This platformer is so buggy I'm staying away from his indie work on principle.

This is exactly what I needed today to remember to lol a little bit at life and for vicarious pleasure that doesn't result in me being unemployed.

It's a pretty adorable idea, but that is one buggy little game.

This is the same guy who made Polychromatic Funk Monkey? Righteous. I really enjoyed playing that.

(Oh, and ROM Check Fail, which is awesome in its own acid-flashback way)

Well, the Linux version of his Fishie Fishie game installed and runs very smoothly, so I wish him the best of luck.

No bugs for me. That was cute.

Buggy?! It's a 4-screen platformer with basic controls. I've played it 3 times without encountering a single bug. What are you guys doing to it, exactly?

I'm gonna submit a speedrun to the Speed Demos Archive.

Little Flash games are a pretty great way to send a message. Sure kicks the ass of making a collage.

I am unable to leave the second screen. I cannot reach the mushroom.

I am defeated.

it's ok. i had forgotten my old school mario techniques, too. You remember all those skinny little brick platforms you would occasionally have to land on, pause, and then jump to the next one from in the first smb? well, that dot on the right side is one of those. you have to get as much running speed as you can on that tiny dot. it is, however, possible.

Also the "air control" is way stronger than normal Mario. Just hold left down!

Reminds me of how I dumped my last girlfriend.

That is much classier than when I got drunk and peed on my former boss's car.

I'm with archagon. I didn't see anything even slightly buggy.

Of course I wasn't trying to play it in Opera in a emulator window on an alpha build of Kosmic Koala on a hacked Playstation 3 using WiiMotes as the inputs.

I just used the arrow keys and space bar like any normal person would.

Hmm... suddenly the existence of Windows Vista makes so much more sense.

I just used the arrow keys and space bar like any normal person would.

It crashed my computer.

Then I rebooted, went back, and it worked just fine with arrow keys and spacebar. So YMMV. Even you alone.

There's a bug if you are on the extreme right of the second screen, jumping up and down. I think; it may just be that I suck at side scrollers.

For what it's worth, presumably the "incredible project" he had the opportunity to work on at 2k Australia was Bioshock 2.

Ha, ROM CHECK FAIL is hilarious. Oddly fun in all its buggy glory.

I quit on the level with the purple cloud and retro cactus. This is too hard for those of us who had friends in high school.
