Did you know this was included on a PC Format coverdisk, issue 226? That's where I got it from, too big for me to download myself.
One thing: Once you've thrown the brick the first time, it's kinda hidden behind the shards and it's not obvious to pick it up again. The bicycle tube was a bit of a pixel scrape too.
Otherwise, excellent. Hoping for a sequel!
I want to translate your game in french.

Graphics in the game are done well, although faces and characters in the game don't have a lot of character in my eyes. All characters in the game seem to have quite hollow personalities so I really didn't fall in love with one of them. But anyway, they are drawn in a very clean detailed way.
What I didn't like were the homogenic puzzles: Most of them were clichee puzzles. There were about five "open-the-locked-door-or-cabinet" puzzles. This is really a pitty, because it's just "fill-the-game-with-nothing" stuff.
Music was well sampled and fit very good to the game. The interface was comprehensible and clear as well.
The most disappointing thing about the game was the ending. I expected some kind of final message. But it just was finished when I managed to leave the prison. I think a short game like this one shouldn't be finished in this way with a "to be continued" sentence. The great credits video in the ending was just a very small satisfaction for me...
Also the quantity of blood and unnecessary violence didn't really fit and was kind of misplaced in my eyes...
So my final conclusion is "Earl Mansin" is a very detailed and perfected game, but it doesn't really have a soul. I prefer "Earl Bobby" to "Earl Mansin" after all...
Good luck with your next game!
The puzzles might be a bit too logical for their own good, as that makes them pretty easy. Still, I enjoyed solving them.
A must play for everyone (except little kids, maybe).
