The goal of this simple action game is to catch the moving clown
by clicking with your mouse on him. Whenever you succeed your
score it raised. But watch out, the clown will also move faster.
How high a score can you get?

Fangame Awards 2022 needs to have a "Best Vibes" category just for this game :P

It's very interesting to see this kind of fangame nowadays with how heavily established each genre's standards have been, seeing this is a real breath of fresh air, and feels like it was made by someone who has a lot more experience than most makers as well as someone who has much more to offer than he leads on.

Renex never ceases to surprise me with his technical skills and general domination over anything related to GameMaker itself, I don't know anyone who has gone to the same extent that he has on studying through it and putting what he learned to work for his benefit and making fangames, out of everything else he could be doing, in the most efficient way he can. And it certainly shows in the style this game goes for, shooting for a certain nostalgic aesthetic as a sort of homage to older PC games from the early 2000's or 90's, and still keeping it chock full with stunning production and pure eye-candy all throughout.

I can't wait to see more out of this maker, who came into the community out of nowhere dropping fantastic games one after the other, with entirely different concepts and themes than what the community aims for. The variety in his portfolio is something I respect a lot, helping to build a lot of his own character in an incredibly short amount of time.

Highly recommend this game along with everything else made by Renex, specially if you're looking for a good and chill time with a game that tries something completely different in each screen. Definitely one of the makers I look up to the most in the community.

Love to see games that do something different and try new things. The car segment is definitely a highlight. Also enjoyed the frog puzzles. The production value is insane, and the game just oozes charm.

This is a very charming game with such a unique feel and style to it that you really can't help but smile when you play it (unless you're some kinda weirdo...)

I love the variety in the level themes, gimmicks, and gameplay. The game itself is relatively short but it still feels like a full package. There are some items you can collect along the way for an extra challenge but you don't need them to beat the game. And of course there's the driving segment, which is one of my favorite "time for something completely different" moments in recent fangame memory.

Also, for anyone out there who may have used the old versions of game maker, there's lots of references and easter eggs in here for you to enjoy. Most of the assets (I think) are borrowed from the stock library of game maker 1.0, which is a really fun idea for a game. There are also some genuinely impressive visual effects throughout the game that only enhanced the notion that I was playing something truly special.

Renex, you're one of a kind. I can't wait to see what else you have in store!
