You're a rabbit who is looking for a party? That sounds about right.
I'm not sure where I was going with this. It was a graphic style I was
working on, but then I decided to make a small game out of it.
I'd remove any expectations you have of it before you play it.


Made in: GM7 Pro.
Screen Type: Fullscreen only.
Changes Screen Resolution: Yes.

Things I like:

1. The wobbly platforms. It's like Rugrats or summink

2. The 'Jump -- go on! -- jump!' joke. Curse you!

3. The king. Whaddacutie!

Not bad for an afternoon! But I gave up when things got a bit 'uncontrollable'...

Thank you. I've always wanted to make a game with a messy, child-like graphic style, and I think this one turned out alright. I'm assuming the uncontrollable part you mentioned was when you picked up the King's treasure. Once you clear that part, it's the end of the game, so don't give up!

It was good, although I managed to get stuck in a wall with the room with the falling rock, I was wondering what to do and I saw the wall with nothing blocking it on the other side, so I decided to see if anything would happen, and I got stuck.

@ Pinpickle: Thanks, but which room did you get stuck in? Was it the room just before the King's chamber?

@ Koron XYZ: Thank you. That also means that the last room isn't that hard to find. :P

Entertaining game! I played up until I got wings/turned into an angle-like-thing, and then stopped after dying about 30 times trying to get out :P

I like the graphical style. They work well, even if they are little simplistic.

@ Drazzke: Thanks man. That seems to be the part where people give up at. I figured the game needed some difficulty, so I added that part.

@ DPoole: Gee, thanks Darren. Glad you liked it.

Games never need difficulty.

That's debatable, but I do feel that what you have already was enough as far as difficulty goes, and the difficulty curve you added might alienate players. Fun game though.

Did you also post that on Indiegames? It's like someone's trying to rat me out or something. That was the aim for this game and I was hoping people would guess it. I figured it'd be pretty obvious for people who have seen the album before. Just for the record.

Also, I'll fix up that flying part. Too many complaints it seems.

I'm not trying to rat you out, I just figured very few people would see the reference and thought it was cool.

Wow, this could have been 4/5, except for that flying part which made it 2/5

I'm aware of that problem and I aim to fix it soon. Thanks for playing though.

I have always wanted to play an unusually fun, sloppy graphic, highly nonsensical game. I enjoyed it very much.


Oh, and I'm not being sarcastic.

Don't remove it though. I like it, it just needs to be a bit easier :)

I think it's quite easy and simple... just as it should be
