I first joined Newgrounds in 2008.
On August 5th, 2011, I wrote this newspost just to say hello. And it still stands: hello there!
On February 18th, 2017, I changed my username from Phenom9 to ThePhenomenon. :)
Jeez, the spot's unknown

Butcherbugs is a shooter game with three medals worth a total of 160 points. Some instructions are found in-game.
- Destroy three parts of the butcher's brain to win. Wait for them to appear. A medal is awarded for each destroyed part. Shoot enemies too so that you are not hit. There are no checkpoints.
- You control five ladybugs, if you lose them all, the game ends. A ladybug is lost when it is hit. Regain ladybugs by shooting green shields.
- Neurons (beams across the screen) block the way and trap you. Pink neurons do not harm, but white ones do.
- Each formation has its advantages, pick according to the situation. Formation 3 is not good. I used 5 most of the time.
- Stay close to the brain parts (you can move over them) so that neurons do not get in the way.
- Practice and pay attention to avoid being hit.
Feedback is welcome.

BearBound is a short adventure game with five medals worth a total of 90 points. Instructions are found in-game. Spoilers ahead.
Move around to find all the endings and get all the medals. It is simple. I created a map that shows a path to each ending starting at home in the middle. The spots that need to be found are numbered.
Find the camp. Number one in the map, where the trunk in the left side is.
Bear it all
Get a career. Number two at the top.
Look Down on Me
Find the secret temple. Number three (big brown temple in the top right).
Find the rocket ship. Number four in the bottom right.
Secret medal Devil of Ski Free
This medal is similar to the others. Look around, it is close to home. It is secret so I cannot tell you about it.

Simple Shapes Game Collab is a hard skill game where you have to complete four mini games. It has five medals worth a total of 425 points (check them in the game page). Instructions are found in-game. The game features drug dealing and profanity. Just saying :)
Score 750 for the medal, that is, destroy 750 enemies. Learn how many bullets each enemy takes to be destroyed and shoot only that amount. Immediately move on to the next enemy once the necessary bullets were shot. Do not wait until they hit the target to move on. Never stop shooting. The author has a video here.
Solve the puzzle in 36 moves or less within the given time to obtain the medal. Here is a big image with the solution (done by me). Follow the steps from left to right. Video is not available.
Get $50000 to achieve the medal. Buy and sell the same amount, it is easier to manage. You can only get caught in the moment a new day begins. The chances of being caught are proportional to the number of grams you have. You can get away with a fairly large number of grams says the author. Buy when the price is low (300s or less) and sell in the next day if the price is higher.
Score 2500 points to get the medal. A video with the author achieving the medal can be found here. The best thing you can do is to copy the video. Watch the video several times to learn the strategy. Even if you defeat the enemy you will not get the medal. You need 2500 points and for that you need to be fast. The cannons (yellow rectangles) can get hit. What cannot get hit is the purple circle in the middle. Use this to your advantage. Always shoot.
Practicing is advised to get all medals. The one I did not mention can be obtained by choosing the option 'PLAY ALL' in the menu and going trough all games (you will have to lose some in order to move on).
Feedback is welcome. If you have anything to add please say.

The Blocks Cometh is a platform game where you climb as high as you can. It was created by Halfbot and has two medals worth a total of 30 points (check them in the game page). Instructions are found in-game.
Stay protected. It will take time. This image describes how. Simply place yourself in a spot where you can not get hit and only leave the 'shelter' to go to a higher one, as shown. Always move to the highest shelter. If there is none, wait for one to be formed. Do not wait too long and fall to the bottom. Use your gun carefully in certain situations, such as when you are stuck. When moving from shelter to shelter, you are vulnerable to falling blocks, so pay attention before moving. Staying protected is the key not to lose.
Feedback is welcome. This is how I did it, if you have a better way or any tips please say.
