Not bad! The art is cute and the gameplay seems pretty polished.
The bouncing back was a little buggy, as sometimes it didn't appear to actually respond to getting hit, but most of the time it was good.
I wasn't sure if I could hit the innocents, since they are spiky--I was afraid Rubberman was going to get caught on them.

This is great! I love the characters: so colourful and cute. It really needed some sound: imaging if you recorded gobbledygook insult words into a microphone (shmugging flashbum flibbersnaggit) it would be funny without resorting to real swear words. About one in every 25 insults do not collide with my blocker... generally for leftward moving sprites. But apart from this minor bug it was a great effrot. Well done.

Thanks for your comments! Yes, the hit detection was a bit off on where the insult hits Rubberman, so it sometimes causes the insult to go toward one of the insulters on the other side - possibly even exactly directly behind Rubberman...

And again thanks very much! I love the audio idea :)
