The engine of this game is a little bit outdated, but it suits the game very well.
It's a fast-action-platformer. Nothing complicated, except for some levels.

Some of you may have played the pre-release of this game.
The game hasn't changend much, the pre-release gives a good example of this game.
My aim for this game were 100 levels (like super mario world).
The fact is, I didn't came anywhere near it.
I hope you like the fourty levels, divided amoung ten worlds.

That brings me to the graphics, which is all pixel art, except for the backgrounds which are custom high-colour gradients.
I've uploaded nine screenshots on my website.
There is a trainig level which should help you explaining the basics.
If you need to pull a switch, try pressing DOWN.

There are about seven enemies in the game.
But hey, i didn't say they're all different.

The story line is short, this Fishhead steals your precious hammer when you're sleeping.
And it get's even worse, because he's driving away in your beer truck!

Installation is easy, you can either download the zip file or the 7-zip file.
Just extract the files from the compressed file to a folder somewhere.
And double click the exe file to play.

Uncompressed size is about 7 mb. Compressed size is about 1.4 mb.

Have fun! I know I did while making this game.

Potentially quite good but let down by an extremely bad (default?) movement system.
The enemies dont appear to be bothered when they are shot (until their health reaches zero) I hate this kind of combat; also used in the diabolical "Tomb-Raider" games.
The rest of the game is OK, the collection system and sound effects are decent enough.

gfx remind me of fishhead

This is good.
It seems a little old in comparison with the Stuff hayo did in Fishhead 4. But it's good fun anyway.

Wow, well done on finishing it Jenswa... will dload later on tonight!

It is the default platform engine, but modified slightly. I would assume that Hayo gave him FishHead3's engine, but I'm probably wrong there.

Anyway, it's not bad. The level design seems a lot smaller, but other than that its a very worthy FishHead clone.

I didn't give him the fh3 engine, actually he started this game when I was still working on fh2
Posted by AndyUK 16th February, 2006

I thought so.

To be honest i didn't get far and what I did try reminded me of FH2.
