Debugging games

I’ve recently began making flash games and have found that I spent a lot of time debugging. What I do is to play the game a lot and try to use all the different options of it and in all the ways that I imagine players may use it. Is there a method that I don’t know to find bugs in the game in a fast way. Or at least to find the most of them before release?

You could get other people to test it for you, they might find bugs in places you never thought of looking…

There’s jerky animation. Try improving it…

For the gameplay: I’ve seen crappier work that tries simple gameplay like this. I like it: Pretty simple… Too simplistic so it gets boring…

I see no bugs…

I was at level 6 and the boy escaped (and I think the baby). I still had a life left, but it wouldn’t say game over or bring me to the next level.
