Haha, this is awesome very stylistic art and quirky vibe going on.. loved the splash screen! xD Wish my game looked this good, really nice gameplay mechanics and animations (particually the blood on the game over screen). Rated this one very highly. :)

I loved the gameplay and the colorfulness! may I ask how did you manage to stay concentrated for three consecutive days on a solo project?

Pol says ...

Polished, heh ? Well don't look at the source. This is the worst anti-optimized flash junk I ever made.

to sneak and to make a kamehameha are very fun in this game :)

@brogrammers : well I didn't plan to work on it for three days in the very beginning, so the two last days were just some kind of perpetual rush :B It was hard to stay focused even though I managed to sleep a few hours every night, but motivation wasn't an issue, so I managed.
But the point is that even if I worked alone, I wasn't on my own. Tyu ( and Pereubu ( were with me the first two days, and having someone to laugh with when high on caffeine is a huge help - even if it can make you lose the focus, of course.

Frantically furious frontier Flash game.

Very calm and relaxing interactive love story. 10/10.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:12pm

hahaha funny graphics and i like the concept, i like music too but....My fingers hurt!!!!

Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:24pm

The decent into absolute absurdity was awesome. Took me a few tries to figure out you had to press space to jump on the train. I kept outrunning it. Good game!

The graphics are really good, but the gameplay is finger-hurting.

Epic idea butttt how does it fit with the theme?

TeamFlare says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 1:23pm

Very simple concept awesomely well exectuted. Loved the whole humor and graphic style. The death animations are just hilarious :)

Nice Art but how can you get onto the train, i was even faster than the train but then it overtook me again and i lost.

haxpor says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 1:29pm

Nicely done. At first I thought that I have to run a race with a train, but it turns out that I need to grab that ladder.

One of the better 2-buttons-run game I ever played. Controls works fine in the game, but sneaking is really hard. Anyway is fun and polished!

Pinktreeleaf says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:00pm

very artsy. too bad im not good enough to beat this ;_;. I like the more unique approach on controls. reminds me of quop or the nes olympic games.

kristof says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:12pm

Haha! This is pure fun! But god is just too hard for me :D

Pol says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:38pm

Oh yeah for thos who don't get the theme thing : each session of the game lasts 10 secs or asks you to be quicker.

You sure know how to have me playing your game. Well whatever, it's worth it.

This game is incredible. Loved the humour, the graphics and sounds and the gameplay.
Unfortunately I couldn't beat it, that last sequence I just can't reproduce on my keyboard (maybe I could do it if I had a flat one), but I had loads of time none the less.

Pol says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:46pm

Oh dang, I didn't think about the flat keyboard vs not flat keyboard thing. It must be much harder without a flat keyboard 3:
Guess I'll upload an easier version this week end for the people who, for any reason, cannot beat the game.

Very nice! Haha a little hard to control everything though.

Suese says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 1:21am

Just couldn't make it past the first screen no matter how fast I went. Out-ran the train and it said 'too slow'. Looks good if I can get past that bit.

Pol says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 1:36am

*whispers in your ear* you have to press the space bar once you are at the ladder.

Haha, wow that is some game! The controls and gameplay were crazy - which I think was intended - but it was really fun to play! Really humourus too!

The graphics and animations were simply fantastic. Really impressive.

Aug 31, 2013 @ 7:50am

Fun, amazing graphics and music! It *may* be a bit too difficult. Despite the explanation given in the comments(that each game section lasts 10 seconds) I feel the theme is not too strong with this one.
The game is quite well crafted though. The level of polish this game has is breathtaking. Top entry!

5 stars for fun :)

Pol says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 10:25am

Thanks for the feedbacks Tim, I tweaked a bit the easy version according to them. Now there's no excuse for not getting the spacebar thing anymore. And it's easyer to understand what to do when facing daddie Goddie. Just Sayin' Hehe.

Superb graphics, especially the character design!

The music in the beginning is nice, but pretty short - it gets annoying over time, especially because you have to start again when you die.

Sadly, it's also a bit too hard for me. That combined with the restarting - I didn't get far :(
Could you make a gameplay video so that I (and maybe other inept folks) can see what comes further? I want to know what happens!

Pol says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 1:17pm

You got it.

Lovely graphics and congratz for the plot, the Miss Sheriff is a beautiful character. Also like the mashup that is the music.

Funny, gorgeous, punchy game. Everything you need. :3
