|» What is dickDynamite
|DickDynamite is an arcade-style
web game reminescent of the 80's arcades such as Pacman and Atomic
It features all of the classic elements of those old-timers:
fast paced action, lots of different bonuses, many different
levels with increasing difficulty, and funny enemies with different
skills and artificial intelligence.
You will guide DickDynamite in a long quest that will take
place in different worlds, in search for ancient treasures,
armed only with dynamite bombs and smartness.

|DickDynamite requires Macromedia
Flash 6 plugin to run.
You can download it from HERE
DickDynamite also requires a 600mhz or better
(reccomended 800mhz and higher) CPU and a decent videocard.
If you meet the requirements and still have troubles playing
the game please use our Forums to

|» Why is DickDynamite
pretty slow on my computer ?
DickDynamite is a very
CPU intensive game.
We've noticed slow downs on older computer with CPU < 800mhz
even if still playable.
The Flash Player also has some very well
known speed issues that can be noticeable on slower CPU.
(this is due mainly to the extreme small size of the player
itself, which makes actionscript not so fast)
Another thing that we have noticed is related to videocards:
older cards ( <= 8mb ) and shared-memory cards render
Some tips to get maximum speed execution:
- close other running applications (eg: other web pages running
flash can slow everything down)
- if you run windows 2000/XP check the TaskManager to see
if you have enough free memory
- Update you Flash Player to the latest version ( get it HERE )
- Use Internet Explorer (under Windows), as it seems to execute
Flash movies noticeably faster than other browsers.
- Choose a lower quality setting to get maximum speed.

The DickDynamite LevelEditor will
let you build your own custom maps, save them and submit
them to the MapArena.
By doing so you'll be able to challenge other users in the Arena.
|» What is the Arena
In the Arena users will
compete by playing each other submitted maps.
Every registered user (registration is free) will be able
to create his own
custom-maps, test 'em and submit 'em, to challange other
You'll start out with 0 points and 5 "credits"
(lives) that will increase or decrease,
based on how well you will play !
When you run out of credits you will be able to "buy"
some of them by spending part of your score ( sub-zero score
are permitted, so you can buy credits even if you score is
negative ! )
Also, there is rating system that will enable
you to submit one vote on each map that you will play.
|» What am I winning,
playing dickDynamite ?
What did you win playing PacMan ? or BubbleBobble
This website is about having fun and sharing knowledge with
other passionate gamers and developers.
Like in every old good arcade you will win your "moment
of glory" by watching at your nickName on
top of the others in the
HIGHSCORE table ! :-)
|» What are credits
in DickDynamite ?
Credits exist only in the Arena instead
Regular arcades usually finish when you run out of lives
(typically 3 or 5).
When you run out of lives (credits) in the Arena you
can get back in the game,"buying" some credits
by spending part of your score even if you haven't scored
a single point. (negative scores are permitted as low as
This will spice up the competition and make tha game more
funny. You will also have a LOWSCORE table
with the worst scores !
|» [ITA] Ma
perchè questo sito non parla come mangia ?
"Noio, voulevan savoir l' indiriss ... "
Come si può facilmente intuire dal dominio
.IT questo sito è nato e cresciuto in Italia, ma allora
perchè non parla italiano ?
Con questo sito ci piacerebbe raggiungere una vasta audience
non necessariamente solo italiana, anzi ambiremmo a condividere
e scambiare idee sul flash gaming con tanti appassionati
e professionisti da un pò tutti gli angoli del pianeta,
ecco perchè non abbiamo potuto "restringerci"
all'utilizzo della nostra amata lingua.
Allo stesso tempo crediamo che la lingua inglese sia diventata
ormai una sorta di standard sul web, capace di fare da ponte
tra le difficoltà di comunicazione che altrimenti
si verificherebbero tra i tanti attori e utenti della rete.
Vi chiediamo perciò un piccolo favore: di comunicare
sul forum in inglese anzichè in italiano,
eventualmente ricorrendo a quella
nostrana inventiva ereditata da Totò e Peppino che
abbiamo citato nel sottotitolo della FAQ.
