Rambo. John Rambo. Like you've never seen him before.

RAMBO: LAST BLOOD. Flash game. But not really a game. I think.

Whoa!

What does the phone do though? Tried a few random numbers but didn't get anywhere.

Saw this on RPS. Fantastic.

Sadly there isn't an ending sequence. You either light up Valhalla or not & that's it.

Theophile -- notice the ghostbusters' ghost trap on the right? Perhaps you need to call the Ghostbusters (they're ready to believe you.)

I played it all the way through, and yeah, it's cute and funny, in that ironic, stoner-tainted way that things are funny now. I would have preferred blowing shit up, honestly. I did like the Ghostbusters reference, though. It's good to know all the massive amounts of useless information my brain likes to remember occasionally comes in handy.

I was hoping this post meant it had an ending now, but according to coolxcool=rad, it still doesn't. Alas.

I can't get past the boss on the third level. How do you get around the whip once you kill the goons?

Definitely would have liked to see more of an end sequence, as well as a Hell sequence for failing to make amends with anybody.

Ugh I know, right? It's like, hey, one-joke-flash-game creators, I know your resources are small but my requirements of closure are equally paltry. I'm just looking for justification for spending an extra 4 minutes replaying the game for a "perfect score." I would take pretty much anything, a splash screen showing John Rambo in an icon pose with the caption "This Time We Got to Win", you know, or whatever.

I believe you mean references, plural. Check out the painting gallery.
