I've uploaded Unikong to a directory on my developer blog, and used one of my site template styles (the colour goes surprisingly well with Unikong). The copyright referencing Stack Exchange was taken from the bottom of this page (I thought SE was SO now? Kept it Stack Exchange anyhow for safe-keeping.), but if it requires more copyright info/attribution ...

Congratulations! You found the secret feature! ...Yeah, I'll get on fixing that now. EDIT: fixed and live in a few minutes. Thanks for reporting and detailing with screenshots! :)

Found from this SO Meta answer, you can play it from here: https://unikong.github.io/ And it runs super silky smooth no lag no nothing, just as we played on that day!

As I mentioned in the comments, we didn't make this particular rendition of the timeless classic. The credit (also listed in the game itself) belongs to Toast024 on Youtube. We've edited the track to create a version better suited to looping indefinitely. The original was unfortunately taken down by YouTube.

You are playing as Jon Skeet: ordinary guy and sometime super hero. To answer your questions: Not just fire: flaming downvotes. Little-known fact: unicorns are very critical. (Clarification: unicorns are not moderators.) In order to advance, Jon must zap trolls with rainbow lasers. While it does look/sound painful, I believe the effect is not deadly. ...

Given their heads' resemblance to the classic troll face, I'd say they represent GnomeSlice generic internet trolls.

Obviously you didn't read the minimum requirements... of browsing the internet in 2016.

I'm okay with rewarding the effort to make sure the trolls are well and truly dead with a bit of extra rep. Service guarantees citizenship.

Give this a read and see if it helps.

I got the same problem, with the same configuration as you. Simply press Ctrl - That zooms out, so you can see all of it. To get back to regular zoom afterwards, you can either press Ctrl + to zoom in, or Ctrl 0 to go back to the default zoom. Alternatively, You can also try making Firefox full screen by going to the menu button in the top right hand ...

We don't have data for that. We don't track scores for this at all except in local storage for individual users. This was largely dictated by how we ended up having to host the game - it runs off of our CDN, loaded in an iframe, which means we a) don't really know who you are... and b) we could make the submission/tracking part work, but we couldn't verify ...

Shooting it does slow it down, so if you're quick on the trigger you can get to the treasure faster. Also, shooting unicorns is cathartic. If they actually died, you'd just be shooting a dead horse.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap "full site": Then, tap the link in the sidebar: Assuming you have a keyboard app that provides arrow keys (like this one), you should be able to play as if you were sitting in front of a desktop PC.

EDIT: reloaded the page and it's fixed. Thanks @Haney! This is still happening:

The 'person' you play in the game is Jon Skeet. He is well known as the highest reputation user on StackOverflow, with a total rep of > 1 million (official blog post). As such he has become one of the biggest memes on SE, even becoming the Chuck Norris of programming. See, he was thanked in the credits: Note that the game is not 'linked' to his account - ...

It's actually possible to shoot those pesky trolls more than twice, if you fire while moving down a ladder and manage to catch their falling carcass with a well timed series of extra shots. Example: Before: (score = 4350) After: (score = 5100) Difference: minus one troll, plus 750 = 5 × 150 points. :)

According to Adam Lear's answer to Who do the top scores refer to? on Gaming.SE, the trolls represent the top scorers in the leaderboard, but that means that they are also the employees of Stack Exchange.

It represents you (i.e., the user behind the player). That is unless the player is Jon Skeet, in which case it represents this guy.
