Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 217 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

I really enjoyed it. I was easy, but replaying it didn't always yield the same results, so it's a fun little 2 minute time waster.

Yup, the level generator is completely random, except of course for a batch at the bottom which is all earth, and the edges which are stone. This is good and bad, because there's no way to control whether all levels are gonna be possible and not too easy, but it works, I guess.

First off, this was way to easy and to short. I beat it under a minute, while not being close to overheating or running out of fuel.

nice concept nice music

CrazyRaccoonGames responds:

Yup, the idea has potential, it just need some more working on it and some more love, specially when it comes to music and art. Thanks for the review!

Nice concept for a game but a few tweaks are needed. This could be a good level based game where it starts off easy and gets harder as the game levels go up. The overheating goes up a bit too fast making it impossible to get oil without suffering the consequences of overheating. That being said, that mechanic is a bit pointless because you can hail mary to the top without overheating or running out of oil so you could extend the height you have to reach and make the oil spots a little more rewarding. Just some ideas!

CrazyRaccoonGames responds:

Yeah you're most likely right, it's a good exercise to release the bad stuff and get good reviews like this one, practice makes perfect, and I'm learning more as I go. Thanks for the review!

It badly needs a mute to silence that horrible racket you put in as "music".

CrazyRaccoonGames responds:

Lol didn't think about a mute button, good idea though! I do agree the music wasn't good, it's my first time working with audio and music, but I'll get better some day. Thanks for the review!
