    Shouldn’t he be throwing pens? I can’t see James wasting beer like that.

    The best of all fan games! I like the style, the music and how James helped in the development. Great job!

    It’s actually a good game. The only complaint I have is how on most of the levels, you jump from building to building or something and while you are in the air, a tire or fish thing comes from no where and knocks you off. It doesn’t even give you a chance. You have to know it is coming and the only way to do that is to die by it.

    Put in options to change the controls, as my left wrist hurts a lot after playing 5 mins of this game. Having H, U and I as shooting and jumping aren’t good. This fucking game gives innocent gamers Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Apart from that it is a good game 😉

    Use Joy2Key (a free program) to configure keyboard controls to your usb controller. A wired X360 controller works wonders in this respect. I play Eric Ruth’s games–including Pixel Force Halo and L4D–with this controller and it works like gangbustas.

    It needs to be an android app. Check steam’s GameMaker android export version. Going to e-mail this to you too. This game needs to be mobile man if its payed for or not I don’t care. It needs to be mobile. I’m already influencing a game company to make the choices to android as well. The company is called Phoenix Online. Check out there games like silver lining. Thanks James you deserve the best of the rest as in the gaming industry. I’ll be sure to add your name to the list. Thanks again Stephane
