Inaccuracy Removed[edit]

"which results in required death."

It is possible to activate this block and not die/progress through. It's hard but you can jump between them when they fall. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:05, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Is this true?[edit]

"Many who have played the game for the first time could not make it past the first level."

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. I finished the game on my first try (after lots of deaths apparently but still) and a friend of mine who started playing at the same time gave up somewhere on the 3rd level I think. Also, the first level is really trial and error, none of the really tough puzzles are in it. So can anyone cite an real statistics or something for this? (talk) 17:21, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

I recall playing this game quite a while a go, and didn't give up on the first go. Sure I died several times at least, but I've beaten the stage, even the game as a matter of fact. So to say that "Many who have played the game for the first time could not make it past the first level." is, in my view, a overstatement. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:26, 14 November 2010 (UTC)


This article seems to need some re-writing. Just sayin'. Superjustinbros. (talk) 02:32, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Enemies list[edit]

the enemies list was vandalized so i fixed it, but i dont think we need a list of enemies. (talk) 21:37, 16 August 2012 (UTC)


This article should not be speedily deleted for lack of asserted importance because... its a good article it was just vandalized-- (talk) 22:49, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

I have moved the article back to where is was a few days ago, changes are still in the history if there was anything good there to keep. Right now, the article is only sourced by Youtube videos and a blog posting. Please take the time to find reliable sources for this article. Thanks! --Tgeairn (talk) 22:53, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
Given the lack of reliable sources in the article, and my failure to find any in a reasonable search, I have proposed a deletion discussion regarding this article. If you are not familiar with the articles for deletion process, it is recommended that editors read WP:AFDEQ before participating in the discussion. --Tgeairn (talk) 23:06, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
I've just found some and cleaned up the article because it was in a terrible state anyway. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 06:08, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

KKK cat and dongs.exe?[edit]

Has it really been referred to by these monikers? I would like to see a source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:56, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

dongs.exe is the filename it uses when you upload it to a website — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:55, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Kind of late to the party but I added dongs.exe moniker source to the article. I believe it was first used in a Something Awful let's play thread started in December 2007 by taxidermistpasta. [1] (talk) 10:09, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Origin of 'Cat Mario' Name?[edit]

Is it an official name, or just a fanmade one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:46, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Shobon or Syobon?[edit]

I'm indecisive on whether this article should be called "Shobon Action" or "Syobon Action". The main character of the game is "(´・ω・`)" which is apparently called "Shobon" (しょぼん) according to AA/Shift_JIS artwork found textboard websites like 2channel, which means the game should be called "Shobon Action" instead, but the game seems to have a long history as "Syobon Action". Any thoughts on this? zwigith[?] 04:27, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

I've moved it back to Syobon Action, for reasons outlined in the edit history (WP:COMMONNAME, "syobon" is a valid transliteration). Sonictrey (talk) 17:09, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
