So, today I got front-page'd with the wrong game.  Wizard Hand Fork Left

You see, while "Tom Sennett, Procrastinator" is a cool and groovy thing, I happen to be releasing a NEW game today. IT IS NAMED:



And it is about The Bomb going off.

In this game you can take a shower:


And you can also get blown to bits by a nuclear weapon:


There are other things to do too. It's a platform game that plays out in a series of 5 second challenges, where you have to do something different each time.

I'm proud to say this is my first sponsored Flash game.  Hand Money LeftWizardHand Money Right
I've got a primary license with 2Games.com - ended up being a sweet deal. Fame and fortune are, I've been assured, forthcoming.

So, uh
PLAY IT NOWWWWWWWWW

Kinda HOLY GOD frustrating at times.

Especially when you are literally a tenth of a second away from a goal. Happened to me three times on my second playthrough. I really dislike a few "levels", especially the beer for girlfriend, simply because of the trap guy. The half second it takes to even recognize where the hell you are is usually the half second in which you have to move, which seems rather irritating. Skateboard over mail truck is irritating due to the whole "suddenly inertia applies" thing, when it doesn't in any other levels. Boxer is not explained at all, I got it by complete chance. I still can't get the blurred level.

76% on my third playthrough.

It's not at all bad, everything controls well and the challenges are well made, it's just that some challenges are rather...challenging to accomplish within the five seconds.

Every time I read the title I have to think of this for some reason.

The game is pretty sweet though, I like micro game collections like that. But personally I think the explosion could've done with a bit sound and/or animation. The music gets really, well, annoying after some time, but muting it isn't so great either since it just isn't the same without it. So yeah.

I like it.

I didn't know green explosions were better than red ones.

I may be thinking too much.

Agreed, it is pretty fantastic.  It reminded me of :The Game: (http://www.maxgames.com/play/the-game.html).

Animations were silly and I really didn't mind too much for failing a level.  I just wanted to see what you had next in store for me.  :D

Whew! 73% was the best I could get. I think the only one I couldn't figure out was the blurry one. Anyway, it turned out great!

Yeah, I was pretty sure I saw this somewhere before, which weirded me out a bit at first.

i cant figure out what to do in time though, i think it should be clearer, via arrows, or colour cues or something..

cool game though, i dig the idea loads!

I really like the idea and the game in general. Comparable to some WarioWare games, but just in 5 seconds or somewhat.

Thank you for the awesome words everyone.

Has anyone gotten 100%? I don't think I've ever gotten it in one round...
There is a secret ending if you do.

73% too, I think. No idea how to succeed at the blurry level.

I thought that this is a cool idea, mainly the irony in it. Who cares if you win or don't? 5 seconds later you get blown to pieces, anyway Shrug
I also agree with the suggestion by someone at IndieGames.com, that it would be really nice if you only slowly found out that after these 5 seconds a bomb goes off. But that's for another game, because this here wouldn't be the same that way.

It reminded me of :The Game: (http://www.maxgames.com/play/the-game.html).
Oh, I get it, it's supposed to tell me that Global Warming sucks? (Why does that level suck so much, why?)
