Tontie is one of the most addicting games I have ever played. In this game, you whack aliens by pressing digit keys on the number pad corresponding to their positions. The aliens become more diverse and the game gets faster as you progress through the levels. It took me a week of gradually improving my skill to be able to reach and later beat level 20.

Some remaining Tontie challenges for myself:

  • Using the second code (start at level 11 with winged silver hammer and 5 hearts), get all upgrades and reach level 20. Right now I have a much easier time if I start on level 1 (without a code), because I can usually get a golden hammer by the time I reach level 11. But levels 1-3 are boring, so it would be nice if I could skip the first 10 levels.
  • Get from level 11 to level 20 without using any continues, starting with no code or the first or second code.

    Congrats on beating the game — how do you do it?? It took me so long just to get to level 20, and of course, I then ran out of continues! Thanks for writing about tontie, I was glad to see that on your blog :o)

    I beat level 20 today by ignoring weak enemies (missing them doesn’t hurt much), getting a ray gun, and getting a crystal heart shield.

    What do u mean by “weak” enemies…

  5. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    By “weak enemies” I meant “enemies that don’t cost you much life to miss”. When each enemy is introduced, you can see how much life you’ll lose if you don’t squash him. (You can also review this information by pausing and using the 4 and 6 keys.)

    Are you having any problems with version 1.0? I can’t seem to load it, or the eyezmaze website?

  8. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    No problems here.

  9. Zach Says:

    Yeah, I can’t access the page, and there isn’t a mirror for it ANYWHERE. Like a hundred sites have the beta version, NO ONE has the damn new one. This is genuinely pissing me off.

  10. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    I have no trouble accessing the official Tontie site. I tried mirroring, but if I load the .swf from anywhere other than the normal location, all I get is blank blue square except for a bar with “Eyezmaze | Level 1 | Score 0”. Any ideas?

    i am an avid player of ver. 1.0, but lately the site won’t display….i can’t even get to display

  12. Toothizmz Says:

    I think this is the only existing mirror. You are right about the SWF, it is coded not to work anywhere but the original site. I reverse engineered the code, and then put it back together, but when I did, just some minor text problems, the text is a little off center and I have no idea what font he used.

    It’s pretty easy to get over, because version 1 is way better. My friends and I are addicted to this game, but have never got past level 20! The eyezmaze site has been down for a few weeks, I was desperate to play along with some other’s.

    Here’s the only working mirror I know of:

    I paid the author the $$ tip to get my own home version of tontie. he well deserves it.

    I just beat Level 20. It wasnt too hard because I just used the gold hammer with wings and kept hitting the boss really fast and when a tree house came up, I clicked that. Which gave me a little break. And after you leave the tree house, the board is empty again . So then I just hit the boss really fast and when the treehouse came up, I went inside. I just kept doing that and I beat the game!!!!
