humbug

Humbug by Pixel Continuous might seem like a traditional puzzle platformer, but how you solve each level is rather unconventional. (hint: remember, press p to pause!)

this game is too hard even WITH the walkthrough...

nogi1020 said...

where'd you find a walkthrough?

nogi1020 said...

and finished!!! Yeay!!!

This game is so silly; I like it ^_^.

I also can't get past the first jail scene. But since this is nogi1020's personal hint page, I won't be able to look here to find the answer. You see, nogi1020 came here to get a hint. He was hoping someone would post the n but once he got the answer, he came back again to say "never mind" -- and also didn't provide the answer to anyone else. In other words, it was important to nogi1020 to make sure the answer was not provided on this page, since it's for his personal hints only.

That's a shame. When someone gets past a hard part of a game, after they asked for help here, they shouldn't say "never mind" -- they should tell everyone else what the answer was.

And now *I* figured out the answer. But I will not say "nevermind". I will provide help to the next person. Hint: you can step on the instructions.

Ahhh thank you for that hint :)

A nice game. Really hard but it's fun to play. I just finished it (or at least I think so...). But neither I understand the ending (You win?) nor I found a secret item.
Can someone explain it please? Or tell me where to find the secret items?

One of the secret items is a dressage manual above the cannon in the upper right hand corner. I don't know where the other two are.

I don't get it at all. I guess that I'm just not smart enough for this one.

Debbie said...

Thanks, Bart! I liked it because it was different. Thanks to anonymous for posting the walkthrough link.

kjen said...

Walkthrough link is on the game itself, top right hand corner. Way too hard for me but heaps of fun!

Did anyone else see the major typo in the main post for this game? I think it's supposed to say "Pause" not "Pauze". :)

Anonymous said...

Actually, I think it's spelled "Paws"

Anonymous said...

can someone tell me how to open the last door? i can't pull the key. ):

Anonymous said...

pull the key by standing by it and pressing 's'

Is there a written walkthrough? I can't get the stairs to stay open. The video walkthrough doesn't really show how either.

My first walkthrough:
•step on the tree then the castle

•press "S" to actvate the switch behind the cage

•press "P" to pause the arrows

•set your strength to 9

•go to the other door then press "P"

•go to the switch. press "S" to pull it

•jump on the bricks then the sign. jump to the other side

• press "S" to switch the first swich NOT the second

•Wait for the cloud and jump on it

• press "P" and when you get to the bottom press "P" then when the cannonball goes close to you press "P" then jump on the ball and press "P" again.

• this one takes timing. jump to the platform. go around the tower.

•jump into the spikes and make your health 1

• drag "You are dead" to make a bridge.

•highlight the blue sign with the mouse until you see no. 2.


•hide inside the wanted poster.

• this one i can't explain. all I have to say is put your strength to 9 and at the end put it to 0

• go to the yellow thing and hold "S" while moving left. jump on the yellow thing. if you can't jump pull it out more

• you won!
