If you're having too much trouble with Turd of the Week, change your name to "shitbomb" submit your movie, and wait for the weekly awards

  1. ^#^#^#UPDATE TO VERSION 1.2

I have now added SAFE MODE. If your game crashes just reload the movie, and continue. Turn on safe mode from the main screen. Its effects are explained in the game. I also fixed some stupid spelling errors. Let me know if you still have problems!

Newgrounds Sim- A game where you try to build your NG profile in hopes of becoming a moderator, top portal artist, or better yet, an ADMIN. If you can do it on the real Newgrounds, you can pretty much do it here. Post on the BBS, earn B/P points, write reviews, and create and submit flash. Quick special thanks to NG's own Shrapnel as the voice of Tom Fulp, and ScaryDeadGirl for pitching in on the game's ending artwork. I've been wanting to try my hand at an RPG/stats-based type of game. So a few months and a couple thousand lines of actionscript later, here's what I came up with. Hope you enjoy playing >:)

Newgrounds Sim is a Flash Game by Afro-Ninja. It simulates the life of a Newgrounds user as he or she makes Flash, participates on the site, and levels up over time.


Newgrounds Sim uses RPG style stats in a similar way to other Simulation games. After creating an account, players can improve their Flash, Intelligence, and Cool in order to complete various tasks. The game runs on a day to day basis, and the amount of activity every day is limited by an HP bar. Like other attributes, Money can be obtained by working, and work and yield more money by accumulating more intelligence points. The money then can be spent to buy items to improve Flash skills. Flash Skills can also be improved by making Flash, and more complicated Flash requires more skills in order to unlock. Coolness is mostly used for participating on Newgrounds. Although the player can "beat" the game by becoming an administrator, there are twenty different in-game achievements that can also be unlocked. The game saves automatically.
