    Indeed I will, good Sir :)
    Congratulations on a fun AND funny game!
    John Blobbo for President!! He has the looks, already XD

    Thanks man, but needs tones (or a pair of megatons :P) of work yet. I'll "finish" it only to upload something.
    I'll talk to John and pass him on your wishes :D
    Thanks again.

    Chrome says this appears malicious and won't let me play :(

    Not sure where to start with this... why does a blob leave footprints? Where do those doors go?

    Fun though, in a slightly odd way. Liked the story.

    PS I also got the Chrome "appears malicious" message, just expand the menu and choose "keep" instead of "discard".

    Thanks to test (or to try to test :P)!!!
    I'll just change the downloadable file (I put into a .rar), it seems that chrome (and sometimes gmail) doesn't like the exes, boooo!
    Thank you for the info. And the rates of course.

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 23, 2012 @ 7:27pm

    @Jeffalisk It's a blobmarine dissuassive technique: Blobbo paints footprints corresponding to a 56 size (aka. sasquatch size), when the enemy see them runs like a chicken crying to mom. This is one reason, the other is... err... mmmm... I WANTED FOOTPRINTS, IS MY GAME MAN!!! :D

    Yay - a game I can finish! Funny :)

    Apr 23, 2012 @ 10:08pm

    That was sooo good! I loved every part of it, except the movement getting caught on corners and stuff but other than that you rock and i had a fun time.

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 6:41am

    @Beerman: then you'll love the sequel, where you'll push the space key in the menu and be sent to the victory screen directly :D THANK YOU to your minute and a half (the time to finish the game - may I consider this information as a spoiler?) :D
    @RiamuDiMentis: hehe... hahahahahahahahahahahahahahhoohohohohohoho... it's true that the laugh is contagious. THANK YOU SO MUCH MAN!! ;D
    @ben: Blobbo had made an appointment to the ophthalmologist because he doesn't see the corners and had bought one hundred hectoliters of bleech to clean itself and not be so sticky... and I've made an appointment with my chair in front the computer to fix this bug :) THANK YOU for playing and to have a good (and brief I guess) time :D

    Thanks to all!!

    10WonXero10 says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 11:15am

    Yeah, this was good.
    Not at all what I expected from the title screen.
    My only gripe would be the need for more audio (sploshy walk sounds maybe) and the corner collisions.

    Apr 24, 2012 @ 1:34pm

    What the hell did I just play?! :o

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 1:53pm

    @10WonXero10: totally agree with you I didn't expected what this finally is :D ...

    @Zamando: the best game since DOOM, and at the count of three you will wake up... one... two... XD

    Thanks for playing and for the patience :)

    Apr 24, 2012 @ 6:05pm

    VERY glitchy bro. I ended up face palming and ending the game when things started to balls up.

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 6:48pm

    @Zoomyzoom Glitchy? Nah, sure? you must be mistaken, my game is perfect :D
    Your right, I needed 48(thousand) hours more to end the game properly, well, to make it a game, I mean. Thanks for testing and comment :)

    omaha says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 7:40pm

    I couldn't get past the first level. what was blocking my way? Did I need to pick something up? How do I interact with the bright yellow blocks that pop up in some parts of the level?

    schizofunky says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 7:41pm

    Nice spaceship! I couldnt figure out how to get through the doors but i liked the mechanics of dodging the lasers and robot!

    VDOgamez says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 7:54pm

    It took a bit to figure out what I was doing, because I assumed that the doors were where I was supposed to go, until I lit up one of the blocks. The game is painfully bugged, however. The lasers don't hurt you, they just kind of make the character bubble for a moment and make a noise, and it's difficult to turn because you keep getting stuck misaligned from the hallways. Halfway through lighting up blocks I inexplicably got a message saying that I had won, and I'm still not sure what's going on. The graphics are kind of nice looking, especially the spaceship on the title screen.

    tcstyle says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 8:27pm

    Something is wrong with the controls (got stuck regularly on corners). And I couldn't open the doors.
    It's a pity, cause the game looks nice.
    And while I scan the comments... what the hell did I do wrong?

    Apr 24, 2012 @ 8:29pm

    Really confusing, nowhere it was told what you were supposed to even do, the lasers don't do anything expect make noise and spawn robots, and half way through I got a message I won.
    Very weird little game.

    barigorokarl says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 9:00pm

    HAHAHA! Very cool, I like such stories. Ok, I couldn't figure out what these laserthingys are that wander the corridores. I like!

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 9:22pm

    First things first: THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL for playing, vote (I guess that not with high marks, don't worry this game doesn't deserve them) and especially for taking time to comment, I really apreciate it. :D

    @omaha Yes you can't, my intention was to put some object to open it, but I got out of time :(

    @schizofuncky Thanks I'm glad you like the spaceship and sorry for the doors, but my "game making level" needs more than 48 hours :'(

    @VDOgamez yes, I didn't explain anything nowhere, thousand million apologizes. The laser don't and won't hurt you because are "presence" detectors that activate an alarm and a robot. Painfully bugged? Yes it is, have to fix it. It makes me happy that you like the graphics

    @tcstyle I'm pleased to know that you think that is a pity because the game look nice and what did you wrong? Visit this entry :D... just kidding visit me all the times you want :P

    @adventureislands I only can answer with: is true, is true, is true, true and true.


    I insist thank you very much :D

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 24, 2012 @ 9:25pm

    @barigorokarl THANK YOU to give me the chance, man!! :D

    Can't open the door :)

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:17am

    @Drabiter You don't want to see what's behind the door :D
    Thanks for playing and comment :)

    Raptor85 says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 12:51pm

    interesting but the controls were a little stiff, kept getting hung up on corners

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 4:42pm

    @Raptor85 thanks for play it and comment! Yes, it's the first bug that I will hunt, now that I after few days of resting, I'll continue developing until Lapootah become a game. :D
    Cheersand thanks again!

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 5:16pm

    This is actually a fun game. Once the kinks are out and contains more levels, I could play this for hours. :P

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:18pm

    Cute. No idea why I won though.

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 6:19pm

    HAHA it's still a funny game, I could watch the blob with his footprints for hours. Why the hell has he footprints (yes, i have read the answer xD)

    kroltan says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:24pm

    Nooonsense! Plus, the scanners (or what they seem like) don't do damage? And the other robot got trapped in the corner because of clever footprint placement. And I didn't know that i had to run around the rectangles.

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:26pm

    @Nahya Thank you so much for playing! :D I hope I'll give a new link with some improvements (tons I mean :D) to make more playable and without movement bugs this "game" as soon as possible... and, by the way, take out the "" of the "game" word.
    Thanks again!!! :D

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:43pm

    @bastiandantilus Don't worry where I send you the price?

    @Canard Sauvage Did you like the footprints? No problem, I'll talk to Blobbo and we send you a paper with a couple of footprints dedicated :)

    @kroltan No, they don't (this shipment had come pacifist), are simply presence detectors that activate robots (well, one robot)

    All these things will be explained in my future book "The Epic Adventures of John Blobbo the space blobmarine" that you will able to Kickstart soon (I'll think to pledge about three millions of euros. Or pounds. Or dollars, this doesn't matter me :P)

    Thanks to all for playing and comment, I really apreciate it (and I'm not joking).

    Endurion says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 7:02pm

    The story and graphic is quite nice.
    It took me a while to figure out what to do. For others: You need to make step traces around blocks to examine them. One of them has the stolen planet in it.

    The controls are a bigger problem, you do get stuck on corners, sometimes foot step images do not appear. And I would've loved to see other screens.

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 7:10pm

    @Endurion Thank you very much for play and comment! You have explained better than me the objective and the purposes of the "game"... you have explained the objective and the purposes, me not. Period. XD
    You are right about the controls, in fact my wife every time that reads "control problems" here slap me in the neck ¡ouch! So I'm continue working in the game, I hope I can come here sun with a new version.
    Thanks again Endurion!!

    Another blob game !

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 7:24pm

    @blob The blobs will destroy and rule the world the December 21th, the mayans said it. Or maybe rule it first and destroy it later... nevermind, thanks for play it. And comment. Cheers! :D

    Apr 27, 2012 @ 5:38am

    Loved the final score calculation. :D

    Nice and quick and looks good, though I was not exactly sure why I won how I did. I also ran into the trouble with corner collision as well. Still, good job!

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 11:32am

    @johannhat Thanks for playing this...thing :) I'm currently working in a new version with some innovative issues: instructions, more than one levels, doors that allow access to that levels, unsticking blobs, non idiot enemies and a concept that I'm creating and I will patent, I'll call it "thingstodotohavefun". Now seriously talking, I hope in a few days (ha...ha...hahaha) I'll back here with something playable, another question is if the people that have played this will give it a try (my wife for sure, even though I'll have to go shopping :S).
    THANKS for play and commenting! I owe you one! :D

    Ranoka says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 10:21am

    This game is crazy, I love the wacky humor. The game didn't say what to do but I quickly recognized that it was like Boxer Rebellion(Dos)/Brush Bros etc. So I got to work. I thought the ending was quite funny. Shame there was no sound, and my blob was getting stuck on the wall, but good work for the time limit!

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 30, 2012 @ 4:50pm

    @Ranoka: as the Dorcbolledans (a hiperclever and superwise alien race :P) say: "Blobblobblibblibblebblob" ("Thanks for playing and commentING" in english). If I was as good making games as writting bullshit I could make brilliant games as Duke Nukem Forever... ups!
    Thanks Ranoka for trying and for your patience :D
    Cheers!
    PS.-I'm better game designer/developer than musician, so imagine if I put more than one note...

    "Unexpected error when playing the game" :(

    orgarus says ...
    Apr 30, 2012 @ 8:22pm

    @Andrew: D'OH! Does this error appear during the loading? or during the game? If you want tell me more details I'll try to find a solution. In any case you are lucky so you don't have to play this s*** :D ... in the other hand you never know that the murderer is the butler XD err... spoilers before.
    Cheers and thanks for trying.

    Uhm, do those lasers do anything?
    The joke at the endscreen was nice.

    MrDanH says ...
    May 1, 2012 @ 12:29pm

    A bit fiddly getting around corners, but entertaining nonetheless

    orgarus says ...
    May 2, 2012 @ 3:06pm

    @ratking: yes, they call (summon as well) another kind of robot. I'm glad you like that joke, I doubted about to put that or this one:
    "-Mommy, mommy! Are the farts heavy?
    -Not!
    -Then I have a shit"
    ...I have a shit with this game anyway :D.

    @MrDanH: I'll polish that corners with my teeth if necessary :). I'm glad you've been entertained.

    Thanks both for playing and commenting! :)

    Cheers!

    Too bad it's not finished, the ending was funny. Controls were a bit rough though

    @rvmook You are right, to not finish things it's a bad habit I have :(
