First!

@ Bart,
Why this game? It's not up to your standard of games that you normally put on your site. Please bring back the good games. Also, please put your new game on here soon!

Bart said...

@Anonymous please step out of the anonymity :)

Jessica said...

I played this yesterday - it was nice and easy to play. I never could find how to get him to take a shower and get dressed for work though.

Don't listen to anonymous Bart. I love that you put different types of games on here.

Amazing!

@ Bart,
I'm allowed to remain anonymous if I want to. I like many of the games that you post. I'm just not a fan of this one. I'm also really looking forward to your new game.

Anonymous said...

Not very fun... I agree with the other Anonymous. It isn't up to the standard of games I've come to expect here.

Ewww! Just looking at the link photo makes me not want to play. It's just not right to have a photo of a fat, bald, guy in his underwear as the "Click here to play!" button. Ewww!

Jessica said...

Your criticism here is just going to hurt us all so GET OUT!
If you give Bart grief about a single game he selected to add here, it will just make him begin to question his choices and make him skip posting some good games for fear a few of you idiots will yell about it. So Shut up.

palat said...

Haha look there's two anonymous now, I bet they are the same :-)

Love your game selection Bart!

Yes Jessica variety is the spice of life :-)

Ouch. That's some harsh stuff. I love your games Bart! Keep up the good work!

Clarence won't jump! Plus, he's in his undies.... That's kinda gross this early in the morning! Anyway, how do I get him to junp high enough to get to the platforms?

@Jessica,
Be nice. They were just stating their opinion. You didn't need to be so harsh.

Bart said...

Come on people, there's no need to start a fight. If you don't like the game, just skip it ok :)

To jump use the space bar. The control info is on all the sign posts which you can read with the up kay. Cheers!

Poor kitty. I'm quitting this game. I'm not into games where you need to kill animals, even fake ones, to reach your goal. :(

@Bart,
When is your new game coming out? I can't wait much longer! :)

Bart said...

The new bontegame is coming, don't have an exact date, I will probably know more tomorrow!

Anonymous said...

YAY! I can't wait! Your games are always the best Bart! :)

Lilian said...

OMG! THIS GAME IS HILARIOUS!
Thanks for adding it, I'm extremily entertained at the moment. Poor Clarence obviously look like an ugly eagly in the sky.

Ah, if I laught anymore I'll die, haha.

Beth said...

Hey Bart, This game is silly and fun thank you very much.

I don't know what everyone's on about, this is a brilliant game :)

Kazz said...

Bart does it make a difference about the anonymity? My names Kazz. that doesn't mean you know me now...
Just wondering.

NotMarian (Anon, but with the creativity to make up a name) said...

I can't figure this out. I see how to jump and have read the sign posts, but I can't figure out how to get out of the first part of the game. I got to the far right side and climbed a ladder but it doesn't go anywhere. I also got a key but I can't get to the part above his bed where there is a lock.

NotMarian said...

Oops... made my name too long in that last one. I meant to write

Carly said...

Kazz: It makes it easier to communicate.

This game is indeed huge. I got out of Clarence's house and into a couple of others, but finally quit when I was swimming through a huge tank somehwere in the depths of this game. It would be nice to have a map, but without one I am uncertain how far I finished the game, and I just can't be bothered anymore.

Not bad, but definitely not on my faves list.

@NotMarian: Hold down jump while jumping on the bed to jump higher.

Anonymous said...

I love platform games. This is the absolute longest one that I have played. I love it though! I can't get to the last tooth. I'm gonna search for answers though. I will help others when I find out how. Thanks Bart!!

Anonymous said...

I'm back. I finally got the final 3rd floor tooth! Just jump on the mouse and it will make you jump higher and you've got it! Good luck! Thanks again Bart!

Taffimai said...

I can't figure out how to get through an upward bend in an underwater pipe. I've spent a frustrating amount of time trying to combine swimming and crouching and it just won't work. Anyone want to enlighten me?

Bri said...

It was fun and simple. Nice game overall

Rava said...

Great game, Bart! I like these exploring games with things to collect and "missions" to accomplish. Those who like this game should also play to Elephant Quest and Endeavor, for example. (But if you're bontegames-addicted like me, you should have already playede them! ;D)

Rachel said...

Taffimai...you can't. You have to go through it the other way. A sign will tell you that in one of the next couple rooms.

Anonymous said...

This game is great! I've been waiting for a while for the maker of this game to release it!! ^_^ You should post more of his games Bart :P

Anonymous said...

one question:
where are the tips in the house ... I have grown tires of searching them. I have the first and the third.

Anonymous said...

Five endings are :

Worst : Try to kill yourself, but you even fail that.

Bad : Alone forever

Average : Friends

Good : Friends, but may love another girl

Best : You get amrried with her !

Someone(haha) said...

I don't know how you can't like this game... I think it was a wonderful choice. Great for beating boredon. Thanks for the wonderful posts, and I can always come to this site knowing there will be good games to play!

Wind Lane said...

Only thing I haven't found is the last two facts on the girl that you get on the office level. Got everything else, but should have left the burger. :-)

Thanks for pointing this one out to us, Bart - it's pretty cool seeing a game of this size come out for free.

It was so horrible to be sucked into this game so thoroughly because of its length. But once I began I just had to finish, and once I finished I had to be a perfectionist and this game literally kept me staring at this screen all day long. and Most of my night. So, Im gonna go take a walk and see what is left of saturday, and not become a Clarence.
Great game.

@Not Marian where do you find the key?

Anonymous said...

I am stuck at the part in the living room where the infinite cats fly out of that tube.how to get to the ledge? It's too high.

Lexi said...

@ last anonymous
you have to jump on one of the cats' heads and hold down spacebar when you jump. you should get just high enough to make it to the ledge

mee said...

Where can i get the car in office's second floor?

Wind Lane said...

The car in the office building is actually in a secret area that then gets you into floor two and a half and then from there you can get the car to the second floor.

To get to the secret area go all the way to the top of the elevator shaft past the boss's floor and go all the way to the right of the little open area. You'll drop through a dark colored block and then you can go to the right into the secret area.

Jop said...

Hey Bart. Nice and humourous game, a great tribute to the sidescrollers that were ruling the 80's.
Does anyone know of a walkthrouhg for this? I'm stuck on the point where I need to call for a little pink car but I can't prevent it from dropping into the pond where it is no use to me.

Wind Lane said...

That's probably the hardest timing element of the whole game.

The trick is to press the button the exact moment the platform disappears. Then you'll want to run out there to meet the car and get into it before the platform disappears again. You'll need to hold the left or right (depending on where you want to drive the car to) as soon as you're in, especially since it'll be falling pretty much that quick.

You'll need to pull that trick off twice to be able to go both directions with the car.

It takes a little bit of practice since Clarence has to be standing still to get in the car, but it's doable. Get into the habit of holding the controls one way or the other as soon as you think you should be in the car so that if you don't make it you still land on a ledge. You'll have an easier time doing the trick over and over that way.

This game has locked up on me twice using two different computers. Even trying to exit and come back doesn't work, clarence is still stuck in a location on the screen not meant to have any characters. Any suggestions?

C said...

@ Wind Lane, there are two comments that are hidden amongst the computers in the office. The first one is in the room where Clarence's computer is (Floor 1 Room 2), and the other is on floor 2 1/2. Hope that helps!

C said...

@ Wind Lane, the other two are in the internet, just in case the two I just told you about are the ones you already have.

Me,Myself,andI said...

Can somebody help me please I can't find the pants!!!!!!!

C said...

@ Me,Myself,andI you need to go back to the first room in the house and one of the beds (I think it should be the first one you come across when coming back in from that direction) should take you to a ledge with a locked door. You should have a spare key. Go through that door, your pants are in there =)
