Bernard & Hank is about the farmer Bernard Buffalo and his retired friend Hank Hoedown.
The evil businessman NationalLiberal wants his farmland, to build a factory farm on it.
He sends out his minions to steal the deeds to the farm. Bernard and Hank will have to
get this back, and they have to get rid of all the liberalminions. They will have to go
through 40 normal platform levels, 3 driving levels and meet 15 different enemies to do so.
The game is a bone-headed platformer with moving platforms, collecting coins,
jumping on fat people and getting shot by cowliberals. The game also contains some minigames,
to be unlocked by finishing levels.
I used a 52 colour palette for the gfx, because I felt like doing something different,
I have been using quite enough colours in my candy-ish Fishhead games.
Although this game took 15 months to create (we started in december 2003), only about
6 months were really spent on working on the game. We orinally started working on this
with 3 people: Matt Esch, Johan and me. More team members were added along the road, but
it all started falling apart pretty soon due to some non-click related problems.
Still, it was nice to work with these great people, and the game wouldn't be there without them.
If you download this game and expect this to one of the best click games ever, it will
leave you pretty disappointed. The game is so simple it is hardly there. The gfx are
simple, the sounds are simple, the music is simple, the gameplay is simple and paralaxing is nothing new.
If you expect a decent and fun game to kill some time, this will actually
make you happy. The game is pretty big, no standard movements were used, and all gfx, sound effects
and music are original.
The zip file also contains a configuration app (window size, backgrounds) and an instruction manual.
Please report bugs here, I will try to fix them all.
