The game starts at the end of the level, I'm pressing right and winning the game in 3seconds :P
Well but that might not be a bug If You intended to make "hobbit" themed game - There and Back Again.

Nice graphics and sound.
I tried walking off screen as the first thing too.
A tad difficult.

Thanks for the feedback :-D.

I tried to balance the difficulty but, since it's too short I decided to make it a bit hard. Jump on enemies or use your ammo wisely :-D.

It's a real hog on my system... it was unplayable and the music was continuously skipping. It looks fun, so I made the window to be much smaller, but the music still sounds... very odd. Then I found out my controls don't work.

What PC do you have, it should work on very low specs!

Looks really nice, but a bit hard for me. I wasn't capable of passing three dinosaurs on screen at the same time :)

Nice art. Sadly it's very easy to get killed instead of hitting the head. But anyways well done!

Thanks a lot guys for the feedback :-D. I'll try to provide the HTML5 version for those who don't have Java JRE7.

Nice entry, and good grapphics.
Appart from killing them,landing on enemies head have absolutely no interest if you are not bumped in the air ! And also those dinosaurs seems extremely fragile to fist sized rocks... :)

Awesome graphics. The gameplay idea is quite good, but I feel it needs some balancing: stone throwing is very slow and character is quite hard to control. Have you based the movement in physics, maybe?

Anyway, very solid entry for the compo.
