See JEDIGEG's last comments for details of how to start the game. As he mentions. The moving arrows that i thought were a loading screen, were in fact indicating that you should click on the image with the LMB and drag it in the direction of the arrows. Unfortunately I don't have time to check this game out and post a short review now (it's 7pm here in the UK) as I'm meeting up with online friends for some gaming. I have provided a link below to Steam community reviews.

This is a mouse controlled platformer, where you use your mouse to swing from platform to platform avoiding the various traps, using a grappling hook controlled by the mouse. It's not very easy to control and I reckon you'll be pulling your hair out after several attempts. It's not Super Meat boy, but a very brief try left me with virtually no progress as I found it difficult to control the movement. The principle sounds great and reminds me of one of my older favorite platformers called Wik and the Fable of Souls, where the protagonist uses its tongue to swing from platform to platform; however graphically Hard man doesn't come close to Wik for visuals. You can see the Steam community reviews of Hard Man which are mainly negative HERE, (due in part to the control mechanism, which some Steam community members are saying it's really hard to control precisely). The last two images are from the Steam store page for the game which costs £0.79/$0.99.

I am having the same problem as White Rabbit. Installed just fine on Windows 7 but when I run the program, it just sits there with part of the N of "Hard Man" Missing. I pressed all the keys on my keyboard as well as click the mouse buttons and the game just doesn't start up after the language screen. Uninstalled. Thanks anyway GAOTD.

My Win 7 PC Specifications
Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1 ,
Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz , 4 Gb memory (DDR 2) ,
NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .

It works under Windows 7 .
Well , all I can say is that it starts .
As White Rabbit-uk said already the game does not go any further from the language screen .
I've checked both languages and left the game run for over one hour but nothing happened .
I will check the Giveaway page later to see if the problem is being addressed .

I've just had a breakthrough .
The 3 arrows moving from right to left are not some kind of loading procedure .
It's an indication that you have to slide the image from right to left (left click and slide) .
It shows a few frames of comic like story and the last frame shows the "start" button .
I've played the game for about 10 minutes , not very successfully , I must admit .
It has a retro look , nice graphics and sound .
It reminds me of another older game and of a very old arcade game but I can't remember their names .
I must say that I've never played any of those games because this kind of games are not my cup of tea . So I can't say anything more about those games or for today's game .

JEDIGEG, Thanks for persevering and discovering the way to start the game, appreciated. It would have been a good idea for the developer to have put some sort of instructions on the start screen. I expect the game engine won't allow that, which is a pity.

Whiterabbit-uk,
you must know by now , how stubborn I can be (Windows XP for example) . :-)
Besides , I hate quitting .
Even when I quit , I don't forget the problem , I just hide it to the back
of mind and keep working on it , like a subroutine of the main program ...
Some times I had a "Eureka" moment weeks , even months after "quitting" .
Maybe it's a flaw of mine and it drives me crazy some times but it's extremely
satisfying when that light bulb over my head , lights up and I finally have
the solution .

About Falco games and the lack of instructions ,
among other problems (like key remapping) .
I believe that it's plain laziness .
I you want to do something , you find a way to do it .
They could create a zip file with the setup.exe and a read me text file containing some basic instructions , could they not ?
So yes , they try to get the maximum profit with the minimum effort .
