So, Ego-friends. Did you make any life-affirming resolutions for New Years? No more smoking, boozing, adultery, perhaps?

He just jumps on their heads and crushes their entire souls. But not in this flash game, he doesn't. Sure, this is Not-Mario and Not-Goombas, to stop Nintendo sending out their battalion of winged monkey lawyers, but it gets the point across:

This anti-platformer is pretty damn clever, really. It's available on Steam now.
