The Game

A chiptune version of the Trogdor song plays. After a short animation of Trogdor chasing a peasant across the screen below the title, the instructions come up:

Squish all the peasants to gain burnination!
Then burninate 3 cottages to fight the Kerrek!

After this, the game begins. On the web version, the controls are arrow keys or the A and D keys to move, Z to jump and advance text, X to shoot fireballs, Shift to mute music, and Backspace to rewind gameplay. Touching or jumping on a peasant will squish it, and the latter will make Trogdor float briefly. Touching a knight will send Trogdor back to the beginning of the level, which includes revoking his burnination status. Thatched-roof cottages, stumps, and rocks must be jumped over. Squishing all the peasants will make the following text appear:

You achieved burnination!
Press B to thoom out sum fireballs!

Shooting fireballs at 3 of the 4 cottages will bring you to the Kerrek fight. The Kerrek's attack pattern is to move forward, jump and throw an axe high, move back, jump, throw an axe low, and repeat. To dodge, Trogdor must stand below high axes and jump over low ones. If Trogdor touches the Kerrek or his axes, the battle restarts. Victory is achieved by shooting at the Kerrek's horn 10 times. While the Kerrek is standing on the ground, this can be done by jumping and shooting a fireball just before Trogdor lands. The Kerrek turns green with X's for eyes and makes a low-pitched sound when hit, and lies down when defeated. After winning, a picture is shown of Trogdor laying a foot on the Kerrek, accompanied by the text "YOU SMOTE THE KERREK!". The scene then cuts to Trogdor in a cave with a Keeper of Trogdor.

Congrats Trog. You won. Happy Togday!
This was goodending.
With good text boxs n allat.

After this, the game resets.

Fun Facts

The ending screen

Trivia

  • The full itch.io description reads:

It's Trogdor's 19th Trogday and he's out to smote him a Kerrek. Squish all the peasants while avoiding the knights to achieve burnination. Then burninate all the cottages to face off against the Kerrek himself.

It will all get great when a Trogdor-type game is the game that you are playing.

Controls:

  • D-pad to move
  • A to jump
  • B to shoot fireballs (once you have burnination)
  • SELECT to mute music
  • Originally released for the FunMachine Pantsit portable console (technically it was too big for a pocket, so they went with 'pantsit' instead.) but it should be compatible with any GameBoy Color-type deal.

*Audio may not work on mobile.


Install instructions

If you have a GameBoy emulator, the .gb file should run in it. If you have a flash cart or one of them fancy new portables that'll play old GameBoy Color games, the .gb file should run on that too.


  • The shortened itch.io description (seen on Videlectrix's page) reads "A tiny game to celebrate Trogdor's 19th Trogday!".
  • The "More information" box lists the status as "Released", the platforms as "HTML5", the author as "Videlectrix", the genre as "Platformer", and the tags "Game Boy ROM", "homestar-runner", "strong-bad", "trogday", "trogdor", and "videlectrix".
  • If Trogdor falls into the third pit, he will come across a Keeper of Trogdor. If the Keeper is approached, he will give advice on how to slay the Kerrek. If Trogdor moves toward the exit, he will return to the start of the level.
Thou hast DIED Trogdor! Dang!
I can resurrect thee but first
Here are some hints to aid in your style!
Kerrek takes like 10 hits.
Weak point is his horn.
Now go froth! I mean forth!
  • When playing on mobile, virtual buttons in the layout of a Game Boy Color appear below the game.
    • When fullscreen is exited, the buttons appear transparent over the game.

Remarks

  • When select is pressed to mute the music, it will restart after dying.
  • You can kill peasants just by walking through them
  • You appear to have infinite lives

Fixed Glitches

  • Originally, the same cottage could be burninated repeatedly to get to Kerrek.
