3.9/5 (90 votes)

Hardboiled, from Tom Vencel at Ninja Doodle, is a collection of mouse-controlled mini-games. You get 5 minutes and 7 lives to complete 45 intense tests of timing, observation, and pure twitching finger speed. When you run out of time or lives, you'll learn not only that you're a bad egg, but exactly what type of bad egg you are.

Making grey?

So cuuuuuuuuuute! Even "making gray", although I was getting very angry before I realised you have to

open the door for them!

Also, if you play enough you get a prize! (A very little prize, but it's cuuuuuuute!!!)

Agreed on grey. I know what you need to do, but I can't figure out where to put the characters so that they'll stay where I put them.

I like the game. Perfect 4-second goodness.

The difficulty level is a bit steep, though. I didn't mind the "figure out what to do" levels - mostly because the game thankfully lets you repeat them after losing a life - but some level are really REALLY twitchy which can get frustrating. All in all it took me three tries to beat it, so I guess the game is not THAT hard, but I DID skip the last "green light" level.

As for it being non-kid friendly.. well, I dunno. I don't see a reason why kids shouldn't be aware of the difference between alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.. in fact, kids SHOULD know the difference. Come on, cartoon pirates drink rum, you don't think kids know what that is?? Birds and bees.. I don't know, I think that the point of that level would fly over kids' heads anyways. It's not like you SEE what is going on in there.. :) In any case, the difficulty level is most probably the most kid-unfriendly thing in the game.

Oh, and the secret password for beating the game really made me laugh.

I really love the 4-second games but this game I felt was like eggs. It stank and was probably quite unhealthy. Some of the games were very good, e.g. make a gray made me laugh when I figured it out, but for the most part the games were lacking in creativity and I felt that the controls were lacking/not precise (although that might be because I'm visiting my parents over the holiday and I'm not used to the mouse).

I'd give it a score of 2/5.

Site crashed too popular?

omg...i can't even do the first puzzle...but i'm totally not giving up!!!

Can somebody give me a list of the rankings and their descriptions? I'm missing two. I got:

-Century egg: You've been buried for a hundred years, and quite frankly, you stink!

-Raw egg: A total novice. The only thing that's stopping you from turning into a mess is that thin shell of yours; don't break now!

-Poached: A little boring, under control until one poke and you're all over the place! Get it together!

-Hard boiled: Couldn't remember the description...

The game seems to be fun, but I can't play it. The link brings up an error page, saying that the site was suspended, with a big banner on top which says "This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota". I'll try again in a few minutes, but in case it doesn't work, JIG should host the game, as has been done so many times.

Over and out!

Wow, in the time I took to write my previous comment, the site came back online. Oh, the magic of posting...

Reply

Nope, Donut, it's back again. I can't play the game because of the "This site has exceeded its CPU quota" banner.

Right, so, the first time I clicked on "milk" as a white, non-alcoholic beverage and got the "NOPE!" message, I figured it was a glitch. The sixth time, though? This game's got some bugs.

...ooor maybe I just can't read. Yeah.

If you get the message about CPU, just reload the page.

That was fun! However, I really think they should give the option to continue from where you lost -taking points away for example- because otherwise it gets a bit boring when you have to replay the same levels again and again... after five times I'm giving up.

how do you do make grey I know what to do but not how to get the characters there

Reply

Agreed. How do you make grey?

Reply

grey =

equal portions of red, green, and blue, but not 0% of each (black) or 100% of each (white).

Does that help?

Reply

No no no that doesn't help...
This is how you make grey:

First open the motel

You're the ultimate egg - solid on the inside with your tough shell holding you together - you've proven you an handle the pressure! Hard as!

I can only get as far as turning the stars white for the third time. Not sure how to get them all to stay white at the same time. Help!
