Review by tapeworm
The first three things you notice about Johnny are the high-quality arrangement of Gershon Kingsley's Popcorn playing in the background, the strange-looking protagonist, and the terrible controls.

I'll have to admit that having played the sequel (Johnny 2) first made me a lot less forgiving when trying this game.

Johnny does have a few inspired moments and it's quite original throughout, but its originality isn't enough to overshadow the troubled programming. I might think differently had I not played the sequel first.

There may be more redeeming elements late in the game, but a show-stopping bug kept me from passing a certain point.

Note: Kafeithekeaton has posted a three-minute speed run of this game at YouTube.

This is a horrible game with bad graphics. But it's fun in its own weird way. I enjoy playing this game even though there really isn't anything special about it. There are so many bugs and the music gets extremely repetitive, but like the reviewer stated, this game DOES have its redeeming qualities. I give this game a 7.

This game is bizzare.At first I thought Johnny was some sort of creepy dog. It turns out he's just an average joe cursed with a weird mouth. And it should not be fun. From a technical perspective, this game is awful. Yet I keep coming back for more. That's because this game is special. Don't let the low scores fool you. This is a good game, despite all the glitches. Just because it is'nt commercial quality, doesn't mean it's not worth downloading.

Well, okay, I'm not rating this game. Why? BECAUSE I DIDN'T DOWNLOAD IT! Duh! Well, I'm just afraid to...The graphics are kinda scary...
No offense. I'm sure it's a pretty good game.

Nah! I will try to make it long. Like about 2 hours to beat or maybe longer. Why is cooldog too easy for you.

Well When I got to the last level and shot the boss a whole lot of times I noticed johnny kept dieing. So I shot the boss like 10 or 20 times and died. That's All I can tell you.

Well I didn't get stuck anywhere so I beat the whole game. But did you get stuck where that boss with the one eye was? Because that's the last level.

Next time you build a game with gravity don't use the the hspeed or vspeed commands or anything that makes the object move. But you can use the jump command.

That happens when you run it on a computer that doesnt have enough RAM to play the game. Try to shutdown a few programs before playing.

Tapeworm is right.
There is a bug in this game that keeps you from passing a certain point.
But this game is pretty good.
But Johnny could have looked a little bit better.
Good Game though.
I beat the whole game.
It is fun and addicting.
