DoraHumbuggerPut on Lonely Island and do The Creep to get in the proper frame of mind to play with Ziggy Fraud one more time in Humbugger, the latest puzzle platformer from PixelContinuous. The follow-up to last year's gloriously weird and creative Humbug once again features shifty-looking Ziggy, the thief who defies the laws of physics and reality, and can't seem to stay out of trouble. This time, he's on the lam with his noble chicken steed who has to do a bit more than carry his creepy self around. Use the [arrow] keys to move, and follow the on-screen instructions for new abilities as they become available.

Humbugger features the same slightly off-kilter design and premise that made the original so great, with a slightly more updated visual style that makes the graphics look a bit smoother overall. Unfortunately, Humbugger features considerably more straight-up platforming and projectile dodging than it does funky reality warping. The one-hit KO and slow movement feel a lot more frustrating this time around, and while the off-beat concepts are still floating about and the game is still enjoyable for it, Humbugger doesn't quite capture the spirit of the original in the same way, but is still worth checking out for its distinctive style, setting, and concepts.

Play Humbugger


I got all the diamonds except 5, 6. Any help?


To reach 6,

go as far down as you can.

5 has me stumped too, though.


I can't get past the part when you take over as the chicken. The controls are too sloppy (or is it just me?). No matter how lightly I tap to jump, the hen still jumps repeatedly once she's reached the next little platform and always into the path of a cannonball.

I was about to rage quit when I told myself to give it another chance and just when I was almost at the top... the chicken decided to go right even though I hadn't told it to and it kept walking right and wouldn't stop.

I've tried it on a couple of different browsers and it seems buggy on both. Shame, because I really liked Humbug. Am I the only one experiencing problems?


The ending is very lackluster, and the final puzzle, while requiring a bit of creative thinking, is a let-down, to say the least.


I managed to do the final puzzle wrong, but still succeed. I didn't do what you were supposed to at all (judging by the walkthrough the game offers), I instead

just ran as fast as I could, and mashed some buttons to skip the speech at the end of the screen

Fun, but not as fun as the original, I do not think.


Can't get the diamonds from levels 5, 9 and 10, any tips?

I was so excited to see a sequel for what I voted as one of the best of 2011.

Then I played it. All the good stuff from the original seemed to get left behind leaving us with a platform game.

Every once in a while we would come to a puzzle but due to the platform focus, it was hard to make the shift into puzzle mode.

Didn't totally understand the diamond concept due to the mismatch between the level selects and the nature of the way you move through them but wasn't too interested in trying to go back and figure them out.


Oh, got the diamon from level 9.

I was trying to find a way from level 5, actually you've got to get in from level 4.


Oh, so I guess the power of posting strikes again.

Level 10. What doesn't work:

No clicking required, and you don't have to glitch anything.

What works:

Lower all of the platforms but the first one

Let me know when someone figures out Level 5's diamond... I've got all the others!

Patreon Crew SonicLover February 17, 2012 7:38 PM

Ha! Figured out the Level 5 diamond myself.

There's a brick sticking out of the wall above and to the left of the large hole in the wall. Hit it with eggs from above until it and a diamond fall out, then go reap your spoils below.

Dandy, no, it's not just you. I had a very hard time with that. I managed to get past the first tower, but there's a lot more of that, and it quickly becomes an excersize in frustration. Didn't know what to do with the second tower and gave up.

Thanks for the review, and feedback. This part was something like Humbug 1.5, and we'll make sure to use all the comments to make Humbug 2 as good as we possibly can.



Any one get diamond from level 11? I found the hidden area, but just can't seem to find where the diamond is in it.


Stuck after the second worm, can't get past either the bull or the well spikes, and while I backtracked I can't get anything else I see that appears.


Nevermind, I forgot this was Ziggy Humbug. ;)

Level 11 diamond:

After stopping the barrels, look above the three spinning blades at the beginning. You can stand on them once they're still.

zbeeblebrox February 18, 2012 10:14 PM

Hopelessly stuck at the (third? second?) tower. The one with the ghost claiming to have cookies. I don't have the faintest clue where to go.

zbeeblebrox February 18, 2012 10:23 PM

And of course, after posting that I'm realizing there's a big "WALKTHROUGH" button at the top of the screen :P
