DRUGSDRUGSDRUGS - play as a drug addict in this crazy colourful beat 'em up!

In this game you can:
Punch Doctors!
Walk on your head!
Get a highscore!
Defy gravity!
Get high!
...punch some more Doctors!
Break the highscore!

The link to the theme - Drugs are your 'escape from reality'. Yeah.

Instructions in game.
(Arrow Keys to move and jump, Z to punch, punch doctors to get drugs to keep you craving bar full)

Jump over the doctors then punch them from behind!
Doctors can't punch you if you're in the air either.

Created in AS3 with Flashpunk.

The Newgrounds version is slightly improved, with music and stuff, so don't rate that one, use the Web link.

I originally wanted to add more enemies, and possibly more types of drugs, but hey, I only had 48 hours. I didn't have time to do music or sound effects or anything, so sorry about the silent game.

naxum - Indeed, I was planning on having some sort of 'Combo bonus' for doing that but didn't get around to it. :(

I like the graphical style and concept, but the gameplay was a bit lacking. Good work!

I could almost hear Marylin Manson's song: "I don't like the drugs, but the drugs like me." playing in the background.

Amusing little game. Got old pretty fast though

Fun concept and nice theme interpretation. Gameplay gets repetitive though. And trippy music would have been great.

Cool game, funny with great tripping effects, but kinda repetitive. I figured jumping behind the doctors would help, as one can hit them once before they turn back, but this doesn't help much. Nevertheless , it's quite good!

@marudziik - jumping behind the doctors is the way to do it, they can't punch you if they're in the air either, use that to your advantage ;)

DOOOOD another entry that needed only audio to be a 5 star for me!

All the different effects were very entertaining, but the actual game play got repetitive rather fast.

Quiet difficult to avoid getting beaten. Great idea and concept.
