Theres not much to say about this, as it's not much of a flash animation; but it is very well programmed. It was perfectly accurate, well done.
There were a few things that got to me.
First of all, the way you used the music. The music didn't quite fit in with the flash. You just played the tracks over the flash without them fitting in to well with what was going on (except for the sadness and sorrow one which fitted in nicely). It felt to me as though I was listening to my Ipod whilst watching the flash, and the music and animation just didn't quite go together (I actually have final destination and Show no tears on my Ipod, though that is irrelivent.)
Secondly, I can clearly see that you are a very good sprite animator however there were a few parts of the animation where I just thought; 'Meh'. The fight scene was where I felt this the most. It felt more like turn based combat rather than a proper fight at some points (although you did an excellent job on some parts). For example you had sonic & Mecha sonic running side by side for about 5 seconds. That was pretty boring fight wise. To make stuff like that more interesting, maybe have mecha sonic shooting at sonic whilst sonic dodges the shots or something along those lines. In a fight to the death the fight should be epic, and I know you have the potential to incorporate better stuff into a scene like that.
Finally, the drama with falco and sonics transformation, just wasn't very dramatic. You may have chosen a good song, but the whole thing just didn't seem believable, neither did it feel entirely sad. I think it could have been improved with some more sound effects, for example a cry of pain as falco is obliterated.
These are just my thoughts though. I'm probably being a bit harsh with my review; I know I'm no animator, and I've also been stunned recently by the brilliance of SMBZep8, however I'm sure you can understand why I can't give you a 10 with something like that out there. Keep up the animating though, its obvious you have great potential.
Once again Alvin, you surpass all expectations and somehow manage to make an episode that is even more epic than those before it. I really liked the hand drawn close ups and even the 3D stuff was cool, even though it may not have fitted the style perfectly. I really look forward to the next episode.
Despite the fact that you apparently rushed this, you did an amazing job. I loved your choice of music and I think that you captured each artists style exeptionally well considering that this was done in 8 days. I hope to see more brilliant animations like this coming from you in the future.
When I saw in the reviews that this was similar to the Madness series, I was very doubtful that I would enjoy this flash. I've hatred all the Madness games and movies on Newgrounds (just my opinion) so I thought I would hate this to. Fortunatly, you made this differently. All I can say is that I am so glad I pressed play, it had had me glued to the screen throughout. I loved every minute of it, from start to finish. If you are making a BunnyKill5 then please go along the same lines as this, because this is pure awesome.
Well, I have seen many things on Newgrounds but this tops it all. The origional Nin10Doh has been a top favourite of mine since you released it so when I saw that this was released I thought ' what more could they possibly do'. Needless to say you left me dumbstruck in my seat trying to put together some of what I'd just seen. 100% Hilarity, 100% Randomness, 100% origionality and 0% crap. I seriously cannot say anything bad about this. The pokemon xxx thing was just something different altogether. I can see why people may have lowered their ratings because of it but I'm glad you included it. You guys truley are genius's.
Flash Portal History 2008!
Why Newgrounds? Why?!
The ending was completely unexpected. I never would have seen it coming.
The parody of Rise of the mushroom kingdom was hilarious also.
Very nicely done overall. Keep up the good work.
thx a lot i wasn't sure if people were going to get outake three so i was a little skeptical on putting it on here. im glad you liked it thx for the review :D
Dear God Where to Begin?
First of all I lost all hope of this being decent by the fact that you used the Icon from SMBZ ep 7 for your movie. Instant failure, always use something origional and that is part of your work.
Second, the only way I could play this was by right clicking the blue screen and clicking forward. Chances are no-one else figured that out so any other reviews you'll get are likely to be compalining that all you put here was a blue screen. WIther that or my comp's playing up on me.
Even if thats the case:
Make the damn sprite contrast with the background. Don't have a white/black box around it.
Also, give it a proper background, not a blue screen.
Also, use a proper flash program, even spam is better animated than this.
FInally, learn how to animate before ever posting anything on Newgrounds, ever again.
This is what NG is for!
First of all I would like to congratulate you on getting your 3 trophies for this flash. Needless to say, you certainly deserved them.
I've watched this at least 5 times already. The animation was perfect, it fitted the music superbly. Great choice of music to. I certainly hope you're considering making a Rockoons 3. The first 2, especially this one have been great to watch. In all honesty I envy your brilliant animating skills.
