Hammerin' Harry is a pretty simple platformer. Armed with a big hammer, you make your way through 5 levels, and the first 3 levels have bonus levels as well. At the end of each level there is a boss, and in some levels, there are also mini-bosses. In short, this game is a "normal" platformer, you won't have a hard time figuring out what's going on.

McBobX improves on the previous movie by 12.57 seconds thanks to more optimizations, some new tricks and lag reduction. For more info, we recommend reading the submission text.

Yeah, I'm already done optimizing this stage. You wanna know why? Because I made it boring. This stage sucks now. My life is in shambles.

Currently 48f ahead of the published movie due to actually reading the previous movies' submission texts and using the extended jump, some better enemy manip, and more importantly finding a double hit glitch on the boss. Kind of odd that none of the previous 3 people found it, considering it pretty much happens automatically if you do the hits as fast as possible. I guess I'm just special that way.
Info Download

  • You can kill 2 enemies at the same time with the hammer, even when they're on opposite sides of you! You need to time your attack well to pull this off.
  • Crouch attacks deal 2 damage to most enemies as opposed to 1 damage. The sole exeption is the stage 3 boss in the car, who takes regular damage from any attack.
  • By moving to the right (or left) and attacking each 6th frame, the game will think that you stand on solid ground all the time. This allows you to walk on air, and it can be used to get off the autoscrolling boat in level 3 faster.
  • The movement pattern of this game is 1-2-1-2, etc. If you jump on a frame where your subpixel position ($0438) is 128, your jump will be 1/2 pixel longer.
  • If you are in close range of an enemy, and you perform an earthquake shatter (do a crouch attack in midair and hit the ground during it) 1 damage is dealt. This saves much time on the first boss.
