 15 eur for it on steam.

Wow, thank you so much! I'm very happy you enjoyed the game! :)

I just might touch this up a bit [ or, a lot ] and make it into a more 'full' / 'proper' game sometime in the future.

Thanks for playing!

Awesome game. A bit rage inducing but Still fail at the same time. the controls feel slightly stiff at times but nothing that truly cripples the game and takes away from the enjoyment.

The Mechanisms were very interesting and unique. I don't think Iv'e ever seen a game do something similar to the glass thing so props (the boulders had a bit of the impossible game feel).
Complementing fun lighthearted story for the whole family is great.

Loved it, enjoyed it a lot, Great game!

i gave it a 5 to be honest because i really wanted to see more!
but i have these comments:

- Great Music, but title screen music was a little annoying
- Great story line to be honest! was simple and funny and could expand to soo much more
- The name caught my eye and i had to check it out, was so funny
- Nice simplistic characters, leaving room for much more personality traits as the story progresses
- loved that you had to move to see the rules and options
- the controls felt nice
- Nice that the options featured the possibility to stop some animations if they irritated the eye.
- Funny sound when you went through the butthole. that and the color of the confetti made it really satisfying to beat a level.

Bad stuff:
- The death animation from the cactus was really funny, therefore it sucks that the wall and rock death didn't have animation
- The rocks are just still frames rotating no matter what direction they're heading.. you could make that better by actually animating it
- on the first stage with three rocks, it is actually possible to rest/stand inside one of the black guys.. you might wanna check that out.
- It was kinda annoying that when you died, the rocks would go back to their starting point as well. i prefer the stages move continuously and if you die then you are the only one being set to start.
- Game turned kinda boring after second world, but i finished it in hope of addings to the level and a great ending..
- The ending wasn't great compared to the introduction.
- The whole 'timing the rocks' got really tidious fast. not rocks in general but the "here's a looong passage with a rock at the end so you have to figure out when to move at the beggining, then wait 4 seconds and die"

Great game! love to see more of the butthole cactus!

this is a very well thought out and very helpful critique, thank you!

A tot of the negatives you mentioned occurred to me during development and I debated on whether or not they were problematic. Seeing how you felt encourages me to make these changes in future projects.

Thank you very much for playing and leaving feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Incredible as the games of the past. And here we are in that line where we expect incredible graphics but with simple lines you can spend hours having fun.

-Incredible game
-has a very original touch
- note the effort and dedication
The music is simple but very good
-the storyline short but incredible
The character is fun

I found a very good game. With very simple details but the entertainment is guaranteed. The music is very good combined with the sounds, the controls are very good and do not fail, a good start with the storyline and an incredible character.
