That's a brilliant name! I've used Ben Boomerang but that sounds smoother! Thank you for playing!

Fun and hard at later levels.

Developer

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you!

This was really really fun! Loved the boomerang idea, and the woops and the jingle every time i beat a level xD  the end got really hairy, i got poon'd more than a few times.  Felt like i was in 300 Spartans, getting turned into a pin cushion xD

Developer

Oh gosh! Yeah t the very last couple of rounds it becomes extremely ridiculous! Poor Ben taking all the poons!

Love the idea, very challenging, got to level 30

Great job! Thank you for playing! (Level skipping is pressing the "P" button, for "Please skip this mess!")

[The ending is just a little text-message + snow effect though lol!]

Nice, but levels need to be more diverse.

Developer

Thank you for playing! The levels are actually procedural generated, and I only had time to make the system for essentially 1 type of wall! I completely agree with you that sometimes the levels can be very "bland" so I'm thinking of figuring out what I should try in future games!

I love the Sharky and Palp sprites! I really like the idea and think that it is very original. Throwing Sharky and then walking around to try to complete levels in as few throws as possible was really satisfying as well and I think it is a really nice touch that that works so well!

Developer(+1)

I'm glad you liked them! They were the first parts I worked on! Thanks for playing!

Nice game, looks easy in the beginning but gets challenging in the later levels. The artwork is really nice and the cat is really adorable.

The characters are really cute. A really good way of using Sharky & Palp. It is good seeing the other yogscast members in the game as well. :)

Developer

Thank you so much for playing! I'm glad you liked the Art!

Hilarious and fun game. A fun sidequest is seeing how many poons you can get stuck in Sharky in a single throw!

Developer

Thanks for playing! And yep! Sometimes I don't even bother with the presents and just throw Sharky at harpoons for fun! (am I evil?)

Submitted(+1)

Oh no! Pooned! 

A good game! I wondered what the difficulty was at the beginning, but it's quick to appear.  It's a great challenge dodging those 'poons. Cute little art too :3 even if you're only giving a couple of people presents.

Developer(+1)

Thanks so much for trying it out! I appreciate the compliments on the art!

Haha I love it! "Sharky & Palp". Such poon-dodging fun too!

Fun game! I love that Sharky boomerang animation. :D

Developer

I'm glad you liked it! I also hoped you enjoy the sound effects as well of Ben getting hit by a harpoon and their theme whenever a level started!

Submitted(+1)

I don't know if its because of me but I cant see any walls and somethimes I get stuck in them, the harpoons seems to do the same

Developer

Okay thank you for the feedback! Which browser are you using?

Google Chrome

Interesting, I just tested it out right now, and I somehow can't recreate the same problem! Sorry for the bugs!

Well done.  On theme and there were some surprisingly tense moments.  It'd be nice if there was more variation and presents and objectives, but I'm sure that's just a matter of time.

Developer

Thanks for playing! Yeah the time-crunch was real especially with me having to go to work during the Jam as well! I forgot to mention if you hadn't noticed, press [P] to skip a level!
