Firefox no likey. Shame, since I loved me some ORVS.

Okay, that was awesome. I was doing so well, and then I lost my fucking mind.

Grrrrrrr. More Unity. Time to reboot if I want to play.

hifiparasol: worked fine in my FF. Do you have the Unity player? It's not a cult, I promise. But damn, if any plugin sounded like a front for a charismatic leader with outrageous demands and an unchecked libido...

When I was a kid I saw this game in a vivid daydream.

Press arrow keys to move.

Oh, well. Next candidate.

Oh, and don't forget their other previous work, Jetpack Brontosaurus.

I get all the sounds and about 10% of the visuals (shortcut buttons and frame). It sounds nice...

*sad face*

Same here Jilder. I even tried it in Chrome and IE. Velociraptor Safari works for me though. :(

Works perfectly for me in Safari on Mac OS X 10.5

Fun game - very impressed with the 3D graphics - especially when you begin to rage. Serving customers got old though. Better to just SMASH.

OK, this was fun. Me like smashy smashy.

Pretty fun, but doesn't have the same repeat-play thrill for me the way Velociraptor Safari did.

I love the off-the-wall concepts this team comes up with, however.

Pretty game. Works fine in Firefox OSX. Really, really, really annoying controls.

I suppose that's supposed to increase my frustration and rage. It works.

Crashed my FF, and I had the Unity Player. Oh, maybe I needed to reboot the puter. Oh well.

FWIW, once I tried it on FF 3 Vista it works. To the tune of a 31x insurance combo. Whirlwind can be your friend, since it also dislodges arrows.
