Tricky Phase 3 Gameplay Details – Everything We Know
Tricky Phase 3 comes off from an animation by Bandbuds joined by Moro along with KadeDev, Rozebud, and Cval on the programming. Rozebud, Jads, and Yingyang bring the music for the mod. The week opens up with the clown making its presence felt right from the depths. The game continues with its classic gameplay to hit the right arrow keys to follow a song pattern. Thus keeping the music inflow until you mess up and the opponent takes the cue. So it’s boyfriend vs the clown as the song hits.
Winning the very first week sees Hank making its presence felt in cutscene midway. He takes a shot at Clown which leads him to lose the mask and battle this way in turn. Phase 2 sees Boyfriend battling the clown for a second round with a new and more complicated song. Beating clown the second time sees clown almost die. But a message pops stating you do not kill the clown but the clown kills you. The moment players, boyfriend, and girlfriend think they have won, the clown transforms into a giant fiery dark monster who will battle in phase 3 of the game next.
The last phase sees the most difficult bonus track. Apart from more complicated keys, there are arrows with fire that you are not supposed to click. Accidentally hitting those fire keys may result in blowing boyfriends out. Meaning? You just lost the game. Keeping that in mind, the game continues phase 3 until you beat the clown. Eventually beating Clown frustrates him leading Hank to take the shot but failing as the clown wreaks havoc before disappearing. But the thing is, it’s not over yet. The final cutscenes of phase 3 see someone else watching the battle from a screen as the boyfriend, girlfriend, and Hank celebrates victory. So there will be phase 4 with a new enemy coming to battle boyfriend.
Originally Ninjamuffin99 and three of his friends from Newgrounds developed Friday Night Funkin’. The gameplays go much like the old rhythm games and animation takes cues from the popular 90s flash games. Originally the game came as a prototype submitted to Lum Dum Dare 47. The game was loaded with only two songs but saw immense success. Following that, Ninjamuffin99 started working heavily on the game adding further new options. It soon became the highest-rated game in Newgrounds’ 25-year history. Furthermore, the game went on to trend on social media sites such as YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, and Twitch to follow in.
