the originality and sense of humor in this game are things rarely seen these days and although it had its bugs the overall expierence of being an octopus disguised as the father of a family of 4 is an idea i find hard to hate and not laugh at....

For some reason the game is oddly addicting and just hilarious because of the visuals and sound effects. This is the most fun I've had on a game.

This game is amazingly fun. A bit short, but the premise is hilarious, and so is the gameplay. The visuals could use some work, but for the most part, they are very good, sort of cartoon-esque. One of the best platformers I've played in a while. I'm really looking forward to updates.
