This is an HTML5 port of my game Josh Dumb, which was made for Ludum Dare 46, and is updated as a post jam release. It's on my website, Catpage, but I wanted to add it here to grow my Newgrounds image, and for ease of access.


A Game about a guy named Josh, who’s so dumb that the only thing he knows how to do is follow arrows.

You control a defense system made to protect him, and switch from placing springs on the ground for him to bounce on, to switching to your shield to blocking incoming bees, and destroying blocks with your cursor.

Sidenote: This game contains MS-Paint cutscenes with bad voice acting.
