I'd already played this via Newgrounds, it's actually quite a nice to twist what are essentially are over-simplified QTE'.

Depending on which section you're playing the command or button press changes and you're only hint is the environment or the symbols above the characters head it keeps you thinking.
It's a decent game.

Haha, thanks Funk. I enjoyed that. It did get kinda frustrating at parts though.
Ahh well, it was relaxing before work.

That game was frustrating...
and the final boss really... annoyed me...
In the end, I just beat the boss as a boulder killed me, but it counted as my win :D
446 clicks... I think I'll stay away from this game unless I want to get frustrated...

I can't get past this one level with a falling spiked ceiling, it's so frustrating. That one level took about 700 clicks before I gave up.

Is it just me, or does Bob look suspiciously like Ranger Smith?

Is the final boss Yogi Bear?
Is this an epic quest to confiscate his pic-a-nic baskets?

I honestly thought the game was good, up until you had to start button mashing to get through, like the first boulder level. After that, things got progressively worse, obstacles that you could not have possibly seen on your first try show up more and more often and I gave up on the falling ceiling level.

Game mechanics can´t really get any simpler then this, and the music is just great. Very enjoyable 5 minutes.
Indeed. Certainly gave me something to do.

Uh, 248 clicks.
The music is surely the best part. Also, Bob is a great name.

I managed 350 clicks, the boss wasn't all that difficult so long as you timed it freakishly well.

It took me waaay too long to kill the boss but I'm still proud of my 429 final score. I know I'm capable of a third of that with practice though.

Is the last boss supposed to be unbeatable? Seriously, that shit is fucked up. I quit after 1200 clicks trying to beat the damn thing. I'm really pissed off now.

I actually helped beta test this game when the guy first made it. It's pretty fun, think my lowest clicks was like 200 or something.

Loved the music, but I feared for my mouse on the boulder level, I had to put two hands on the button and push as fast as I could to get past it. It took my over 800 clicks, because I kept dying due to stuff I couldn't see until it was too late.

Interesting. Iloved it until I accidentally clicked on teh FUCKING ADVERTISEMENT on the top of the window. Not anyones' fault but mine but dammit, I lost interest after that.

That's the thing when it comes to flash games for me, there's no replay value. I dont' care about a lower click count. I dont' like going through the last 10 levels I had just been in.

A bit tricky on a trackpad (macbook trackpad, no less) but still kind of entertaining. Friend showed it to me 'bout a week ago. He seemed to love it.

The guy in first is crazy at the game. How some crazy S.O.B. managed to beat it in 71 clicks is either sheer determination to be the best or blind luck.

Yay, 451 on my first try! The timing of the clicks on the final boss is just dreadful, and the jumps aren't easy to time either. Still, nice little time-filler.

Er, apparently you're the 7th "greetest". :)

Great thingy. I love how the music is all heavy metal even though the game itself is all cute.

Still, pretty much a lesson in game design. Although some zones required too fast clicking. If my mouse breaks I'll send them the bill...

Fun, took about 496 clicks.

Anyone else wonder reminded of Ranger Smith?
Somehow I thought the exact same thing.

I'm fairly sure he cheated. I tried, it took somewhere around 15 - 20 clicks to get through the first floor trap. By the time you get past the boulder, you should have somewhere between 70 to 80 clicks. The mashing ones combined can't put you below 70.

555 clicks. I'm quite proud of that score considering I didn't find out that the levels when you were on the floating platform would make you hover with one click until the last one of them (I kept repeatedly clicking). And yes, the boss was a pain.

Still, fun little game. I was a bit nervous that it would be just like last week's since it only used one button, but this was actually a very original and enjoyable little game (not that last week's wasn't).

EDIT: 242 with my newfound knowledge. I doubt I'll play it again, but it was a fun little time waster.

517. I had the same bombed-by-the-boss-but-killed-it-too win. Nice. Very reflective on the concept of the QTE and reminds me of Far Cry 2600.

I got to the falling ceiling level at 800 clicks and gave up at 2,000. It's fucking impossible, and this is coming from someone who can fire the dual elites in css so fast it fires at the same speed has an smg.

643 clicks, most probably spent on the boulder room and the spiked ceiling. Kept on pressing the RMB by accident.

For those ones, I had to hold the mouse securely on the table with one hand while tapping the button with the other. That seemed to work.

I suspose my problem is that I click it so fast it doesn't register properly and thinks I am just holding it down or something.
