Should probably plan for having to go to work next time. This game is the result of a theme I had no ideas for. I hope it you find entertainment despite it's flaws. Please report any bugs in the comments.

Every time I failed on the planning it doubled the required number of correct moves.. so I couldn't get 3200 correct moves in 50 seconds. Would have enjoyed doing more painting. Oh man, that dialogue though.. it was glorious.

I can barely play this game and I can't tell if it's because the interface needs work or because this is so funny. Either way, great job on the humor, but there are unfortunately a lot of problems. Sometimes my game just closed unexpectedly (when i tried painting) and the tactics game seems very, very hard. Still, I had a lot of fun.

The game crashed for me when I chose to paint and after the second successful planning stage, which makes it hard for me to appreciate this game fully. (I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, if that helps.)

I think the planning game is an interesting idea, but it would make more sense if you limited the keys to either the left side or the right side of the keyboard, since it's hard for me to cover the whole keyboard and move my cursor on my trackpad.

The white text on the pink background is hard to read; maybe use a shadow effect on the text to give it a distinguishing border?

As a game in its present state, it's not very fun, but it's a unique idea and it has potential.

Also fixed the crash after second planning, thanks FiveIronFanatic.

I will probably make a post compo version later this week with some of the features I just couldn't finish in time.

Funny, but the tactics game is too hard.

Being an anime adolf hitler really isn't my thing but the two minigames worked pretty well.

You killed me with the "hitler-senpai" XD
BTW - the title means "hitlers part time job" doesn't it? XD

Non-compo speaking I'm about to release a full-length visual novel free to play.. hopefully one day you'll play it =]

I think a few of the jokes went over my head, but surely an interesting concept. I got stuck on the planning though, I just wasn't fast enough... and it wasn't even close. I wonder what other things were in store if I could have gotten further...

Dialogues were great!

Guoboism, would you be able to run the game in cmd and post the error it gives you? It would help a lot. put the jar in your documents and run these commands in this order:
cd Documents
java -jar AdolfnoBaito.jar

Thanks!

Excelent theme usage! xD
The planning games was fun, but a bit hard since it could be any key...
My game also crashed after the second planning with the following message: Resource not found: res/backs/bunkBackdel.png
I want to know what happens with Hitler-sepai T_T Will he notice Joseph-kun??

Just uploaded a patch for that crash now if you want to give it a go! Glad you liked it.

Good sense of humor... Just a boring game.

The painting was cute, but the tactical maneuvers... I'd rather you do smaller numbers in less time than extremely long drawn out sequences you have to restart. 80 is just ridiculous.

But I'll admit, the well timed last bit before the crash made me chuckle.

Really wanted to play but I'm a techno noob (don't be fooled by the fact that I made a game - I used a non-coding toolkit) and I could figure out how to open the jar file :'(

Ah, if you're on PC you right click, go to 'Open with' and click "Java(TM) Platform SE Binary".
