Can't figure out how to meet "mama" in the back room. There's a place where it says to push "Space" but when I do, nothing happens. :( Its a beautiful game, though. Love the graphics.

Is it glitching out for anyone else? He keeps getting stuck in corners and jumping with out me even doing anything. It's very odd. I like the game though. I'll play it again even with the glitches. :)

... I hate the level 4 and its key lights thing... It's impossible to desactivate them, it's too fast to do it for me !

~spoiler~

Wow, I don't know what happened but I left the game (at the point after mama told Skinny how to jump wall to wall?), and when I got back to the game, Skinny suddenly ended up in a some kind of tunnel underground (still in the same area) behind the locked gate, and he found a hidden item, a birdcage.

Hmmm..how did it happen? Is it a glitch? I left the game again, when I got back, Skinny was at the starting point of that level.


~spoiler ends~

im so stuck on the first part with the five batteries. i save two of the people but two of the entrances wont open and idk how to open them

Anonymous said...

I also can't get past the mama level. does anyone have suggestions?

Joaquin said...

I think spiders took a couple of marbles (that's what they do, don't they?), how can i get them back?! Please help. Thanks!

Joaquin said...

Never mindo, got them back. If anyone has the same proble, the thing is just to wait a while and find the spider again, she will have the missing marbles..

There seems to be a glitch. sometimes the robot just keeps moving left or right or jumping without me pressig anything. quite irritating actually.

Anonymous said...

Having same gliche problems with control. :(

Beat it. Yay! Hopefully there will be a "Skinny 2" ... as that ended in a rather unsatisfying way... I wanted to get Mama! rofl

palat said...

Love this game, excellent experience!!

Rava said...

CREEEEPY! But very nice!

Jonna said...

Help! I ´m in the place where is spiders, muta here´s one clift I cant jump and no turning back cause those lazers are so darn quick. Am I suppose to make it?

(great game thought)

maryposa said...

i am stuck at the infected waterways (the one with the spider) i cant seem to jump onto the next area. any hints?

Jonna said...

Figured it out. You have to go back as hard as it seems, you cant go to the next area without a reward.
Lazers are very hard but it helped me when I remembered that the arm is quite long so you dont have stand beside the switch.

maryposa said...

i am at the beginning .. no place to get back too. passed first lazer no probs, up elevator and spoke to mama, cant move forward from there, cant jump high enuff to get over board.

-k said...

The timing of the lasers is annoying. Have given up on playing due to their speed. Otherwise, very interesting game.

Jack said...

Control glitches like mad w IE9, Firefox had no issues.

Nice graphics, music, and gameplay.

I'll have to finish the laser-doors level later.

Anonymous said...

Was hoping the hidden secrets would give me another ending, but no. Nice little game though. Skinny 2?

Anonymous said...

why cant arrows be the controls too ! i'm not left handed & i have to use my left hand to move & i can't move & jumo as fast as i could if i was using my right hand :( & also the glitches are really making me upset

Anonymous said...

no glitches w/ Chrome. yay! Suck it IE! bwahahaha

Carrot said...

oo - tip for those with the glitches that make you run or jump repeatedly - just press the button that would control it - e.g. if he runs left, press the 'A' key. Nearly always works for me :)
Love this game except for the lasers in level 2 - so frustrating.

Anonymous said...

Where is the key in level 5?

karolina said...

great game! love it

karolina said...

there is no key in level 5. you have to use the blue laser to go to boy and last battery. it's preety hard i was jumping a lot:)

Anonymous said...

I can't even get past the "Mama's Nest" level!

Anonymous said...

I did not finish level 5 ... this blue gem thing was pretty frustrating

calculus_girl said...

How do I get to the boy and the last battery? I tried to hit the blue laser before I crossed the gap, but it had turned off by the time I got down there. Is there another one I'm missing?

Fantastic game, by the way. The only thing that bothers me is that the little girl screams every time you go near her, which gets grating when you're trying to land the same jump sequence over and over and over again...

calculus_girl said...

POP - never mind! It just takes some really fast moves. You actually want to hit the platform to make it start moving, and THEN hit the blue laser super fast. Then book it!

Anonymous said...

Way to glitchy. I can't get past the "Mama's Nest" level. The stupid robot keeps running past the globe that he's supposed to smash he also ran right past some of the batteries without picking them up. Using the "A,W,D, and SPACE" is quite hard. It would be nice if it could be changed to the arrow keys.

^^ @anonymouse SAME EXACT thing happened to me . i hadd to start all over & the save game thing doesn't take you back to where you were , i had to start the whole level over again :(

Anonymous said...

How do I reach the last person (on the platform) in the level called Felix's Hideout? I've already reached Felix a few times, but I can't get onto that platform.

HOW DO I JUMP FROM WALL TOO WALL??????????????????????????????????????????????????????:C :C :C :C :C :C

Anonymous said...

Jump up and press the right key while holding up. When you hit the right wall, let go of those keys and press the up and left keys quickly. This will make you spring off of the wall. It'll take you a few tries, but it's pretty easy once you get it.

Did he get trapped in the chair or did he kill mama?!?! It CAN NOT end like this!!!!

Bart said...

There's a new version now, that allows the use of the cursor keys! Cheers!

Anonymous said...

Even with being able to use the arrow kesy for the controls it's still extremley buggy.

F.Y.I. To everyone who started when the old version was on here you will now have to start all over from the very begnning. I just wanted to let you know.

Anonymous said...

Oops. *keys not kesy.

-k said...

This game is so much better with the arrow keys as an option. So glad he changed it! Thanks for letting us know about it. I would never have retried the old version.

Zuma Ezra said...

what were the three secrets? I only got the third one

Zuma Ezra said...

on another note: has anyone seen Thomas, the creator of the game? (I watched an interview on youtube) he's very attractive

-k said...

@ Zuma:The first was a birdcage, the second was a hook, the third was the tombstone. They all seem like they are references to Coma, but I may be stretching that a bit...

Anonymous said...

I'm stuck on the first level.. I have got around the whole level but I haven't seen a battery unless it's the thing that looks like an illuminated padlock that's behind a 'wood' 'fence' that the hook won't break and can't get any further where there's an arrow pointing up and right..

Anonymous said...

Aha.. just found the key that unlocks the padlock.. what do you do with the birdcage though?.. still no sign of any batteries..

ahhh! im stuck on trying to get to the last grown-up that is on the platform does anyone know how to get there

Anonymous said...

Stuck on the third lvl right now and cannot get the last battery . . . but so far, great game=)!!! Although there are many bugs, it is worth it to play through it anyway. This game reminds me of KOLM, for those who have played it, but I like this more because its easier to follow. Very good storyline, but very sad.

FINISH!!! GREAT GAME!! There has to be a skinnny 2!!!!

strfr said...

excellent game, love it! too bad it there is not more then 5 levels..

midge said...

How do you pass the laser by where his friend is buried? There's only one diamond? Please somebody? Help.

midge said...

I found out how to pass the laser at the bottom....through trial and errors and many jumpings....when you get to the "bridge" (by the tree) click on the blue diamond, get on the "glide" to get you across and jump off quickly before the laser shuts off and you get to the guy under the tombstone.

midge said...

Finally got to finish it after a long week on playing....it's too bad it doesn't save where you stop, for some reason I had to keep starting over....but hey, it's over. I loved it. Thanks Bart.

Anonymous said...

I got stuck - literally - on the level with the laser doors. where there is a marble above a yellow laser, and you have to jump off walls to get to it... when i was afloat up there i shot my hook downward, and in the course of that the laser came back... leaving me pigeonholed. I was enjoying the game, too.

Anonymous said...

Why isn't there a last boss level played in the System, where you have to kill Mama? This is such a cliffhanger ending...
